How will disruptive technology change education?

Jeroen Bottema's curator insight, August 27, 2013 2:08 AM

"

What will education look like in the future?

Considering that 10 years ago very few students carried smartphones, andtablets didn’t even exist, it’s impossible to look 20 or 30 years into the future. It is likely, however, that cloud-based technology will be the foundation for educational technology and that remote, online learning will continue to grow at a faster pace.

Will the developing world catch up with the developed world? Will residential colleges be as popular as they are today? And what about degrees…will they still mean something to employers?"

Treathyl Fox's comment, August 27, 2013 10:09 AM
I'm not a geek or tech type. I should have kept up with the technology revolution, but I didn't. But with respect to what I did learn and derive benefits from? If it's real progress, let it run its course. Don't get in the way and don't try to stop it. "Education is priceless."
Treathyl Fox's curator insight, August 27, 2013 10:11 AM

"Education is priceless."  It's not a process that should be disrupted.  If technology is disruptive, that's just ignorant!
