The Future of Education: Epic 2020

 

Video made by Bill Sams, an Ohio University executive, grabbing educators’ and technologists’ attention predicting free and low-cost online courses will become the new standard instead of tuition-based models.


Degrees soon will be replaced by certificates and badges following the model adopted by the Khan Academy, the Mozilla Open Badges program and Udacity, started by Stanford professor Sebastian Thrun. who taught a free, open online course in 2011 that drew more than 160,000 registrations worldwide.

 

Sams: “It’s not my sole objective to be right or wrong here, but to get people talking about things that need to be discussed,” Sams said in an interview with eCampus News.

 

“All of us are trapped in the paradigm of how things have been, the system we’ve existed in all of our lives. … A lot of [educators] have a worldview that makes it impossible for them to even see solutions to problems that exist today.”

 

Most people don't see the possibilities, still not being aware of the current trends and the lightning speed with which changes are taking place right now. This is not something of the future, the shift to open and mostly free educatin models has already begun.

Salman Khan talk at TED 2011 (from ted.com)

RT: Salman Khan talks at TED 2011 about how and why he created the remarkable Khan Academy, a carefully structured series of educational videos offering complete curricula in math and, now, other subjects. He shows the power of interactive exercises, and calls for teachers to consider flipping the traditional classroom script -- give students video lectures to watch at home, and do "homework" in the classroom with the teacher available to help.

In 2004, Salman Khan, a hedge fund analyst, began posting math tutorials on YouTube. Six years later, he has posted more than 2.000 tutorials, which are viewed nearly 100,000 times around the world each day. The Khan Academy is a nonprofit organization with the goal of providing free world-class education.All Khan Academy's courses are available everyone, everywhere, completely free of charge. 9 mar 2011
