I came across the following video the other day:
While I plan on being retired or close to it in the year 2020, I was really excited to see what Daly(2011) had envisioned for the future of education.Â I also noticed that more teachers are already taking the lead.Â Teachers are becoming facilitators of learning, not just the providers.Â Education is now becoming more interactive and collaborative.Â Students can learn with a constructivist method of education (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Constructivism_(learning_theory)#cite_note-SML-0).
In my school district, there has been a bigger focus on inclusion just for the sheer reason of declining enrolment: we cannot afford to hire as many teachers as before.Â What results is combined classes where inclusion and differentiated instruction becomes a necessity.Â Daly (2011) stated that learning will become individualized and autonomous.Â While some may see this as a challenge, I see it as an exciting opportunity.Â We can use technology to provide a more effective means of instructing our students.
Web 2.0 is becoming more popular as a teaching tool.Â It has allowed students and teachers to become more collaborative and create effective collectives.Â What I wonder is how the development of Web 3.0 will affect education?
Will education become more intelligent and omnipresent as shared in Evolution Web 1.0, Web 2.0 to Web 3.0?
I would appreciate comments to expand on this thread.
