Education 2050 – Neural and Networked

No one wants advice, only collaboration.
~ John Steinbeck(1902 – 1968)

Well this blog is kind of morphing into a place for sharing ideas that will hopefully guide our WiredWednesday conversations.  It wasn’t the vision and it needs more time, but i just don’t have it right now.  I do want to share this though as it is one of the more powerful things i have seen recently:

Some parts i really found provocative:

  • schools exist as a place to send kids while grown ups work
    • a teacher whose students don’t learn will not get fired; but one that allows their students to run around the city would.
  • what will be the mark of a good teacher in 2050
  • building intellectual alloys
  • basic building blocks of Education in the 21st century
  • participatory, personalize, post-national
  • two million minutes
  • writing
    • average writing assignment:  a paragraph to one page and length
  • brain research in 2050
  • if email is outdated; where does that put books and writing
  • choosing which form is more/most appropriate?
    • exactly what Bill and i were promoting with our PBL initiative
  • lifelong vs. k-12
  • long term problems within a “short-term” game (politics)
