Is technology a threat to our education?

My short answer ? No. It will change how we educate and what options we have for education. I was asked a question in a survey last night – How do we prepare people for the future of education? That is a tough question to answer in 2014. Technology is rapidly changing how we interact and how we can interact and what our daily lives look like. Watching this video makes it  possible to have a look at some of the implications of technology in an education setting. It won’t just be holograms and virtual objects instead of real ones. Augmented reality is going to play a bigger role as will voice, video and image. Streaming others into a classroom will be a distinct possibility and participating in online collaboration and learning will be ubiquitous. I dread the thought we’ll plug students into a port and download information directly to their brains. That will make humans no different from a computer. You might know things but that is not knowledge. You have to live learning to really know it. I know how to make Vietnamese cold rolls. Putting that information into practice was an epic fail of spectacular proportions last night. So I had to go through the inquiry approach and then the discovery learning and after four attempts I got a respectable Vietnamese cold roll. That is the concept 10, 000 hours of learning which psychologists have discovered you need to master something. I can see a mix of real classrooms and virtual ones. I can see classroom walls dissolving into virtual classrooms when needed and , as a result, learning no longer restricted by time and space.Legally that could cause some real headaches and keeping individuals safe will be an issue.  You might see it differently. We won’t be able to predict how it will be because we don’t know everything about current research. That will determine some of how education is delivered as will economic preferences. It’s a good question to ponder. The possibilities are interesting and the debate should be lively.
