How Education will Change in Twenty Years Dictionary.com Technology--the branch of knowledge that
deals with the creation and use of technical means and their interrelation with life, society, and the environment. Technology
by Jonathon Phou

Technology’s a teacher
That runs while we walk,
A connective creature
That ticks while we talk

Technology’s a tool
That beeps while we breathe,
A fostering fuel
That rings while we reap

Technology’s a light
That guides while we go,
A creative child
That learns while we know

Technology’s a craft
That sows while we seam,
A reverie raft
That sails while we dream by Jonathon Phou "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world" Nelson Mandela -- “Do not confine your children to your own learning, for they were born in another time.”
--Hebrew Proverb "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire"--William Yeats An Online Education

More students will utilize learning tools online because it makes education free and flexible Works Cited Creativity--the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc. Renaissance--a revival or rebirth, especially of culture and learning, literature and the arts "Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire."
--William Yeats How do you think education and technology will look in 20 years time. What might have changed and why? What might be the same and why? What tools/resources might be needed to contribute to technology and education? Question of the Day: The first question we must ask is:

How did our general standards for public education arise? Public educational institutions were created in direct response of the Industrial Revolution.

Particular emphasis was placed on mathematics and the sciences because they were fundamental to practically every industry.
Technology is progressing at an exponential rate
Education is the backbone of our society
Better/Stronger education= Better/Stronger jobs Why Our Focus and Funding
on Education
will Continue to Increase “We educate our children from the feet up, until eventually, we get to their brains. Then, we lean to one side.” —Ken Robinson Yet, education's goal should not be to SEPARATE intelligence into specific disciplines... But to integrate each discipline... So that they exercise... the entirety of our minds and imagination. "In the future, students taking a final exam will be able to silently scan the Internet via their contact lens for the answers to the questions, which would pose an obvious problem for teachers who often rely on rote memorization. This means that educators will have to stress thinking and reasoning ability instead."
--Machio Kaku, Physics of the Future

***Thus, education will favor critical thinking over standardized knowledge. The hierarchy of academic disciplines according to our current educational system goes as follows (from most stressed to least stressed): 1. Formal and natural sciences (Math, Chemistry, etc.)
2. Social Sciences (Political Science, Economics, Psychology)
3. Humanities (History, Literature, Philosophy) This hierarchy will not change entirely, but...

there WILL be greater emphasis on the humanities and social sciences than before This means there will be more music, dance, choir, literature, psychology, and political science courses

In other words, a renaissance, or rebirth, of art and literature, even in the midst of a scientific/information/digitial era Public Speech, Leadership, and Foreign Language

In a diversified world, the understanding of different cultures and languages has become increasingly imperative

Therefore, students will be taking more foreign language courses and starting learning them earlier

In a communication era, the ability to speak and communicate is important

Therefore, students will have to take speech and leadership courses From Robinson's TED Video:

Teacher: “Little girl, what are you drawing?”
Little girl: “I'm drawing a picture of God.”
Teacher: “But nobody knows what God looks like.”
Little girl: “They will in a minute.” The story of the Millionaire Dancer

Mom: “I think Gillian has a learning disorder.”

The psychologist turned on the radio.
Both mom and psychologist left the room. Moments later, Jillian rose to her feet and began moving to the music.

“Mrs. Lynn, your daughter isn’t sick. She’s a dancer.”

Gillian grew up to be one of the lead theatrical choreographers for Cats and The Phantom the Opera

As Ken Robingson puts it, "someone else would’ve put her on medication and told her to calm down." "In the next 30 years, according to Unesco, more people, worldwide, will be graduating through education than since the beginning of history. Suddenly, degrees aren't worth anything. We need to radically rethink our view of intelligence."-- Robinson

Education is a means of exploration
Education should create, cultivate, and challenge the mind
Education should open the mind to options and opportunities, not close it to a standardized way of thinking In the end,
what should education be? Technological Literacy

Although, students and educators will grow up with most of the technology they use

However, they will definitely need to have lessons on how to use technology that advances faster than they can But come on! What AWESOME technology are we going to have?! How about...
