The Edvocate recently reached out to educators and industry experts around the country to gauge their thoughts on the future of education: 106 Experts Share Their Thoughts on the Future of Education. Here are the thoughts I had the opportunity to shared:
It is a very exciting time to be in K12 education! It’s also a bit frightening to think about the world that our youngest learners will be entering in the decade of the 2030s. Are we focusing on the “right things”? While nobody has a crystal ball and can predict what will be, we can shift our ways of thinking about school and education from a paradigm that is school-centered to one that is learner-centered, reflecting the hyper-personalized world we live in. If we can provide our learners with the ability to be expert learners for life, we will have done our work well. The future of education is promising, and the exciting work of today is helping stakeholders, educators and learners understand the need for change now that will prepare the way for a future of constant learning.
