Learning in Tomorrow's Classrooms
Bowman, Richard F.
Clearing House: A Journal of Educational Strategies, Issues and Ideas, v88 n2 p39-44 2015
Teaching today remains the most individualistic of all the professions, with educators characteristically operating in a highly fragmented world of "their" courses, "their" skills, and "their" students. Learning will occur in the classrooms of the future through a sustainable set of complementary capabilities: listening, speaking, writing, connecting, and leading. Relationships, communication, and collaboration will be the dominant themes in tomorrow's hyperconnected classrooms. Viewing and caring about the consequences of another's work will serve as the foundation of mutuality in the classrooms of the future. The most far-reaching question for learners in tomorrow's classrooms will be: How can socially perceptive learners and computers be connected so that collectively they act more intelligently than any one person, team, or computer?
