The Ed Tech Journey and a Future Driven by Disruptive Change
Grush, Mary, Ed.
Campus Technology, v24 n1 p39-46 Sep 2010
In this article, the author talks about the education technology journey and a future driven by disruptive change. The author first provides a definition of disruptive change. To understand the potential for disruptive change in higher education--a disruption fueled by technology and related trends--the author begins with a look at the past and the roots of the global digital revolution. Then the author looks at whether this same digital revolution has impacted or disrupted education and discusses some technologies and trends that one should keep watching as they begin to demonstrate their powerful impact. Next, the author considers the very significant future impacts--and potential disruptions--that these technologies may cause. The author moves on and looks at learning technology trends, especially the emergence of the personal learning environment [PLE] and the open learning network [OLN], e-portfolios, and the semantic Web.
