A Vision for Lifelong Learning: Year 2020
Hinrichs, Randy
European Journal of Engineering Education, v29 n1 p5-16 2004
The sweet spot for the use of technology in education may clearly be that software personalizes the learning experience, connects all the components and emancipates publication for targeted and effective interaction. In the future, no one owns content as an end product. It is molecular at its origin. MIT will give away their content for free, other institutions will follow with interactivity innovations, and quality content will be consumed in chunks by whoever needs it. Through a filter of standards, tools and personalization templates (for both individuals and groups), we shall be able to aggregate learning content, the relationships between the content and our context for using the content in such a way that it becomes part of our own personal value proposition when studying or working with others. The objective: obtain and create knowledge at the right time, in the right place, in the right way, on the right device, for the right person. Topics discussed in this article include: intelligent toys (first few months of life), game-based learning (preschool), social collaboration and filtering (K-8), increased community communication (high school), and lifelong learning (college).
