Session 12--What the Future Has in Store for Education
Some believe the future will look like more of the same—more
smartphones, tablets, screens embedded in every conceivable surface. David Rose
has a different vision: technology that atomizes, combining itself with the
objects that make up the very fabric of daily living. Such technology will be
woven into the background of our environment, enhancing human relationships and
channeling desires for omniscience, long life, and creative expression. The
enchanted objects of fairy tales and science fiction will enter real life.
No one really has a crystal ball telling us what the future holds. Given that this course's mission was to revolve itself around, and expose you to, technology that can be used to teach the adult learner; and given the fact that the evolution of the tools and resources covered this semester are evolving at an exhausting pace I thought that we would end with 'possibilities...'
We will meet in room 301C Thursday, 12/14 from 4:30-7:30ish at the Providence Campus. This is a computer lab and will allow you to use the projector to present your Final Projects. Please review the description on the syllabus to make sure that you are aware of the criteria and guidelines. AND ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS HAVE A PLAN B in case the tech doesn't work right.
Until then dream...
