Fifteen years ago, education was expected to change as did the world with the introduction of technology. By now we're supposed to be flying in hover cars, creating human from animal cadavers and all become brainless beings from constant attachment to our devices…. Right? Well now there’s a new prediction of our future for education, although the system has basically been the same for centuries, campaigns have arisen for a different infrastructure. For example, CFHE (Campaign for the Future of Higher Education) announced their concerns in a hearing with U.S Department of Education. Initiated in May 2011, they believe “what is at stake is NOTHING LESS THAN OUR DEMOCRACY and economic standing in the global economy”. In the hearing President of the organization Vivian Price said their three main concerns were funding, MOOC’s and online technology solutions to costs and access problems, and linking funding? Student aids to graduation rates and other rates/statistics. Interpretation: money, student learning and categorization. But what about student interest, could that be a problem linked to student learning? If learning was student-based would that stop students from getting answers on the internet? Would that build trust in the education system again? Most subjects are repeats, reviews or somehow overlapped, and then there are subjects that fall into one of three categories: “Why should I care”, “how is this going to help me in the REAL world” or “Huh?” How about subjects that engage students or more programs that link technology, career paths, and mentoring with learning? IFTF.org has a learning flow map that brings key shifts into education; environment, interaction, tools used and ENTICED learning. That’s basically the whole system, Right? Students have changed from the 1800’s, 1900’s! there’s an increasingly amount of students enrolling in two year rather than four year colleges which is linked to issues of money, categorization by standardized tests and unpreparedness. Wow, so we come back to the three concerns as mentioned before? But there’s also a connection to students having more hands-on classroom experiences and concentrated teachers than in large four year universities. As a student perspective, there’s definitely more security and confidence in the transition. What do you think?
