Year-end Food for Thought

This will be the last Tool & Tip of 2010, and I thought it might be a good idea to reflect on the past and look to the future.  I have two sources of inspiration for you.

One is a video… Brave New World Wide Web.  It compares 20th century learning with 21st century learning.  It was originally posted in 2008, but is still relevant today.  I hope it gets you thinking about one small change you can make to bring yourself forward.  I can help and support you in that process.

The second is a blog post from December of 2009, but it’s still fitting and good food for thought…

21 Things That Will Become Obsolete in Education by 2020.

Some of these things are radical shifts in how schools operate today.  What would be on your list?

This week’s drawing will be for a 1:1 session to learn something new in GoogleApps–this can be “just getting started” or an advanced feature, depending on where you’re at.  We’ll schedule a time at your convenience.

To enter, send me an email with one of two things:

  • One small change to bring yourself forward tech-wise.  (Inspired from the video)
  • One (or two) things you think will become obsolete in education by 2020.
