Dreaming About the Future of Education
Many of the teachers I talk with spend a lot of time thinking about the future of education and technology. Today I thought it would be interesting to have the same kind of discussion with students. During class we watched a video from the 2009 Technology, Entertainment, and Design (TED) conference debuting a wearable “Sixth Sense” device from the MIT Media Lab. Students discussed their reactions in class, and I’ve also invited them to post their reactions here. (You can watch the video by clicking the play button or clicking on the link above.)
Students: What did you think of the Sixth Sense device? How do you think such a device might change the way we go about our everyday lives? How do you think such a device might change learning in and outside of school?
