The Future of Education
Our American educational system will change more in the next 10 years than it has in the last 100. To understand how it will change, one needs only to look at the rich and tumultuous history of our schools. Colonialism, expansionism, industrialism, and social change have all had dramatic effects on the way our schools have been organized, meet the needs of students, and serve society. The information revolution has changed our world more dramatically than any of the previous paradigm shifts. It will change school as well. Dr. Haskell will talk about the trends of societal and systemic change, the tools of the information age, and suggest ways that learning and teaching will likely change in the future.
