As technology continues to become more complex, new tools such as adaptive tutoring software, which teaches students in real time, will likely be used. Also, advances in neuroscience such as learning more about how the brain works and learns, will make education more productive. There may possibly even be a point at which we can download information directly into our brains. Teachers in the future will have to be able to help teach students how to use this technology effectively, and support students learn how to make discoveries themselves.
In the future, as now, the secret of education will be learning how to learn. How to navigate all of this information. Also, specialization will continue to be important as the world becomes more and more complex. People are still going to have to ask good questions in order to get new information, and encouraging that will be part of the job for educators.
All of this is aligned with my philosophy on education. I think technology is inevitable and it should be used. Students will have to use technology in their lives outside of school and therefore should be using it in school. Yet, educators must not rely solely on technology to teach students information. Encouraging critical thinking, problem solving and discovery will continue to be necessary in classrooms in the future.
