For a long time, I used to say that I liked using technology in education because I thought that it made good pedagogy more accessible to more students and teachers. Recently, however, I've come to realize that technology can also make BAD pedagogy easier and more accessible to students as well.
Technology, of course, is the tool, and how that tool is going to be used is really out of control of the inventor and in the hands of the users.
So recognizing that technology has a role in defining the future of education, what do you think that the future looks like? Are we looking at a grassroots utopia or top-down dystopia? Are we student-focused? Score-focused? Evaluation-focused?
So let's play a game. Define your time horizon (how many years from now) and share your stories of the education of the future. Where do things stand? What had to happen to get there? Is your future of education a best-case scenario, worst-case scenario, or somewhere in between?
I can't wait to see what you come up with! :)
