8 trends that provide a glimpse into where institutional education is headed

Happy Thanksgiving to our American subscribers. Hopefully you’re spending it with your social bubble and connecting with extended family via the Internet?

I was tempted to take the day off, but instead have elected to make it a media issue. Here’s a video I made a few weeks ago, for an event I’m doing this weekend for the British Colombia School Trustees Association.

While it is another in my series of animal farm videos, it is also designed to demonstrate the concept of a flipped classroom. Rather than give a lecture at this weekend’s virtual event, I sent them this video weeks in advance, so that their members, school trustees from across British Columbia, could watch the video, and we could spend our time together discussing the arguments I make in the video.

Specifically I highlight 8 trends that I think provide a fantastic framework for contemplating the future of (public) education:

  1. Flipped Classroom
  2. Joy of Learning
  3. Authority and Influencers
  4. Critical thinking
  5. Collaboration
  6. Automation and AI
  7. Digital Divide
  8. Privacy and Surveillance

If you want to know more about these trends, then please watch the video, and let us know what you think.

Alternatively was there something I missed? #metaviews
