That is one heck of a picture huh? Anyway I read this article on Gizmodo talking about three pieces written at the Washington Post. Yep, I’m writing about an article that was written about three other articles. That’s pretty avant-garde. At any rate these articles discuss the shift that is happening in journalism. While none of them actually agree on the state of journalism, they do recognize that the Internet and the availability of news online is the cause of this change.
It got me thinking, what has the Internet done to force education to change? Are we in a major shift right now? If so, what is that shift and what direction is it heading. It seems pretty clear that newspapers will continue to get smaller and that self journalism will continue to grow, but what about schools, teachers, curriculum, textbooks and education in general.
There is definitely a lot of talk going on, but what will it yield? It is not so easy to see or answer these questions. We hear at IT Babble want YOU the informed reader to give us your opinion. Give us your thoughts. Give us your crazy dreams of schools in the twenty-fourth century. What does tomorrow bring? Will we all be working for the Khan Academy in 10 years? Tell us your vision of the future of education.
In case that was too subtle, we want you to leave a comment please. Omar and I feed on them like candy corn.
