Okay, am totally tempted not to tag this with either #edem630 or #sp4ed……surely my ramblings and wanderings as I use this blog to muddle my way through are going to become ho-hum! (great word :p)
My thinking now, with food in my belly and the remnants of pretty much a whole tree around me, is that I’ve found some clarity.
With my Abu Dhabi hat on….
Issue: what will education in 2030 look like?
Axis ‘thingys’ : one axis on the uncertainty regarding personalisation of learning – what is learnt, how and why etc. Who will be ‘in control’ of the learning? Student vs govt / central agency. A second axis exploring idea of fragmented, individualistic vs. cohesive, community at the other.
Technology (broad sweeping term here for now) is a trend – it will impact on education regardless of which scenario is to come true. But how it will impact will be different for each. So I’ll explore technology within each quadrant. Then, when writing the conclusion to the scenario I’ll make implications for change, such as relating to assessment practices, rethinking rules on BYOD & establishing culturally-required safetynets etc.
Yep, don’t worry – the actual matrix is still to come. My indecipherable scribble is about to be technologized! :p
Definitely still open to comments on the earlier post though, and the idea of having ‘assessment’ as a key uncertainty.
