The Future of Education: Surveying the School of 50 Years From Today
In this week’s education headline roundup, we’ll take a look at Houston ISD’s new superintendent and his controversial decision to convert school libraries into discipline centers, the California Department of Education’s effort to suppress the publication of a study using the state’s education data, and a new educational offering from NASA.
Our episode this week delves deep into the future of education. We’ll discuss how artificial intelligence may continue to creep into classrooms, how climate change and green technologies will be making a bigger impact, and how COVID will continue to haunt our classrooms (and maybe our brains). We’ll wonder what might replace standardized testing, whether VR might be able to transport our students into historical events, and whether public education in the U.S. can find a new funding model. Join us for this look 50 years into the future!
