Future of Education Part 1

2012 seems to have become the year of Future Education.

We have never seen a dramatic increase in attention and discourse in online learning and education before.

Here we go, with the MOOCs, especially the x MOOC movement, just an year old phenomenon, and is still growing.

What would be the future of education?  There are ongoing debates about it.  I have shared some of my perspectives herehere, here, and here.

If future of education relates to higher education, then would it also be a good time to reflect on what it means to education throughout the whole spectrum of life?  This includes K-12, vocational and further education, higher education, distance and online education,  and life-long and wide learning and education.

How about education of k-12?

Peter Senge comments on the Future of Education.

To me, engagement and critical thinking is critical to our Future Education, where kids and adults would be engaged actively in networks and cooperate and collaborate to serve each others and the communities and networks.
