2020 Visions: Transforming Education and Training Through Advanced Technologies

Various authors, U.S. Department of Commerce, Sept 20, 2002
Commentary by Stephen Downes

This book-length PDF is a collection of visions of what education will be like in 2020. As such, it is very uneven, ranging from the corporate document (complete with a cover page and introduction by Bill Gates) provided by Microsoft to the haunting story offered by Michael Zyda and Douglas H. Bennett in "The Last Teacher" (not at all what the title suggests). Also worth reading the The Learning Federation's "Next Generation Learning Systems and the Role of Teachers" which depicts, with a detailed charge, how the role of teacher will fragment into a dozen or so specialist positions. This book should be read from the standpoint of exercising your own thinking rather than as a guide to the future.
