Forced Education: Schools of the Future

TeLearning Conference, Videoconferenced to Hobart, Australia, Department of Education, Tasmania.

I gave this talk in a darkened government building downtown by videoconference to Hobart. It was not without technical difficulties, but we pulled it off. I was asked to speak on the drivers affecting education today, and the resulting school of the future. I introduced my 'three laws' of drivers (Second Law: For every driver, there is an equal and opposite backseat driver). Overall, I concluded that Students will begin in simulated environments, but as these environments mature, they will become more real, seamlessly transitioning into reality. Brochure.
