Future of Education
This is the first part of a report (64 page PDF) that will see additional parts released in the coming months, according to Kristal Kuykendall (whose summary is better than the actual report). The three major themes predicted as the future of education are stunning in their banality: rising demand for global problem solvers, change in the skill sets required for work (problem solving, critical thinking, etc), and the idea of lifelong learning. There's a bit more detail in the pages that follow, but it's mostly nice pictures and gloss. Google is certainly capable of much better, so this report is revealing in that it shows what Google thinks of its intended audience. To wit: not much.
