5 Higher Ed Trends NOT to Watch in 2010

Commentary by Stephen Downes

Tony Bates: "If this is the way of the future, frankly I give up." He is responding to Campus Technology's 5 Higher Ed Tech Trends to Watch in 2010. He has a point. The article describes, first, fancier classrooms, and then second, computers you bring to those classrooms. Bates writes, "What next? Lecturers dressed as clowns, doing juggling? Come on, guys, the space-based lecture classroom is DEAD (actually, a zombie, as it's really still the living dead)." We also see from the five items whiteboards that are used in the classrooms and a rehash of the old 1:1 computer per student ratio. Maybe this set of predictions from ReadWriteWeb is better?
