The prediction of most interestg to educators is 'the classroom will learn you'. "Sophisticated analytics delivered over the cloud will help teachers make decisions about which students are at risk, their roadblocks, and the way to help them." Essentially correct – but what the article misses is that the ‘classroom’ will be wherever you happen to be, and won’t necessarily be some place you have to go to any more. Other predictions: buying local will beat online;doctors will use your DNA to keep you well; a digital guardian will protect you online; and the city will help you live in it.
