Future Educational Technology Trends

  • Flipping Your Curriculum

    Flipping Your Curriculum
    Flipped curriculum has many definitions, and yet no absolute definition. I like the loose definition of flipping the responsibility of learning from the teacher to the student. In some scenarios, the idea of flipped learning is for students to learn lower-level tasks and content material as homework allowing for higher-order tasks, discussion, and in-depth analysis and practice to occur during instructional time in the classroom. I have done a bit of this, and hope to do more.
  • Digital Literacies

    Digital Literacies
    I think the most important element of digital literacy is the ability to evaluate credible information sources, use sources according to copyright law, and be able to choose the appropriate tool for the task--I don't want students that want to use technology for bells and whistles, but for access to resources and for articulate, engaging content in student created publications.
  • Blended Learning

    Blended Learning
    A rose by any other name...
    Blended learning is the new catchphrase! Call it differentiated curriculum, centers, personalized instruction, multiple intelligences, or flipped learning, but it seems that blended learning has been around for many years. It's new incarnation includes applying the use of technology as a regular part of instruction both in and out of class, and combines several other modes of instruction as part of lesson content. This is a definite 'trendsetter!'
  • BYOD: Bring Your Own Device

    BYOD: Bring Your Own Device
    The BYOD trend has the potential for huge impact on schools both in terms of access for more students and in terms of a financial boon for strapped school budgets. I've had many students ask if they can bring their iPads to school while the school is concurrently struggling to get one iPad cart okay'd for purchase. I think students will be more invested in learning on their own devices.
  • Online Classes

    Online Classes
    Future trends include the increase of online courses as part of the norm for academic learning both in public and private schools. I wish that this was available now. I think the energy level and ability for students to focus in class is maxed out after several hours. I'd love to have morning classes of academics and the afternoons free for explorative classes and/or online classes. I think this format has the potential to reinvigorate both students and teachers.
