Supporting the Education Revolution

[ 0 ] July 16, 2012 |

A great article by Rob Nail today over at Huffington Post on the complicated education infrastructure, politics and aged paradigm.

If we want to hasten the transformation of education, we should not only acknowledge that we are in the awkward early-growth stage, but fully embrace it. We should be trying out every new concept and technology and helping the education innovators evolve and iterate their products quickly.

Within the education industry we see the government, administrators, corporations, startups and entrepreneurs.  The last two – young and nimble – are pushing through and around the slow-to-change status quo.

Nail lists four areas we should be watching:

  1. Social networking
  2. Artificial Intelligence and Adaptive Learning
  3. Sensors and Feedback Technologies
  4. Neuroscience and Psychology
