Module #4

What will the typical school be like in 2025? What changes will technology cause? What will be new? Which technologies will succeed, and which old ideas will be thrown away and forgotten, just as blackboards, chalk, and slates have been consigned to the past?

Consider a typical government-funded school in the UK or the US. Ask yourself which technologies the government might deem most useful for educational purposes. You should consider various technologies that have been covered throughout this chapter, including:

  • The use of laptop computers, smart phones and PDAs in the classroom
  • Interactive whiteboards
  • Textbooks versus e-books
  • Open content versus commercial content
  • Blended learning
  • Virtual worlds in the classroom
  • Any other relevant technologies that might be used in schools of the future

Create a presentation called Schools of the Future. Evaluate the likelihood of 3 of these technologies succeeding or failing in schools, with clear reasoning and reference to all aspects of the ITGS triangle.


You will have 2 days to construct you presentation. On the third day you will give a 6-7 minute presentation in front of the class presenting your findings.
