Research (Future of Learning)

When forward-thinking educators talk about the future of learning, they generally accept the idea that tomorrow’s classrooms, students, and teachers will somehow look different than they do today. Good-bye to colossal high schools, good-bye to 52-minute class periods, good-bye to the policy of putting students in classes based on their age. The routines of the present, so the arguments go, shouldn’t restrain our thinking about what comes next
