Week 6: Last Activity

From the research that I have been doing in this, and other, classes, combined with the information that has been presented by the BC government this year, I can actually see the potential for a massive shift in learning in the next 5 years. I imagine that cloud computing will be a big part of this shift, as we see the traditional classroom change and possibly disappear, or become optional. I believe that in many school districts (those that don’t already have them) there will be optional streams which use much of the technology of cloud computing. These technologies will facilitate environments like “learning commons” where students work on their own selected projects with the help of teachers who guide them through.

Five years is a long time though, especially with respect to technology. Who is to say there won’t be another, much more applicable, technology that will surface and offer better options for learning and sharing.
