This video was made in 1989 – a high school student’s vision of what school would be like 30 years down the road. Well, here we are 18 years later. What did he get right? What did he miss? I look at this video and see project-based learning, multimedia, content management systems, distance learning, student collaboration… but no teachers!
What an interesting exercise for students in today’s classrooms: Ask them to describe the classroom of the future. I think that would tell us a lot about what students find exciting – and lacking – in the classrooms where they are learning today.
