21 Things That Will be Obsolete (in Education) in 2020


Inspired by Sandy Speicher’s vision of the designed school day of the future, reader Shelly Blake-Plock shared his own predictions of that ideal day. How close are we to this? The post was written in December 2009, and Blake-Plock says he’s seeing some of these already beginning to come to fruition.

[Update: I asked Blake-Plock to respond to comments to this post. Read it here.]

A couple of surprises:

  • Attendance Offices
  • Lockers
  • Paper
  • Desks

At LearnSmart we’ve already begun the process of taking education from traditional means and putting it in the cloud. An iPad can be used to learn new skills and technologies and eventually these ideas will be used by the Public Education system.
