Thinking about what education might look like over the next decade, we quickly realize that technological trends are

leaving many of our students behind.  Today is an era of exponential change. New and constantly improving

technologies appear every day and in every corner of society. Educating the best and brightest in this brave new world

will require a new and improved educational paradigm. Allowing our learning tools to age in the corner of the

classroom would be a mistake that could cost us the future. Throwing mass children out of unfair access ensures that

we will be bored at the bottom of the global fund of employed workers for decades to come. A new set of toolsI was at

an auction a few years ago and noticed a few old woodworking tools that I think I could use. For a few dollars, I

managed to buy an assortment of hand tools that may have been in someone’s box with a generation or more.

As the next decade passed, I used these tools in my shop for a variety of projects until my projects outgrew these old, boring

tools. My woodwork continued to improve, as did my skills and artistry. I quickly discovered that using improved

tools would improve my skills. Woodworking is a wonderful metaphor for the formation and formation of students.

There is simply no good replacement for a sharp tool. If you want to create the best possible projects, you need to use

the best tools. Thinking about the next decade for our country, we will be very disappointed in our projects if we

cannot improve our tools. In this article, I will try to paint a picture of how technology will affect how we teach

students in the next decade. I will try to show the amazing opportunities that lie ahead of us if we just walk through

the door of opportunities open to us. My focus will be on the following idea: Transforming a student from a

passenger to a “user”. You may be wondering what I mean by that. Let me explain. Ask yourself what it means to be a

“user”. A user is not just a person who enjoys. For a student to be a user must provide for the use of the latest

technologies in a free and autonomous manner. This new freedom will allow the student to become an active

participant in his studies instead of a passive passenger. Never in history have we been able to make this so real. In

our modern technological society, being a user also means being tracked. Tracking has become an important part of

our daily lives and it is the engine that should guide our learning process shortly. Tracking a student

means having the ability to target education on strengths and weaknesses. The ability to fine-tune the curriculum to

a particular individual has been a sacred cup of philosophy of education for many years. This golden age of

technological development may soon allow this dream to become a reality. The current curriculum and individual

assessment are arbitrary at best. Accurate assessment of the student is possible only with the help of modern

tracking technologies and databases. How we can make this a reality is readily available and only

need to be removed from the shelf to use. If Congress is looking for a shovel-ready project, it could be one. Imagine a

world where every child has a tablet computer with ready access to a virtual photo storage program (Internet). Next,

imagine that every student can freely access all the knowledge of mankind at any time. Continue to imagine a world

where a word is misspelled instead of automatically corrected. Try to think about what it would mean for a teacher to

have a database of every misspelled word, every misunderstood concept, or every missing equation for each of his

students. Try to imagine a teacher with the ability to customize the experience of an individual “user” with minimal

effort. Imagine that the curriculum is automatically targeted at the user through an intuitive educational platform

that knows every strength and every unique weakness. The company that makes this standard access to the

educational community will be the company that shapes the future of humanity. Will it be Google, Apple, Microsoft, or some other unknown pioneer? Continuing the thoughts in my last post, I would like to talk in more detail about

the idea of a student as a user of a new standardized educational platform. It is obvious to me that the future of

education will always reflect our daily lives in one way or another. If you study how technology has already affected.
