This is a story set in an elementary school room in 2030 in Luzon City, Philippines. But this classroom could be most anywhere. Here learning is fun, adapted to each child’s needs. It harnesses the power of technology. This is not the only possible future for education. But it is a view of some of the most desirable possibilities. Exploring the future in this way helps us focus on where the education system, a system ripe for change, needs rethinking and redefinition.
Even though this portends the year 2030, it’s really about tomorrow, with some good elements of today, but very little of yesterday.
