What is the future of teaching? What about education in general? Many schools and universities around the world are playing a risky game right now that could make them irrelevant in the future. They’re simply holding onto past practices and not adapting to the changing world. But don’t take my word for it. Alvaro González-Alorda is a professor of Innovation at ISEM Fashion Business School, associate professor at Instituto de Empresa and a visiting professor in nine other business schools in Spain and America.
Alvaro created a powerful presentation that’s a must see for any educator looking to push his or her school / classroom into the future. He talks about what the leaders of today’s major schools and companies have to say about what academics will look like in the future.
Basically, it’s decision time for schools who have been clinging to best practices from the past and not paying enough attention to future trends. In fact, Alvaro lists more than a few trends to be on the lookout for in terms of education technology. The following presentation is on Slideshare and worth spending the next minute of your day on. You’ll be glad you did.
