The Future of the Web, and the Implications for Education

Though we here at ODT pride ourselves on being very current, we still want to take a moment and re-examine Pranav Mistry's vision of the internet's future. He calls it the SixthSense.

Some of you have seen this speech before; he delivered it at TED a few months back and the video quickly spread across the internet. Regardless, it's totally fascinating and worth another look.

Issues that we're keen on:

-If this vision were to be realized how might it revolutionize online education?

-Will people really be able to get college degrees from the back of their hands?

-Are there vocational skills one can develop today to people to work with such technologies in the future? And if so, what should someone study and where?

-Will this fundamentally alter the concept of the "office" as we know it. If workers no longer need to sit in front of computers to execute work-related tasks, what new frontiers of physical activity will become visible?

-How long until this technology is distributed broadly?

Have a look and let us know what you think.

We envision a today when teachers will have such technology at their disposal, in the classroom. Students will benefit from access to resources in new and invigorating ways.
