This is what school will be like in 2030
Educational systems around the world will undergo major changes by 2030 brought about by the technological revolution. In the next 15 years, the Internet will turn schools into “interactive environments” that will turn traditional forms of learning upside down and change the way teachers, parents and students arehave.
In the school of the future, master classes will disappear and the teacher will no longer act only as a transmitter of knowledge, but will have as his or her main mission to guide the student through his or her own learning process.
The curriculum will be personalized to the needs of each student and personal and practical skills will be valued more than academic content.
The Internet will be the main source of knowledge, even more so than the school, and English will be consolidated as the global language of instruction. Education will be more expensive and will last a lifetime.
Teachers of the future.
Seven out of ten interviewees think that the role of teachers will be to guide the student through his or her own path of knowledge. They will be facilitators and advisors, rather than transmitters of knowledge. Until very recently, they were the only source of information available, but the internet has taken over and students can find much of what is explained in class on the web. In fact, 43% of those polled say that online content will be the main source of knowledge in 2030, even more than the school (29%), the student body (13%) or cultural institutions (3%).
