>your opportunity to change education

>As a learner in a flexible higher education course, you have a unique perspective on the principles of good practice. You also use many technologies in your daily life outside class. Most of your education has kept these separate.

Now I want you to really think about how education would work better in the future with more and better use of technology.

We looked at some future developments and how they might impact society. Think about how these might apply to education and learning.

One of the aspects of education that needs to be changed is determining what has been learned. Tests only confirm that you know a little bit of information – usually facts about the topic. Are there other things that can be measured, assessed or evaluated that would be a better indicator that learning is happening?

You have a lot to contribute to the future of education. The final project is one opportunity to get your ideas out to the world. That’s a bit scary but it is also really exciting. Make the most of it!
