Sometimes I am consulted by agencies outside my own about adopting “future ready” platforms. While there are many ways to address this issue based on different contexts, I find myself repeating one answer. I tell them to avoid an enterprise learning management system (LMS) like Blackboard. LMS tend to be expensive and their cost will […]

This tweet made me pause for thought and to recall what I think about “the future” of schooling and education. The future is nearer than we think. Are we equipping our students to be #FutureReady? #ictlt2016 — Theresa (@3sachu) February 2, 2016 Individuals and collectives that perpetuate the rhetoric of being “future ready” might […]

Tempting to link the future of anything to technological development. That is what most people seem to do because technologies make things faster, better, or are just plain awesome.      by  colinaut    Since my passion and work lie where the fields of education and technology overlap, that might also be why I am often […]

Like the majority of Singaporeans, I am physically myopic (short-sighted). I cannot see clearly beyond my arm without the help of corrective lenses.      by  haglundc    Some people can barely predict what they will do next week, so how are they going to see the future of education?

Last week, this MindShift article suggested that educators not get caught up with the current narrative in most schooling systems. The narratives that currently play out include systems that do not promote creativity and innovation, rudderless and unsustainable change, and administrative initiatives that do not necessary focus on learners. The article suggested creating a new […]

Recently I jumped on the Carousell bandwagon to get rid of old electronic items. My experiences so far have been overwhelming and positive. When I sold my old iPad Minis, I was inundated with so many messages that I could not keep up. I put the items up for sale at 11pm one evening and […]

I watched the video of Michael Berman sharing his thoughts on the evolution, revolution, and extinction of LMS. He shared his video at his blog. The video is 25 minutes long and done in the style of a talking head, so it took some ploughing through to watch it in one sitting. Berman made a […]

  by  ronWLS    Any forward-thinking organization will want to know if it is future-ready. If it does, I think it is putting its eggs in the wrong basket. To be ready for the future is to imply that you have thought of every contingency and are ready for whatever comes. The only thing certain about the […]
