The Future of Schools and Schooling

I think we’re going to get to a point where a general curriculum/ syllabus would no longer serve the needs of individual learners no matter how great we are at planning differentiated lessons. I foresee a future where we would have trained AIs to generate individual curriculums and subjects tailored to the needs of each child just by interacting with them and watching them from birth till school-age and graduation. It could be happening right now as I type this because the future is now… 

The current curriculum, in every context, no longer serves to be honest. We are merely repackaging new wine in old wine skins. A disaster is imminent. 

We need a rich, futuristic one-to-one curriculum if we are gonna save the future of the school system. Teacher education and training needs to evolve in a crazy unconventional way. We need to think outside the box (not a cliche) otherwise, this generation would see and have no need for schools as we know it… don’t know if that would be a good thing or a bad thing and to tell the truth, I’d personally love to see that happen 🙈 It’s happening already: the other day I caught my son using the dictation feature to type a text message to his grandma on WhatsApp and that worried me since I’ve been trying to work with him to improve his spellings. Now that he’s discovered a quicker way to do it so what’s the need to spend so much time learning to spell? đŸ€ŠđŸŸ‍♀️ This the generation we’re trying to educate using old methods!!? We’ve got another think coming. 

It’s for reasons like this that I’m so desperate to get into Tech- educational technology to be specific, for educational research purposes. For the future of the school system. So help me God. 

Thanks for stopping by, see you next post!
