Many, many things in this world are changing, but the need for education is as strong ever. We’ve taken a look at the history of the education system, at key roles in education, and more. In this module, we will begin by taking a look at brick-and-mortar education, the kind of school we see on TV. We’ll explore how traditional education is changing thanks to the technological revolution—the introduction of new and emerging forms of technology. Next, we’ll take a deep dive into those technological advances, and specifically how technology is advancing education and distance learning. Education is successful when students are exposed to many different learning modalities. In the third section, we will study several different modalities and how they might affect the education of the future. Technology isn’t foolproof. Anyone who’s Wi-Fi has dropped in the middle of a Netflix binge, or who can’t get service to text in a rural area knows this to be true! The same is true for education technology. We’ll discuss the possible risks of relying on technology for our education needs. Lastly, we’ll explore distance learning and its global impact by looking at several countries use of distance learning, and its impact.
