Three trends that will shape the future of curriculum

I was reviewing information about curricular trends in education, and I found these three trends towards the curriculum in the future, with which I have a shared vision.

I also loved the message of Margaret Mead: "We are now at a point where we must educate our children in what no one Knew yesterday, and to prepare our schools for what no one knows yet."

Three trends that will shape the future of curriculum


Advances in technology and the rise of the interconnectedness of the world through traditional and digital age technologies will necessitate a change in curriculum for the year 2025. Writing in the KQED blog Mind/Shift, Tina Barseghian (2011, Feb. 4) reports on three trends she has identified that will shape the future of education:

  1. Digital Delivery: With the Internet, teachers and student will move beyond the traditional textbook. This will be in the form of digital delivery through such means as Google apps for education, Kahn academy, TED talks and other digital sources. At right is a TED talk by Mike Matas, highlighting a "next-generation digital book." As augmented reality begins to become more mainstream, "books" such as this may soon become outdated when people can interact more physically with their information.
  2. Interest-driven: The term "student centered" learning is not new, but new technologies allow students to pursue their own interests more easily than before. By allowing each student to pursue his or her passion, educators are seeing that students are more engaged in their own learning. For an example, see the Forest Lake Elementary School in Columbia, South Carolina where technology supports individualized learning.
  3. Skills 2.0: Getting information from the Internet has been likened to getting a sip of water from a fire hydrant. Students must have the skills to "leverage the collective wisdom that thrives on the Internet" by navigating the many sources of information and connectivity available to them.
