Facing the future of technology and learning howard college nov 2021

1

Share

In the last decade, innovations like adaptive learning, smartphones, learning analytics, OER, and MOOCs have been chipping away at the corners of traditional education – causing us to teach using more technology. The pandemic accelerated technology adoption, but we still haven’t faced the real crisis in curriculum. The next wave of disruption to higher ed will not come from more technology to incorporate into teaching, but will be caused by the existence of advanced technology in the workforce. The existence of technology like AI will force us to regularly alter the curriculum we teach to keep it relevant to the world around us. This talk provides guidance for changing how we design and assess programs, courses, and modalities of delivery in order to stay relevant as educational institutions.

    Did you know that the average American now looks at their phone 80 times a day?
  • 327 million, approx. 12% below age of 10 and 16% above age of 65. Maybe 277 million who will use a smartphone.

  • In 1804, the world population hit 1 billion people. In 2016 it hit 7 billion (212 years later).
  • Era 1: Growth rates in science 1%
    Era 2: Growth rates in science 2-3%
    Era 3: Growth rates in science 8-9%
  • Forrester projects that 73% of all cubicle-related jobs—think clerical tasks like data entry—will be automated by 2030, equating to over 20 million jobs eliminated.
