The Education Change is Coming Faster Than You Think

    If you want a true & in-depth picture of the revolution that computers, the internet and distant learning are bringing to K-12 education, see Stanford’s Prof. Terry Moe’s
    “Liberating Learning: Technology, Politics, and the Future of American Education” (2009).

    Among the many advantages of distant learning, Moe say one will be the demise of the teachers unions. Saints be praised!

    Why are school districts still pushing multi million dollar bond issues to build new schools and facilities? The amount of time school facilities are used are small compared to 365 days a year (and therefore cost). They are not open for customers year round and do not work shifts (probably more family friendly)to use the same space twice.

    Office type tasks (which education is for kids) were one of the first jobs that allowed work from home flexibility.

    Perhaps the internet is finally a way for families to form organizations (combined with homeschooling) to make educators care about their clients. Remember there was a union head that said something to the effect when families unionized, he would care about them.

    Technology is a vast part of education today. As educators it is important for us to prepare students for their future lives; lives in which technology plays a huge part. Teachers should utilize the technology we have today in order to enhance students’ learning.
