Dr. Jeff Borden on Education 3.0

Education:: Neuroscience + Learning Psychology + Education Technology = Education 3.0

Session Two      

How do we prepare students today for the kind of work, thinking, and problem solving that they will need in 2020? How do we prepare a workforce that will see more workers remote than at a specific location? How do we help our people, who will work more in teams than as individuals, who will work on more projects at a single time than ever before, and who will interface with technology which is changing at an increasing rate? How do we encourage learning for these skills when our schools are still focused on what was required in industrial-aged work vs. the multi-tasking required today? Schools that are filled with individual projects and where grades trump all else, with instruction doing everything possible to hone concentrated focus, and when the majority of classrooms (K-20) still require students to put away their devices and stop using the web so that they can “learn?” We are dealing with old rules in a new world!
