|As we approach the last quarter of the year and students are registering for classes, some teachers are beginning to look forward to next year. This seems natural to wonder what next year holds in store for us. Some predictions are not too tricky. We know the students will be there. We know the papers will be there. Other predictions are a bit more challenging. What will the new IPhone look like? OK, maybe that might not be the most important question; however, it does lead to an important point.
If we project the question of what is waiting for us in education beyond just next year, a world of possible uncertainty opens to us. While there are many things we cannot predict, we are not left completely unaware. In a recent article, one author suggests that there are, in fact, several points about which we can be certain. Beginning with these as a starting point, we can begin to plan for a future education regardless of what the latest shape the IPhone might be.
