A Day Made of Glass – Progressland

progressland

When I first saw A Day Made of Glass about a year ago, I can remember being awestruck by it.  In my last blog, Shades of Grey, I referred to ubiquitous, personal technology and this film, even before I saw Week 2 resources.

In watching the film again, I was reminded  of “Progressland” the General Electric Pavillon at the 1964 World’s Fair. It depicted how electricity would be changing our lives in a home of the future. How thrilling it was to see — and now we just take it for granted!! Hamish MacLeod recently tweeted this story about five innovations that will change how we work, live, interact by IBMhttp://bit.ly/VLmJxl. Hard to imagine now, but what about 30 years from now?

More importantly, as we consider the implications of technology on our future — how will it help us shape our educational institutions of the future.  And for that matter, will they even be institutions?  In EDCMOOC, technology is helping us transcend the walls of our classrooms in order to communicate and collaborate with classmates from all over the world.

What will be important for us to learn and how will we learn it?
