What will schools be like in 2119?
“Books will soon be obsolete in the public schools. Scholars will be instructed through the eye. It is possible to teach every branch of human knowledge with the motion picture. Our school system will be completely changed inside of ten years.”
Interestingly enough, this quotation was shared six years before Baylor started educating teachers. This was the prediction of Thomas Edison in 1913. Most of the last 100 years, people were suggesting that massive changes were coming to education. Looking ahead to the next 100 years, we really have no idea what schools will be like. However, I am certain about four things that will catalyze education for the common good.
