Author, Cartoonist and Discovery Fellow Lynda Barry has leads class on cartooning and writing techniques to help children and adults begin to put their ideas on the page. This time around, she spent some time talking to people of all ages to envision the future of Education. Now, even if the ideas discussed aren't the most "serious," it certainly raises many questions I have about the future of education as well. What will be different about the appearance, purpose, atmosphere and community of the school campus 100 years from now? What will last through the century and prove itself to be of enduring value? When I try to envision the future of education, I find it to be incredibly difficult: the ways schools have been changing in the last two decades make it nearly impossible to think of how schools will persist. We are seeing advances in technology, sure, but test levels, funding, and the number of schools continues to be a big problem. Because I can't envision a solution to this problem, I find it difficult to think 10 years, let alone 100 years into the future. In an ideal world, we will have great technology, a real teacher in every room, and innovative projects for every student. Will we see this? I somehow doubt it. What do you think?
