Now, we can already drill down on any subject thru the internet - from its basic definition to as deep as we want to go. When kids could already wear computers and see their screens from special glasses, they could become generalists or specialists. So, with technology part of our kids' clothing then, would they still need years and years in school? Should they just need to know how to read, write, do basic math and the internet would take it on from there without limits? Continuing education? Definitely, anywhere they would be. Global connectivity and social networking? Sure, even if they would be in a far off farm in Wyoming. What does the future hold for our kids and for education? Already the US is experiencing dramatic growths in online education and home schooling. Saves gas, saves money, flexible time. What's your dig on this?
