Fascinating Pictures from Schools of the Future

There is a lot of very cool tech just on the cusp of going mainstream… Google Glass, Smart Watches and even Driverless Cars. But how is all of this going to impact our classrooms, schools and learning? What benefits and what challenges will these new technologies create?

Well, to try and imagine just how it may come together, here are eight pictures of what it might look like in schools of the future.

  1. This is brilliant! Most of the images are based on rising areas of elearning which makes it even more plausible. Which one do you think is most likely to happen? Number 7 seems a bit far-fetched…

    1. Thanks Andrea! Yes, #7 is a bit of a push… In fact, we’d hope any ‘driverless’ buses look a bit more modern than that!

      1. Either way I wouldn’t trust my future kids in a driverless car! Do you think parents of the future would?

      2. Yeah. It’s a bit terrifying. I guess once upon a time they had the same thoughts about planes though :)

      3. This is true. I am scheduling it to be shared on our ExamTime social media channels. Can you let Nick know I sent him a suggestion for your blog?
