Students’ Own Interests Will Drive the School Day of the Future

Came across this Mind/Shift article via twitter and though it’s a couple years old it’s worth sharing. Nice to see thinking about our education system catching up with the extensive research in this area.

An excerpt:

I think if many of the innovators I see working in the sector today are successful, we’ll see a school experience that looks significantly different in 2020 than it does today. Technology will play a role, but the key changes will have been in educational approach not technology.

Interest-driven learning, with a focus on projects that are relevant to individual students, will be key.
