Abstract

Attempting to predict the future provides targets against which others may compare their thoughts. It might also stimulate efforts that either facilitate or inhibit possible futures implied by the predictions. As technology plays a larger role in education, any predictions concerning the future of education must include an analysis of technological trends. The purpose of this paper is to analyze the trends in technology and how they relate to education, and then to extrapolate these trends in an attempt to predict the future of technology and education. This paper examines how the trends of Moore's Law, Metcalfe's Law, technology fusion, and a changing world economy are redefining the way today's students need to be taught.
