Future Classrooms

A look in to the future

Classroom= Ever Changing

Have you ever wondered what your classroom will look like in 5 years? Will books be replaced by then or will that take 10 years. I found a website that caught my eye as i was searching for information to post for this project. edudemic.com Has so much information on it and the video that is posted below shows what is happening and is hoped to achieve in the classrooms of today and the future.
Bridging Our Future, envisioned by Intel

Imagine in 5 years....

In 5 years we hope to have the majority of every school one to one with iPads or some type of tablet. As Kevin Huneycutt said in multiple posts on his blog, but in not so many words, technology is the future of schools.
"The digital push here aims to go far beyond gadgets to transform the very nature of the classroom, turning the teacher into a guide instead of a lecturer, wandering among students who learn at their own pace on Internet-connected devices."
Teachers' jobs are changing we do not simply instruct we facilitate.

In 10 Years

Do any of the above pictures look like they can be what our classrooms will look like in 10 years?
Are they going to move forward or are they going to digress. According to Matt Ritchel's article in the New York times "schools are spending billions on technology, even as they cut budgets and lay off teachers, with little proof that this approach is improving basic learning." Does this mean that books like most think will not be distinct in ten years. Or will we continue you to move forward?
