Schools of the future

I’m not sure I know exactly what schools will look like in the future. But I’ve been to Paul Andersen’s science classroom in Bozeman, Montana and think I’ve seen a piece of what’s possible. Paul is flipping his classes and says he’s still learning, trying to understand how to use technology to keep teaching human and personal.  But Paul also told me he knows real learning happens because of the human relationships.

I’m convinced the future is not a choice between a teacher or a computer, but rather a teacher facilitating learning in new ways by allowing every student access to technology. Look to places like Paul’s classroom. Find places where people are asking these kind of questions. That’s where the future will be invented.
