What will you and your children be doing in: ● 2015 – today ● 2018 – 3 years from now ● 2020 – 5 years from now By 2020, the UK economy will be even more globalised. The transition from fossil fuels to alternative energy will be in full swing. Rapid development in China, India and elsewhere will place huge strain on resources. The gaming generation will be middle-aged – and virtual services will be the basis for many jobs. There will still be real jobs to be had – but you may have to switch careers to find one. http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2010/jan/09/jobs-of-the-futurehttp://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2010/jan/09/jobs-of-the-future ● 2027 - 2014/2015 Kindergarteners Graduate from HS ● 2037 – Class of 2027 10 year reunion/ 5-6 year out of college ● 2047 – 2012/2013 Kindergarteners are in late 30’s to early 40’s. ● 2073 – 2012/13 Kindergarteners are reaching retirement age at 67

2015 Trends in Education College & Career Readiness Testing & Assessment – (Evidenced Based Learning) Stress Management and Self Regulation Blended and Online Learning International Models for Teaching and Learning STEAM Personalized Learning Education has become a Business
2015 Top Trends in Educational Technology http://www.inc.com/aaron-skonnard/5-top-trends-in-education-technology-2015.html http://www.inc.com/aaron-skonnard/5-top-trends-in-education-technology-2015.html Online Corporate Learning - Online corporate learning allows employees in every industry and at any level to experience the power of customized training, 24/7, on any device. Unlike with classroom-based training, learners can train on their own time using customized formats. Alternative Learning Styles – Code School - With Code School, users watch a short video, then stop and practice what they've learned through a series of interactive coding challenges and assessments--all in the browser--before continuing. As learners progress through the challenges, they earn points and badges, which guide each individual's progress and learning. There's also a mobile app so that users can watch and review videos on-the-go to complement the code challenges and online learning. This is the type of new, interactive learning style that you can expect to see much more of in the education segment. Flipped-Learning Tech - A flipped class is a form of blended learning where students watch video lectures outside of class to learn content online, and then do their homework in class with the guidance of teachers in person. This approach helps to engage students outside of the classroom as well as in it. Skills Measurement - intensified focus in 2015 on identifying better ways to assess skills and measure individual progress, competency-based learning. More emphasis on ways to measure and track student learning to guarantee smooth interchanges between each learning experience. Online Competency-Based Training - breaking down learning not by courses or even subject matter, but by competencies, thus releasing learning from the constraints of traditional institutions and methods.
Breath Deep – It has been a rough year with a lot of change for most of us with a theme of promoting effectiveness in the classroom. https://travisburnspage.wordpress.com/2012/11/10/12-funny-videos-about-teaching-and-learning / (4) https://travisburnspage.wordpress.com/2012/11/10/12-funny-videos-about-teaching-and-learning /

Doctors can now run tests that will predict genetic conditions, and soon, parents may be able to choose the sex of their unborn children. With the help of genetic counselors, families can educate themselves on available genetic technologies and options. 3. Organic Food FarmerOrganic Food Farmer ● Organic food currently occupies about 10 percent of the food and beverage market -- and it's only going to increase. As a result, more organic farmers and producers will need to improve organic farming techniques and grow the food. 4.

Planning for the Future Happening NOW California High Speed Rail -2050 America and High Speed Rail System - 2050
World Futurist Society Forecasts for Next 25 Years http://www.wfs.org/forecasts/ http://www.wfs.org/forecasts/ 1.The dust bowls of the twenty-first century will dwarf those seen in the twentieth. Two giant dust bowls are now forming, in Asia and in Africa, due to massive amounts of soil erosion and desertification resulting from overgrazing. 2.Commercial space tourism will grow significantly during the coming decade. By 2021, there will be 13,000 suborbital passengers annually, resulting in $650 million in revenue. Many companies are currently working to make commercial space flight a viable industry, according to Melchor Antuñano, director of the FAA Civil Aerospace Medical Institute. 3.Nanotechnology offers hope for restoring eyesight. Flower-shaped electrodes topped with photodiodes, implanted in blind patients’ eyes, may restore their sight. 4.Robotic earthworms will gobble up our garbage. Much of what we throw away still has value. Metals, petroleum, and other components could get additional use if we extracted them, and robotic earthworms could do that for us. 5.Learning will become more social and game-based, and online social gaming may soon replace textbooks in schools. The idea that students learn more when they are engaged — as they are when playing games — is helping educators embrace new technologies in the classroom. In addition to encouraging collaborations, games also allow students to learn from their mistakes through trial and error. 6.Lunar-based solar power production may be the best way to meet future energy demands. Solar power can be more dependably and inexpensively gathered on the Moon than on Earth. 7.Machine vision will become available in the next 5 to 15 years, with visual range ultimately exceeding that of the human eye. This technology will greatly enhance robotic systems’ capabilities. 8.Advances in fuel cells will enable deep-sea habitation. Fuel cells such as those currently being developed for automobiles will produce electricity directly, with no toxic fumes.
Continued 9.Future buildings may be more responsive to weather fluctuations. “Protocell cladding” that utilizes bioluminescent bacteria or other materials would be applied on building facades to collect water and sunlight, helping to cool the interiors and produce biofuels. 10.The end of identity as we know it? It may become very easy to create a new identity (or many identities) for ourselves. All we will have to do is create new avatars in virtual reality. Those avatars will act on our behalf in real life to conduct such high-level tasks as performing intensive research, posting blog entries and Facebook updates, and managing businesses. The lines between ourselves and our virtual other selves will blur, to the point where most of us will, in essence, have multiple personalities.
