What's Coming Up Next?

Another year is coming to an end, and this is just a quick post to let you know what has caught my attention in 2013.

2013 has produced both exciting and quite unglamorous news for education. As always, the discussion tech or no tech permeated the discourse of many schools administrators and teachers.However,the accelerating pace of change has shown that innovation suggests much more than bringing gadgets and new tools into the classroom. What we are witnessing now is the reconfiguration of the classroom and learning environments.

So, in my opinion, what are the top 10 trends in education that we cannot afford to ignore?

1. Big Data;
2. Adaptive Learning
3. Learning Spaces Design as an agent for maximized learning experiences
4. BYOD and Tablet Computing
5. PBL and Tinkering
6. Coding as a second Language
7. Gaming and gamification
9. Wearable Technology in the classroom
10. 3D Printing

These are just a few of the changes that have caught my eye. I´ll be addressing each of the trends in future posts. Please leave comments, and let me know your own view on top trends to watch for.
