Staying on Top
Actually, I don’t remember when TVs were cutting edge because that happened before I was born. But there are those who do remember and are still alive. The point being that everything technological at one time was new and there are things not yet invented that will be new tomorrow. So how do you stay on top of this as an educator?
Can You See Into the Future
The answer is that you need to be listening to the future and be able to anticipate what is coming next. This is no easy task and takes practice to be able to do. And of course is not always right. In other words, you can think you are seeing into the future of education, but you are not.
Give ‘Em What They Want
Don’t worry too much about predicting the future. You just need to be in synch with the times and have an understanding and insight into what your audience wants. Give education to them better than the next guy and you will be fine.
