In Karl Fisch video “2020 Vision,” what matters is that there will be a great increase in education through technology throughout our lives and into the future because that is what is most convenient to our world. Mr. Fisch’s other video, “Did You Know” talks about how different our world will be in the near future and that is what this “2020 Vision” is saying as well. Instead of just saying the future will be different though, this video actually predicts what is going to happen.. The majority of the predictions he made were something to do with google and how it grew. Google will become a major part of education and replace the normal lectures and homework that we have now. He also predicts that Google will actually create an online university. Is google going to know everything detail about every person? How would that help our society? Technology is going to become the way of education in the future, which we already see a little bit of now. Technology is increasing every year in schools. Such as more kids are bringing their laptops to school or, more teachers are using blogs, or moodle as homework assignments. Power Point presentations and Smart Boards have already taken place of most traditional lectures. All this shows is that technology is taking over education. Throughout our lives and into the future technology will completely envelope education and make our lives much easier and faster.
