Week 4 – The Journey
Week 4 – The Journey
Week 4 focuses on transitional aspects of developing a new way to learn. Our journey into the future of learning is fundamentally impacted by the far-reaching impact of technology in education.
Technology has radically altered the way we live and relate to each other but it hasn’t significantly impacted schools as education continues much the same as decades or centuries ago.
As we develop our projects, it is time for us to factor in how technology can have a positive impact on revolutionizing the way we learn.

Impact of technology on individuals and society
Technology advances and social media have significantly impacted our lives, sometimes in ways that are unfathomable to us. Developing critical insights about the impact of technology and the social and ethical dilemmas that technological developments will bring forth is a fundamental topic to be dealt with at schools. But it is conspicuously absent from curriculum.
Big data, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and virtual reality are a few developments reshaping our world.
