Actually, …um, no, it won't—at least based on prior experience. Radio, motion pictures, TV, "Educational" TV, the personal computer, the Internet, YouTube, and MOOCs were all supposed to spawn drastic changes in the way individuals learn in school.
However, it turns out these transformations never really happened. People basically learn the same way as they did a hundred years ago. At least that's the view offered in this brief video from ScienceAlert.
If correct, this will be bad news for robots, code warriors, hucksters, flim-flam artists, and the vast multitude of cottage industries that have attached themselves to the educational technology complex. Okay, the ETC doesn't exist.
Please have a look at the presentation, as it's very commonsensical and easily understood. In our society, such a view seems almost sacrilegious.
One point the narrator makes is that learning is largely social rather than solitary. We learn from each other! Who knew? And get this: It's all about the brain. Brains!
From the introduction:
But while all of these advancements have clearly revolutionised other areas of society—entertainment, for example—the truth is that we pretty much learn in the same way we did a century ago.
And Derek Muller from Veritasium believes that it won’t change anytime soon. Why? Because the real limit to learning is the stuff that happens inside a student’s head. That’s where the real revolution needs to happen, but we still don't know much about what goes on in there.
Derek explains that although there's plenty of research into which types of technology are more effective, there’s very little work being done on which experiences and technologies promote the thinking required for learning.
And the research that's out there shows that learning is socially motivated, which isn’t something we can replicate through better technology—yet, anyway.
