Glad you liked the article. If I were to prepare myself for education in the next decade, I would concentrate on game theory and how to apply it to education. Teaching is going to change, but it will be a slow change. The best educators will be those who read extensively about coming trends and then tailor their teaching to incorporate the best practices from what their research shows. Yes, the best teachers are researchers. They constantly read and try new techniques. Social media will be ubiquitous and as prohibitions on using it in school end, teachers will find they will be in contact with students continuously.
The experts who offer the best professional development to teachers will help teachers prepare individualized professional development plans. These plans will address the subject and developmental level of the students a teacher works will as well as the professional development needs of the teacher.
If teachers don’t take a leadership role in educational change, they will become pawns, more than they already are, of politicians and pundits.
