Looking into the Crystal Ball

January 13, 2009 1 min read

It’s appropriate that the ed-tech blog Education Futures is making predictions about the future of education and technology. Education Futures blogger John Moravec details his second annual predictions of what to expect in the coming year. Here’s the short version:

1. No Child Left Behind won’t get left behind … 2. The economic downturn will get much worse before it gets better, but the international impact will be greater than within the U.S. … 3. With limits in available venture capital and new development funds within corporations, technological innovation will slow in the United States … 4. The footprint of open source software will increase, but development will slow down … 5. I’m keeping my money on India, and repeating last year’s prediction: India is the place to be.
