Imagine myself and the society in 2022

Here is my blog post for this fourth section

After watching the vide of Bryan Alexander The Visible College: Four Futures for Higher Education of 1 hour and 30 minutes long、I started to think how our future or our next generation’s education is going to be like.

The requirement for this blogpost was to

Choose one of Alexnader’s four views of higher education in 20122 (this part of begins at the 37th minute of talk) and image how life will be in such a society.Since you will most likely to be finished with university by then、I’d like you to talk about imagined personal and professional life. You will have to build from Alexander’s model how society as a whole might be under the particular future scenario you choose


So to make this blog easier to read I am going to divided into two sections.First、I will talk about how I imagine myself and the second section will be about how I imagine the society involve in this particular change.Well I think is time to mentioning which scenario I chose.

There were four scenerios

1) Phanton Learning

2)The Lost of Decade


4) Reneissance

Which I found most interesting was the Phantom Learning.

Alexander Bryan’s presentation was mainly about the future of 2022.How in 2022 higher education is going to be like with the technology.Also how the society is going to be like.In the four scenarios he depicts positives and negatives views and how technology is going to be used in the next 20 years.

Phantom Learning: Mainly he described two views.fewer schools with distant education and plenty information provided.more online classes and most public schools will tend to be with AR layers

1) Firs I am going to imagine myself in the future of 2022.Most probably I will be graduated by then and have a job.However、for me learning is something is will never end.I imagine myself using computers and sites that I never imagine to be accessible to learn and share my ideas.Keep in touch with people through the social networking is a useful tool for my future.Knowing more people discovering other people’s thoughts and learning how the society and technology is changing will be a challenge for me.I imagine myself participating in online classes or watching other’s people’s presentations online.What I imagine is that students taking higher education do some project work with people from all over the world and share it to the public.Not only their classmates or students can learn but also adults that can learn from it as well.Also、it will be nice to have some online classes for adults that graduated so they can share information and at the same time help and advice students who is preparing to be a working member of the society.As I started to like taking pictures and share it to the public、I also imagine myself using my free time to take pictures and share it to the public.Also using the social media、I can make a group of people that have same interest and do some activities in the weekends.All for me seems so positive and improving communications among people will increase in my prediction.Nowadays I know that we can have access to people’s work but what I mean here、is something more beyond that.You can listen to lectures just like Scott used to do it in the beginning of the semester.Actually this ideas are starting to put on practice and some colleges have introduced them.In my opinion、as the time goes by more colleges will enter and eventually this system of phantom learning will spread all over the world.To conclude this section、for me in the year 2022 will be my opportunity to keep learning more and have access to higher education people’s work more easily and directly.

2) Now my view from the society.With this type of learning higher education students will have the opportunity to go outside classes and do projects.Using navigations and GPS、they even can have an online presentation showing the actual place、something like a documentary.Also if the online libraries become more widespread、more people will have the access to books and articles.Also what I was imagine is that you can even put feedbacks about the book so when other person is going to read to can have an idea of what the book is going to be or can share its opinion.People will become more educated and will use the technology as a educational tool.The society as a whole will be more connected and there will be plenty information about million kinds of topics.Also、creativity among people will increase.Companies can have more online discussions and meetings.Maybe to improve the quality of its product、consumers can take part of the meetings as an audience and share ideas.

All seems really positive、I am not going to say that everything eventually will become through online.But maybe face-to-face interactions between people will decrease.And I think、is this a really good thing? is it really good thing to rely on the technology ?  I have never done online classes、but in the near future I will like to have some、and see the positives and negatives side of it.If this way of learning spreads out and has a positive signs、in my opinion、it will make people’s life much easier and more fun.As I said learning for me continues for ever and the Phantom learning scenario that Alexander Bryan gives is a good way to get involve and continue to learn.As for the higher education in 2022、students will have a harder work as higher creativity and higher knowledge of technology will be needed but that will help the society to improve its education level
