"Irvine, CA, August 21, 2005. NetDay, (www.netday.org), the national education technology nonprofit group, today announced the release of Visions 2020.2: Student Views on Transforming Education and Training Through Advanced Technologies, a report developed in partnership with the U.S. Department of Education and the U.S. Department of Commerce."
I haven't worked my way through this yet but I did think that these highlights were interesting:
"Visions 2020.2 identifies four major themes on how students envision future learning technologies.
- Digital Devices, particularly small, voice activated multifunctional devices.
- Access to Computers and the Internet, with each student having a computer with high speed, wireless Internet access for his or her own use in school and at home.
- Intelligent Tutor/Helper providing help with homework, particularly mathematics, as well as access to a single, all knowing information resource.
- Ways to Learn and Complete School Work Using Technology, including interest in learning games, virtual world experiences, on line classes, doing school work on the computer or on line, digital teachers, e books, and personalized learning. "
