The Lost Decade
After watching The Visible College: Four Futures for Higher Education What caught my attention out of the four possible futures I thought that alt.residential caught my attention the most.
This section talks of future where education is learned online. Classroom learning becomes rare and everything can be learning in their room. Imagining a life in this kind of society is so crazy because interaction for me especially at the young age is through school. Without this i personally think that the human actions will change. First of all interaction of people overall will drop substantially. People can learn what they want to learn so people who specialized skills will be much more higher. I think that Fashion and television will dissapear in this future is because these two are closely related with the interaction between humans.
My life would totally be different from now. I would not know the friends I know now but “online” friends that i interacted from gaming. What people call manner might dissapear because of the less interaction and the idea of belonging in a group becomes something of a distant memory. If i were to have a kid the kid would not talk to me but only online. Life would be in my opinion a mess and this futuristic idea would not work and if it were would change the whole human race and its thinking habits.
