Abstract

For decades people have been promising that technology was going to radically change education. Despite large investment and much research little deep change is evident at most institutions. This paper will argue that it is not enough just to add new technologies to an existing system; we must completely change the system to one built around a set of new technologies and methods. An initial framework for such a system is proposed based around educational approaches that have complementary technologies. The framework is based around five main components: transferable skill development, collaboration, open content, reverse teaching and user-centered design.
