AtnMyStudents: What Will School Look Like in 10 Years? - NYT [PIC] [AUD]

In one of my posts from last week or so, I wrote that in 1910 French artist Villemard envisioned the future in a set of postcards.  Part of that vision included his views of education in the year 2000.  See the image below. How accurate was his prediction?

"At School"

Villemard also had some visions of other media technologies in the year 2000.

On the New York Times web site, some noted education experts recently predicted what schools will look like in 10 years.  For example, "The advent of digital tools will have an impact on education that will rival that of the printing press..."

How accurate are these predictions?
