The next revolution in education will couple far more advanced computational technologies with far deeper knowledge about human cognition, including dramatically more effective constructivist and active instructional strategies. The impact of such a revolution will encompass not only new modes of learning and pedagogy, but new organizational systems for education. In particular, advances in computing research stand to achieve open access of global educational resources and the reuse, repurposing, and sharing of such resources.


Technologies such as user models, mobile tools, networking tools, serious games, intelligent environments, educational data mining, and rich interfaces—collectively—will help us personalize education, assess student learning, support social learning, diminish boundaries, develop alternative teaching strategies, enhance the role of many different stakeholders, and address policy changes.
