Looking back, most things from the 80s seem pretty suboptimal by today’s standards. VHS video was terrible quality. People were smoking on airplanes and in teacher lounges. And mullets, perms, and animal print parachute pants…say no more.
It’s impossible to imagine how 2019 will look in 2049. But today’s status quo is guaranteed to look old, suboptimal and kind of ridiculous. What we are doing now, the way we are living our lives, the way we are delivering education is, possibly, the best we can do at the moment.
But it’s not ideal. There are better ways. The people of tomorrow will live this enhanced experience.
And if we genuinely open ourselves up to possibilities, there’s a chance for us to not only glimpse the future, but to help create it.
