Abstract

The preservice education curriculum at the State University of West Georgia includes an examination of technologies which could transform our society. The College of Education faculty feel that being able to visualize the potential of these technologies for changing education as we know it as critical a skill to educators as using any of today's technologies. This article focuses on five types of technologies that are likely to have a profound, continuing influence on shaping practices in society and education. For each type, examples are given of current and projected applications in education that teachers should include in their vision for tomorrow's schools. These technologies include: voice-activated programs, electronic books, virtual environments, networking options, and wearable computers.
