A mutant learning system

Ray Kurzweil - presented by Bill Gates as the best man in the world to predict the future of technology, since he has never failed yet - says that, due to the exponencial increase of its speed, during the XXI century, technology evolution will be equivalent to 20 thousand years.

Education? What do you mean?

Developing, testing and implanting any new teaching/learning system will require a lot of time and effort. Things are changing so fast that it's mandatory practicing futuring and creating some scenarios for the near future before start designing new educational systems. Only then it will be possible to analyse what learnig (not educational) systems would be more effective at these new environments. Otherwise they will be born dead.
