A student this morning borrowed my fob to open a classroom door. As she returned it, she said she wished she had one for her front door. One swipe and it would open. It occurred to me later that in her lifetime she will probably have a door on a house that will recognize her presence and let her in automatically.
We do not do enough thinking about what students will need to know for a life that will extend sixty years into the future. I forecast that they will need more ideas and ideals and less computational algorithms.
