World Federation of UN Associations

In the ‘Millennium Project, World Federation of UN Associations’. The book titled ‘2007 STATE OF THE FUTURE’. Author Jerome C. Glenn and Theodore J. Gordon talks about the Future Possibilities For Education AND Learning By THE Year 2030. Below are some excerpts, followed by i2K’s comments on how dynamind meet these rquirements today. (Page 57)
Sub title: National programs for improving collective intelligence.
CI will become a new buzzword, with major academic institutions using it as a strategic research focus and demonstrating that it is the next logical step in social-technological evolution.

Our comment: i2K’s Universal e-Teacher – Collective intelligence is managed through feature called ZenStar.

Sub title: Just-in-time knowledge and learning
Much of traditional education will be replaced by Web-based, managed learning provided by open source collaboratives or vendors who compete in delivering measurable knowledge acquisition and retention, with speed and effectiveness as the basis of payment. Teachers and students must be part of a team where the teacher is coordinator of information collection.

Our comment: i2K’s Universal e-Teacher – StudyDesk (Students) is fully integrated with WorkDesk (Faculty). Both students and teacher interact with each other, through Dynamind engine, as a team. Universal e-Teacher offers dedicated mentoring program where teacher (facilitator) can assume several roles as coordinator of information collection. Dynamind acts as central intelligence expert system that connects knowledge seekers (learners) and knowledge givers (experts) through its ever growing central intelligent Knowledge gathering system.

Sub title: Individualized education
The convergences of advances in the Internet, cognitive sciences, medicine, artificial intelligence, continuation of Moore’s Law, just-in-time learning, and the success of the $100 laptop will make this more available. If facilitated by mentors, it could be the core of the new educational paradigm. The proper use of IT and “coaching on-line” to address individual learning not only in elementary, secondary, and tertiary education but also of adults for “life-long learning” should be included.

Our comment: i2K’s Universal e-Teacher – Mentoring program on Univeral e-Teacher provides mechanism for “coaching on-line” for individual learning. Entire knowledge exchange is trapped within Dynamind which is used for “life-long learning” for an individual. Hence profile developed, for an individual, at one stage of learning acts as first level feedback for the next stage of learning.

Sub title: E-Teaching
Most of the poorer areas in 2030 as well as the more affluent ones use global outsourcing for e-teachers on-demand. These e-teachers are increasingly artificial constructs using artificial intelligence rather than live humans17.
E-teaching will help education to become more democratic, increase access to more people around the world, reduce financial and environmental costs per student and thus help reduce poverty, popularize science and culture, increase the joy of learning, facilitate the exchange of information among educational institutions, and open new methods of education. It will also lead to customized one-on-one instruction and make knowledge acquisition easier, faster, more individualized, virtual, and globalized.

The live teacher is one of the least efficient and perhaps least effective ways of teaching; artificial constructs will become more and more the norm.

Our comment: i2K’s Universal e-Teacher – One-on-One instruction is one of the three ways in which same course can be accessed by individual learner. Algorithms of artificial intelligence work to provide highly efficient personalized learning (learners) and training (trainers) experience.
