Since the 1960s, American education has anticipated the arrival of what Eric Ashby termed the Fourth Revolution — a dramatic change to higher education based on the transformative power of information technology. Despite its promise, the past half-century has seen very little in the way of sustained change, making the idea of an educational revolution continue to seem remote.

Recent developments in consumer media, mobile technology, and ubiquitous broadband continue to suggest dramatic change is imminent, but while most institutions envision digital futures as part of their five year plans, few institutions have plans for making next year significantly different from last year.

One promising vector for massive change can be seen in the rise of MOOCs and Flipped classrooms as platforms for “rock star teachers” — teachers who embrace technology to dramatically increase the scale of their educational influence. From Salman Khan to Peter Norvig, there is a rising tide of educators who are reaching out beyond the boundaries of traditional classrooms, using technology to reach tens of thousands, even millions of students around the world.

 

Adrian Sannier was recently named one of the “12 Tech Innovators Who Are Tranforming Campuses” in The Chronicle of Higher Education. He served as the CIO at Arizona State University and has been a professor of computer science for the past 12 years.
