The next 25 years: The Futurist

The Futurist presents an interesting set of predictions for the next 25 years.

Many involve science and technology, from organ printing to space travel.  Climate change appears, as do responses to energy problems.

One concerns education:

Learning will become more social and game-based, and online social gaming may soon replace textbooks in schools. The idea that students learn more when they are engaged — as they are when playing games — is helping educators embrace new technologies in the classroom. In addition to encouraging collaborations, games also allow students to learn from their mistakes through trial and error.
