There have been many conversations about the impact of technology on individual schools, but much less about the impact on entire education systems. To address this, Cisco staged five roundtable discussions in Australia to investigate the opportunities presented by digitization. While technology disruption has been immense, we are in the early stages of even more profound change. The Internet of Things is being thought of as the second-generation Internet, or “Industrial Internet.” If the Internet was about connecting people, IoT is about connecting people to machines and machines to machines. As a consequence, there is likely to be more change in learning in the next five years than there has been since Gutenberg. Why? Because we are at a tipping point where new technologies can engage more students, render learning more relevant, contain costs, and enhance equity.
