Children will learn by downloading information directly into their brains within 30 years, the head of Britain’s top private schools organisation has predicted.
Chris Parry, the new chief executive of the Independent Schools Council, said “Matrix-style” technology would render traditional lessons obsolete.
He told the Times Educational Supplement: “It’s a very short route from wireless technology to actually getting the electrical connections in your brain to absorb that knowledge.”
Mr Parry, a former Rear Admiral, spent three years determining the future strategic context for the military in a senior role at the Ministry of Defence.
I’ve been joking about this for years, but it’s somewhat shocking to see it in print! It’s also a little creepy that Mr. Parry worked with the military where perhaps he saw some research in this regard.
In 30 years Pluto will be in Aquarius, and I have no doubt that technology (Aquarius) will have evolved by then to the point where Pluto can wreak some real havoc!!
