Everything that Manifested To help you World-Class Universities Belonging to the Superpowers Belonging to the twentieth 1?
Singapore did something to combat the rise of China and that is why they’re where they’re today. They’ve positioned themselves as an economic center and an academic center, but they’re merely a pimple on the very edge of Asia. Their rise is partly because of the fall of the World Class University 20th century superpowers of the USA, Europe and Japan. If these super powers were not drowning in debt then Singapore would not be as important on earth because it is today. It’s very possible that Shanghai and Singapore would be the leading financial centers on earth very soon.
Before it seems foreign universities flocked to setup in Singapore, but now I believe the flocking is to China. They’ve to flock far from the dying 20th century superpowers to survive. And the sole places to go are the far east, the near east, the middle east, the eastern bloc and a few out of the way places that nobody really wants to go to. Now Russia could be another education center competing with China, or much more likely they’ll be working together.
In the dying 20th century superpowers, universities lived of government funding and government guaranteed student loans. So the price of education kept increasing, and that’s priced them out of the market place. Now if you want an education it is cheaper to leave the dying 20th century superpowers, except Germany, and head to the East. There you can learn the language of the future as well as obtain a degree. And in the event that you play it right you may get a scholarship from their government, or your government as could be the case in NZ.
Then you can remain on and work in among the 21st century superpowers.
Now the greatest change hitting mankind since the printing press or fire for that matter, is going to a university near you. And when it gets there, change could be the word. Will the universities of the 20th century upgrade or downsize, or go extinct to allow for the brand new generation. The generation who’ve been raised in front of a screen, in cyber space. The generation who are able to get what they need at the click of a mouse, or the touch of a screen. Are they planning to go to a physical campus or an electronic campus? Are their internet friends who they’ve never met planning to influence them to go to a virtual campus. Or will their classmates from school drag them off to a real campus. Only time will tell.
MOOCs are an introduction to courses at a real university, but they’re also an introduction to the virtual university world of the future. And they introduce the MOOCers as to the they can do in cyber space. Just how many MOOCers will now attempt an on line university rather than planning to a real campus. The change MOOCs are inflicting on the near future hasn’t got here yet, not surprising they’ve only existed for a couple of years. Let them have time.
Now with the after affects of the 2020 pandemic still with us. Where lots of graduates still haven’t got jobs, maybe the mindset of get into university at any cost is no more relevant. And cost could be the factor and so could be the major. So where can you obtain a first class education at a high price you can afford. Try planning to the East or cyberspace. It’s still cheaper to go to the East now, but that could change as the internet generation comes of age. Also as universities have priced themselves out of the market place and the half-life of what you learn at university is getting shorter, why head to university. All you have to is just a diploma in a specific subject and you can get a job. On top of that get the diploma while you are working. Not four years later and anything from $20,000 to over $100,000 in debt. And when companies accept MOOCs on a CV then education is free, anyway so far.
Peter Legrove is along the way of writing a new book. One of his true other books in education is about teaching your kids to learn using phonics and Montessori sandpaper letters. This book is about MOOCs, what they’re, how to accomplish them, and the consequence they might have on the continuing future of education as we realize it.
