There are many folks prognosticating about the future of education each with a different slant. I've enjoyed over the past month reading Education Futures blog. John Moravec's blog is a great source for getting a feel of the landscape of accelerated change.
A recent post by Education Futures for instance decontructs the future world from the mind of Bill Gates that never was. Just because someone - especially an influential individual - says a future will happen, doesn't mean it will...which makes futures thinking that much more fun.
