Predicting the Future

Making Sense of Learning and New Technologies

To be a futurist, in pursuit of improving reality, is not to have your face continually turned upstream, waiting for the future to come. To improve reality is to clearly see where you are, and then wonder how to make that better.

Practice Delphi Survey

We will now vote on the educational technologies you have contributed to the Delphi survey.

This models the Delphi survey process you will use for your first assignment, where you decide on a question to be answered by developing a consensus from your experts, providing them with 10 options to choose between. They will vote as we have done, and you will then have a ranked list of the choices you provided your experts, from the one they think best answered your research question, to the worst.
