A World Where Grades Will Be Left Behind

In a USA today article written by Mary Beth Marklien, discuss education in the next thirty years. She touch base on Sebastian Thrun, a Google vice president and Stanford research professor best know for his role in building Google's driverless car. He founded Udacity, a developed catalog of free online courses taught by star professors from around the world. "You want learning to be as much fun as it is to play a video game" says Thrun. He do not know how education will be in the future, but he's does know that it will be at the top of the line with the use of technology. Students will not have to worry about being on time for class, given a grade, and the lesson will be free. Teacher will not have to worry about oversize classrooms. They only thing the students will have to worry about is the time and place. Thrun want education to reach everyone and everywhere without closing down the schools. His vision of education and the future sums up to "a message of hope of aspiration not destruction". I know that education is important, but what we use and how teach it is more important. Going to a college and paying for my education, which can be cheaper then a cell phone, can be very helpful to me in the future. Knowing I can get an education and its not costing me much, can be a   good idea to anybody that is in school. Technology is taking over the world day by day. It's future lies in the hands of our future generation.
