Beloit College is famous for its Mindset List, which explains to teachers the radically different world view students have, because their assumptions and experience are different. One example from this year’s list: “GM means food that is Genetically Modified”.
I tried to imagine what the list looks like when my daughter starts University.
Some are no-brainers, as they have already occurred:
- A phone call has always involved both video and sound
- A computing device is always touch-enabled
For some others, I may have to go out on a limb:
- Cars have always been self-driving
- House roofs have always been tiled with solar panels
