Chris Parry, is the new chief executive of the Independent Schools Council (ISC), and he predicts that children will learn by downloading information directly into their brains within 30 years in a similar way shown in the matrix trilogy.
"Within 30 years, sitting down and learning something will be a thing of the past. I think people will be able to directly access, Matrix-style, all the vocabulary you need for a foreign language, leaving you just to clear up the grammar."
I say "bollocks" and wonder how this clown got the gig?
Parry is a former Rear Admiral who spent three years determining the future strategic context for the military in a senior role at the Ministry of Defence. He is now preparing the ISC's 1 300 private schools, which collectively teach half a million children, for a high-tech future.
