Jeopardy may just go away-the next generation may find it silly that our generation memorized facts! Much like voicemail, answering machines and other technology that is disapperaing with new expectations.

We can only dream!!! I often wonder how our brains will change now that learning is so different we don't rely on memorizing to show we are smart we rely on google. 

Makes me wonder how long it will be till we see the first Jeopardy contestant with brain linked into Google ...

We can only dream!!! I often wonder how our brains will change now that learning is so different we don't rely on memorizing to show we are smart we rely on google. Will our brains rewire and think more creatively, intuitively it will be interesting to see as we evolve in the generation of smart devices and immediate information?

If only that neural-AI brain interface could make those Maserati kids (and their parents) more intelligent or even better students. From there, it's not hard to imagine a reality series like "Keeping Up with the DeGrasse Tysons" replacing the Kardashian franchise for good.

Michelle speculates that "Future students may well have an all together new experience compared to past generations."

Possibly so. But I wonder if the kids whose families could afford only the $99.99 Chevy version of a neural-AI brain interface will be at a disadvantage vs. kids with the $1,999.99 Maserati version ...

I tend to have a similar outlook on the life of future kids. I do hope they're given plenty of opportunity to fail and build character. I hope they still get to have fun and learn how to interact with others. Learning the importance of hard work and how to handle failure are critical (as is fun).

While I would never argue against all of the opportunities that kids have today nor will have in the future.  I hope in the future kids will still get to enjoy being a kid. I hope kids will still have tree houses, play house and know the feeling of a called third strike !

I have a feeling most kids will find a way to be a kid while they are playing with the new toys of the future.   At least I hope so because if not society will have moved further in the realm of AI than it ever imagined.

This paradox is probably already happening to kids but the distance between the human experiences of winning and losing will not "burn character" as much as it had when we were growing up.  

I think these types of experiences are important to development of well-rounded individuals and eventual contributors to Society.

Very interesting!! Future students may well have an all together new experience compared to past generations.

My kids are taking dual credit courses along with the other advanced courses. They have many more opportunities than I had at the same age. 

Evidently what are coming down the pike are amazing advances in neurobiology and the inteface of human brain function with AI. Elon Musk seems particularly fond of pursuing the latter and has a project underway with that goal.

So imagine students maybe a few decades from now competing in soelling bees and chess tournaments and tests and essay competitions (if there still are such things) with their brains interfaced with AI. Opens up lots of possibilities ...

Would make even current students seem like they're cognitively challenged ...

Indeed. My kids are taking dual credit courses along with the other advanced courses. They have many more opportunities than I had at the same age.
