Change in education, from inside the institutions or from outside?
The only unchanging aspect of education is that education is always changing. And change will come from within and from outside, because old institutions are changing and new institutions will try to compete with the old ones.
A more interesting question is: What is essential for an educational institution?
Education is not only defined by the tools and technology but also (and I feel this is more important) by a relationship between teacher and student. In a MOOC students are looking for relations, Facebook groups, connecting to students, using Twitter.
The life sessions in a MOOC are important because of this educational relationship.
The TPACK model does help me to see the interconnectedness of technology and human relations in education.
New technology that fosters human relations in education is the key to a new life for old institutions.
