How will school (and everything else) work in the year 2000?

Now listen up children, as I pour some books into the hopper and have them tell you a story of our lives in France 100 years from now. And sit still, because artist Jean-Marc Côté is going to make postcards for people to look at 120 years from now, when they will judge them for their accuracy or laugh at them for their silliness.

In 2015, your classroom will be called a MOOC, where just like this vision, information will be transmitted electronically to students everywhere.
