After Ed is a new web-based video channel produced by the EdLab at Teachers College, Columbia University. Official launch date is Wednesday, January 23. After Ed promises to offer “news, documentary and editorial segments focused on the future of learning.” New content will be published weekly, including news, documentary, and editorial segments. The journal, Teachers College Record, will partner with After Ed to highlight new video content.
The future of education is subject to a set of conditions quite different from those governing education for the past century, says Gary J. Natriello, Ruth L. Gottesman Professor in in Education Research. Post-industrial education is subject to “changes in the volume, growth, and distribution of knowledge, changes in the communications infrastructure that make knowledge a pivotal element in global exchange processes, and new understandings of individual and group learning processes,” he says.
