This could be a possible design for a school desk in 2030. Tatty old wooden school desks covered in gum and graffiti will be a thing of the past with this new interactive desk for schools. It can be used as a computer for one person or a big screen for lots to work on. The project was led by Dr Liz Burd, she suggested that the new technology could mean the end of books in the classroom.


Students in 2030 wouldn’t even need to go to school every day! Instead they could just flick a switch and appear at school as a hologram. Imagine a whole class filled with holograms, including the teacher. Students could be in England but attending a class in the USA filled with people from all over the world.
Nowadays holograms work by having a camera filming the person from every angle but in 2030 there would properly be an easier way to become a hologram.

In this clip it shows you another possible way to be taught in 2030, by using a computer. But we would'nt necessarily have to go to a school to use the computer, instead we could use one at home and just log on whenever we fell like it. we would still have to have at least a 6 hour school day but instead of starting at 8.30 am and ending at 3.20 pm we could log on at 10.00 am and end at 5.00 pm. it would be great for students who also have a job because they can slot in their school hours so it fits with when they need to work. The downside would be is that we won’t get to meet people our age, or listen to their opinions.
