Isaac Asimov Imagines Learning in the Digital Age … and Gets It Quite Right (1989)

Now it’s time to see whether Isaac Asimov, another sci-fi legend, possessed the same powers of prescience. ...  [W]e’re highlighting the second part of an interview taped in 1989.

It features Asimov and a younger Bill Moyers talking about education and scientific progress, and it doesn’t take long for Asimov to start describing the revolution in learning we’re seeing unfold today. Imagine a world where computers, internet connections and websites let people learn when they want, wherever they want, and how they want. Suddenly technology democratizes education and empowers people of all ages, and, before too long, “Everyone can have a teacher in the form of access to the gathered knowledge of the human species.”
