What Comes After The Information Age?

by TeachThought Staff

There are a lot of labels that describe the ethos and characteristics of certain times in history.

The Dark Ages.

The Renaissance.

The Age of Enlightenment.

Most recently, we’ve browsed, texted, and Google’d our way through the Information Age. What comes next, and when does it start?

Further, what causes the movement from one epoch to another, and how does that change once technology is not just a catalyst, but the foundation for social interactions?

Those are questions best left those who’ve had more coffee than we have. The troubling bit is that we won’t know what sticks until–well, we’ll never know because we’ll all be dead. For now, we can consider the following list from listly user–and head honcho–Nick Kellet.

The list contains not just nominations, but background reading for each suggestion as well. As we consider how to teach the Google Generation, it makes sense to think about what’s coming next, yes?
