Five innovations IBM expects will change our world

I wrote Tuesday morning about the potential for innovations in classrooms to elevate modern education. The piece was inspired by IBM’s 5 in 5, a look at innovations the company’s researchers expect will change the world in the next five years. All five areas IBM highlights are really interesting, so I’ve included the related videos here:

Buying local will beat online.

Your DNA will be used to improve your health.

A digital guardian will protect you online.

Smart cities will help you live in them.

Classrooms will be smarter.
