I think that education will slowly evolve from rote memorization to problem solving, idea discussion, and understanding. If I want to know what year the Battle of Waterloo was, all I have to do is spend 5 seconds on Google. If I want to know why the Battle of Waterloo was fought, I have to do a lot more research, and it isn't something I can learn in 5 seconds. I see most education, particularly grade school, as learning the date of the battles, and that of the second type as fairly rare, but the ideal that I hope we have in the future.
