Targeted for college professors of all academic fields and disciplines, this paper describes why and how college education is evolving in the next twenty years. Updated research includes addressing issues such as the latest technological tools available to educators, the mind-set of the modern student, contemporary learning theories, and new teaching methods to implement and engage the student of the future. The paper begins with a justification of the importance of the transition we face, followed by a description of some of the most useful technologies for college classrooms. Since students today and those going forward have never known a world without the Internet and many other readily available technologies, professors must comprehend the attitudes and realities of the modern student. Traditional learning theories are being replaced or updated, and the ways we implement these new learning tools and ideas are addressed.
