Learning to Change

Our schools, our approach to education is going to change significantly in the coming years.

It won’t happen fast enough for some people and it will happen to fast for others.

The process of change will be clumsy at times and happen in a mysterious, organic way at times.

We need to be paying attention, preparing, taking steps toward a different future.

Consider this view of the future (some would say now); a link sent to me by fellow board member Rick Hammans:

    A while back I was surfing and found this website for notschool.net. This is a site that supports educational needs for students that are excluded or disengaged from traditional education sources.
    One of the founders Stephen Heppell was one of the speakers on this YouTube post.
    What a great idea, use technology to connect and educate people that have failed in our traditional system.

    This notschool.net does seem like a good idea, Annette, but I cannot find anything about their actual curriculum. Did I miss it on their site?
    I completely agree with you, though, that we need to use technology to connect and educate people. Someday we will see the school model of today used to educate people who cannot learn online and in other ways!
