Designing for Learning: Solutions for the “crisis in ed”

Assumption 1: The future of education is about learning not schooling.   

Assumption 2: Technology is not an end in itself but a means to an end, and that end is better learning.  

Assumption 3: The power of technology to advance learning depends on context of use.  

Now, our three aspirations.

Aspiration 1: We want to be disruptive in our work.  

Aspiration 2: We see our work as taking place on the edges.

Aspiration 3: We want to work with thinkers and doers, makers and movers beyond the “usual suspects.”

This is taken froma response to ‘Waiting for Superman’ on the web site “Startl.org”. It contains some interesting ideas applicable to education reform, not limited to the U.S. either. A good read.
