“A Much Different Time for Learning”

My inspiration for this blog came partially from Will Richardson’s book Why School?: How Education Must Change When Information and Learning Are Everywhere. He’s looking for a more meaningful way to define school in a time where we have gone from a world of information “scarcity” to a “world of abundance.” In this world everyone can be a journalist and everyone can speak a new language. The question remains. What’s the point of going to school to learn these things if you can get them off the internet when and where you want them?

You can read more about Will and his ideas about education in a rapidly-changing world here.
