"The real revolution in learning is not
about adding technology on top of the
current structure of school. Instead, the
real revolution is about a transformational
shift of control from the school system to
the learner."


New
collaborative

computer technologies, in
particular the read/write web, distance learning
programs, free and open source software, and
videoconferencing.


The move from an industrial to information
economy, and a change in skills that are valuable
to employers.


A culture that is rapidly becoming more
transparent and collaborative because of the
new technologies, allowing a more open
discussion about many aspects of our society,
including (and especially) education.
