Summary

Learners can now learn almost anything they want, any time they want, any where they are, with whomever they can find...except in school. Current practices in classrooms are not built on our fundamental beliefs around how kids learn, nor are they informed by the new, modern contexts that the Web and the technologies that drive it have created in all aspects of our lives. Without a profound re-imagination of the roles of schools, classrooms and teachers, one that honors both the conditions required for deep and powerful learning and the skills, literacies and dispositions required to thrive in the modern world, "school" as we know it will quickly fall into irrelevance.
