The Future of Learning

"Has knowledge become obsolete?" This is one of the many fascinating questions that the folks at Ericsson have prompted, one that is laid out in their new video on the "Networked Society". There are a number of interesting points of inquiry that are examined, carefully led and narrated by a plethora of educators and thinkers. The video is well worth a view.

Here's the tagline: "In a new video, renowned experts and educators explain how learning and education are shifting away from a model based on memorization and repetition toward one that focuses on individual needs and self-expression." Of course, in many respects, a vast majority of these points are questions that the Montessori community has been raising for generations.
