ericsson: connect to learn
education: the only real path to change
Corporate promotion from Ericsson, of course, but no less powerful of a story. Creating opportunities for students to learn is the most sustainable and powerful agent of change.
EMPOWER KIDS THROUGH OPPORTUNITY
Access to the internet is growing by the day. We have to harness that power to turn kids loose. Rather than being overly prescriptive with their learning, why don't we focus on providing kids with the bigs ideas to explore?
We can't use the "we don't have the tools" crutch anymore. How creative and diligent are you willing to get to improve access for your students? Exploration is not synonymous with "free for all". It is about setting big targets, open questions, big ideas and values, THEN letting the kids find ways to define and represent them.
