It simply isn't the 20th century anymore!

Professor Stephen Heppell talks disarmingly about the fact that 20th century solutions to 21st century problems just won't do, especially when it comes to new technologies and learning. It's also worth checking out the Dotsub website for all your translating and subtitling needs!

I love the notion of the "death of they and the beginning of us" and its impact on education. Heppell thinks that any kind of National Curriculum is already "laughable" in the 21st century and that schools will need to compete for learners in the very near future because learning will be offered by numerous providers. The main question then seems to be "How do we want to organise our learning?" Quite.

An interesting post. Stephen Heppell, as always makes a great deal of sense. Always pushing at the boundaries and challenging thinking - isn't that what we should all be doing?

I have linked from my blog: so more can 'discover' Creative Tallis.

Thanks for the link Gareth. You make some interesting comments about new school design which are very relevant to us so we'll be keeping an eye on you too.
