J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, December 3, 2013 6:11 AM

They jury is still out on what schools of the future will consider core knowledge. What is certain is student-centered and relevant learning. More than a simple trend, personalized learning points to better student-teacher relationships and personal knowledge profiles. Technology can do a lot but dialogue and constructivism are here to stay.

Jeroen Boon's curator insight, January 12, 11:34 AM

They fall short, however, when learning moves into informal, networked, technology-enabled arena.
