There are a couple of more I might add to the list, but it is still a great group of educators and thinkers. Others I would consider are John Dewey, Maria Montessori, Paulo Freire, and Alfred North Whitehead.  Even with those nine, the list is likely incomplete.

Sculptors hid the rabbit after being rushed and forbidden to sign their statue. But similar jokes played by some of the greatest artists who ever lived were vicious in comparison

‘The Spear’ reappears | PBHS Media Centre | Scoop.it

Roughly a year later, The Spear has reappeared, this time within the (relative) safety of the covers of a book. It may not raise the same uproar, but it still raises all the same questions – and perhaps a few more.

Getty Publications just announced the launch of its Virtual Library, where readers can freely browse and download over 250 art books from the publisher’s backlist catalogue. Readers can view extensively researched exhibition catalogues from the J. Paul Getty Museum, including Paul Cézanne’s late-life watercolours (Cézanne in the Studio: Still Life in Watercolors, 2004), as well as the woefully underappreciated Flemish illustrations of the 15th and 16th centuries (Illuminating the Renaissance: The Triumph of Flemish Manuscript, 2003).

You might also want to check out the pdf "Recombinant Education: Regenerating the Future of Learning." The 14 page document states

"This forecast previews five disruptions that will reshape learning over the next decade. Responding to them with creativity rather than fear will be critical to preparing all learners for an uncertain future."

This publication with the infographic provides much food for thought as we education continues to shift into new areas. Use this link to download:

So, the future of Learning is "radically personalized" whereby everyone learns where, when, and how they want, about whatever they want to learn about. I'm skeptical to say the least.

Christina Chavez-Reyes's curator insight, September 18, 2014 2:02 AM

Here's one way in which learning in a knowledge society may happen. Do you see glimmers of this reality emerging? How might it effect what college should be doing for you? Something to think about.
