Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s curator insight, December 29, 2012 6:58 PM

I agree and would go farther that ALL "Brick and Mortar" institutions have to adjust to be functional in the 21st Century. The traditional educational enviroment is no longer tradtional...Universities in Asia have started to adjust to this aspect. A four year education was not only what you learned for your future career but how to get along with other people from other cultures. Therefore, schools will have to rethink all aspects of the "brick and Mortar" schools.
