It's nice to get an update of what Will Richardson and Bruce Dixon are up to these days. Still focused on schools, Richardson and Dixon have "catalogued the ingredients they believe are necessary to make the kind of change they hope all districts will embrace in a white paper" (21 page PDF). " it is the modern learner’s newfound capability to take full control of his or her learning that is THE educational shift of our times," they write. "Create a vision for classrooms where innovation and inquiry are at the core instead of at the edges. Make time for regular discussions on what changes are happening, and reflect on how to make new systems and practices in school more sustainable."
