Doha Reflections

Alan Levine, CogDogBlog, Nov 23, 2009

An unusual event took place in Doha, Qatar, this week, a sort of "Davos of Education" as about 1000 educators, business people, and others were whisked to the Middle-eastern venue for three days of talks and presentation of an action agenda at the World Innovation Summit in Education (WISE). I think I would have been pretty unhappy with the event and I sense some lingering scepticism from Alan Levine in this summary, tempered with an admiration for the many educational projects around the world. I must confess, if I were at Davos, I would be rather more comfortable being with the protesters outside the building. Just saying.
