Nice set of photos illustrating how many of the ideas inherent in online learning are applied in actual schools. Note that you can't just integrate these ideas into existing classes; you have to reimagine what you mean by 'school' before you can even start. "The newest school system in Sweden look more like the hallways of Google or Pixar and less like a brick-and-mortar school you'd typically see. There are collaboration zones, houses-within-houses, and a slew of other features that are designed to foster 'curiosity and creativity.'"
