Normally I'm not impressed by the posts on Getting Smart, but this one captures three meta-aspects of future learning that seem right to me: equity, stident-centered learning, and real-world learning. Transforming that set of expectations into pedagogy and infrastructure is another matter, however. The article highlights a number of initiatitives, some of which at first glance seem to merit a closer look: Creative Reaction Lab in St. Louis, Careerwise in Colorado, and Paul Quinn College in Dallas (some of the others seemed more sketchy to me, so don't take any of this as an endorsement). The article summarizes a foundation-supported conference called Rethink ED.
