Knowledge, Learning, Community

This report (76 page PDF) intends "to help communities build their capacity for transformation of education, advancing toward what our society needs most—a system that works for young people." You can read an introduction at Getting Smart. Probably the most important bit is the definition of 'learner-centered ecosystem' (p. 9) "emphasizing the importance of each learner's agency and enabling them to make meaningful choices about their learning and their contributions to society." It analysis thirteen such ecosystems based on an 'ecosystem readiness framework' (illustrated). Overall, I like the approach, though I would quibble a bit about details of the framework, such as the requirements of a 'shared vision' and 'learning management systems'. More reports from Education Reimagined.
