"The death of education and the birth of learning"

“The death of education and the birth of learning” –  a memorable and challenging quote to end this excellent and thought-provoking video from Consortium for School Networking(COSN).



This video is a couple of years old now, but still a very relevant statement about challenging our traditional notions of education and the prevalence of “bricks & mortar” entities in education. I wonder if education wuld still rank 55 out of 55 industries. I am hoping that we can at least claim to have outgunned “coal mining” by now!
At my current school we are investigating the development of an “online college” to deliver AP courses both as part of a hybrid solution for our on-site students, and also to reach out to the wider community here in Hong Kong and eventually across SE Asia. It really presents some challenges to our current concept of our “school”!


Exciting times. 
Scary times.
