TEDxASB - Bruce Dixon - 2/25/10

Topic: A School for Everyone Description: For all that we know about school transformation, and innovation in education so little seems to have been realized; at least on any scale. While we are incrementally exploring new possibilities for what school could be through the use of technology in schools around the developed world, we seem comfortable with our progresseven though a rapidly increasing amount of evidence suggests we are failing to meet the needs of too many young people within our existing institutions. What if, for a moment we thought, not just what school could be, but rather what it should be? What if we decided that our priority in exploring the opportunity afforded to us by technology would be directed at those areas of most need; what if we decided that rather than trying to tinker, we would truly transform. What would school look like then? In this talk, Bruce explores the possibility that what we already know about learning combined with emerging technologies might allow us to truly create A School for Everyone; that what has limited this possibility has not been a lack of capacity or funding, but our legacy perspective, and that what might be possible, might indeed allow us to meet one of societys most challenging goalseducation for all.
