A computer for every child in school can change everything Educating "digital natives" for the challenges of a diverse society
Posted on 02/12/2015
The future of education is discussed and debated ad infinitum in countless journals and blogs. I had an opportunity to discover the school of the future last week on one of my photography adventures. This school system has literally made computers and tablets available for every student K-12. Every classroom is equipped with an ActivBoard, an electronic whiteboard designed to deliver and record instruction. The most amazing part of this school's educational innovation is not the technology or devices – it is how educators have orchestrated the use of technology to enable both the students and the community to learn how to learn what is required to adapt a diverse digital world. So, where is this amazing school of the future … New York City, Cupertino, Seattle? The answer may surprise you.   more
