Learning From The Extremes

Learning from the Extremes is a white paper funded by Cisco Systems Inc. and written by Charles Leadbeater and Annika Wong.

Excerpt: “The 20th century was the century of the teacher and the school, the class and the exam. The 21st needs to become the century of the educational entrepreneur and of the pupil as protagonist, self-motivated and self-organized learning, at scale, wherever and whenever it is needed.”

An interesting read that I would recommend. If 40+ pages doesn’t really grab you, then perhaps have a look at the 2 page executive summary of the same report.
