"The Biggest Shift of All"

From veteran educator Will Richardson's column "The Biggest Shift of All":

Stephen Downes, a researcher for Canada’s National Research Council, recently wrote, “We need to move beyond the idea that an education is something that is provided for us, and toward the idea that an education is something that we create for us.” Amen. My kids are growing tired of the one-size-fits-all education that we’re providing for them, and so am I, especially now that there’s an increasingly relevant alternative. I’m not saying we just switch on YouTube and let them have at it—not at all. But what I am saying, and what I think Downes is saying, is that the role of schools and our roles as individual leaders and teachers need to change right now.
