* I believe that "school 2.0" as discussed by David Warlick, [keynote speaker from the recent Learngin @ schools conference] is a necessity in our 'switched on' world...
* "personalised learning" - not exactly new, but an ideal concept for today's/tomorrow's learners.

"Not ignorance, but ignorance of ignorance, is the death of knowledge."-- Alfred North Whitehead
* "As schools struggle with the changed circumstances of the world beyond their gates, there has been a growing interest in and use of terms like real, authentic and relevant. In many instances their use in labelling routine classroom practices is more of an instance of wishful naming. That is the name is given to practices that gesture towards something beyond the classroom or may even involve activity that takes students to settings outside school but the design sensibility, the bias, if you like, remains one of doing safe or pretend work."
* “It is, in fact, nothing short of a miracle that the modern methods of instruction have not yet entirely strangled the holy curiosity of inquiry; for this delicate little plant, aside from stimulation, stands mainly in need of freedom; without this it goes to rack and ruin without fail. It is a very grave mistake to think that the engagement of seeing and searching can be promoted by means of coercion and a sense of duty.” --Albert Einstein
