Today’s obsession with MOOCs is a reminder of the old forecasting paradigm: in the early stages of technology introduction we try to fit new technologies into existing social structures in ways that have become familiar to us.”
– Marina Gorbis

We need a curriculum of big questions, examinations where children can talk, share and use the Internet, and new, peer assessment systems. We need a pedagogy free from fear and focused on the magic of children’s innate quest for information and understanding.
