Life is an amazing learning space, actually the only one. School should be an accelerator rather than a compliance creating space with boundaries. There some early steps around the world in this direction already.
Which ones have you come across?
My most impressive example (which I have seen in practice) is Team Academy, Jyväskyla, Finland, and the other emerging is Singularity University founded by Peter Diamandis & Ray Kurzweil which led to BlueFuture2012 and my personal deep involvement in bringing "Abundance - The Future is Better Than You Think" into awareness in order to collectively learn on how to shape the future together using the emerging information technology that is reaching the corporate, as well as the educational space.
Happy Easter, and enjoy Peter's talk
