vision is of a new world of learning, a place where students and
parents, teachers and administrators, policy makers and the people they
serve are all empowered to change education for the better; a place
where schools provide rigorous project-based learning, social-emotional
learning, and access to new technology; a place where innovation is the
rule, not the exception; a place where students become lifelong learners and develop 21st-century skills, especially in information literacy so they can:
- find, assess, and use information effectively and creatively
- work cooperatively and constructively with others
- use their strengths and talents to become empowered, productive citizens in our democratic society and the world at large.
It’s a place of inspiration and aspiration based on the urgent belief
that improving education is the key to the survival of the human race.
We call this place Edutopia, and we provide not just the vision for this
new world of learning but the real-world information and community
connections to make it a reality.
audience includes educators, parents, school board members, university
faculty, community-based organizations, and the business community --
all groups working to create better schools for the twenty-first
