If you haven't already done so, would love it if you subscribe and spread the word about our new "Raising Modern Learners" newsletter (http://bit.ly/rml32013) and website specifically aimed at helping parents develop a more contemporary context for thinking about education. Feedback always welcomed.

Another really important analysis by Audrey Watters. What are the questions surrounding data in "connected learning"?

I'm will from New Jersey. Parent, author, former public school educator who's an advocate for changing education in the context of connected, self-organized learning.

I love this bit from Joi Ito:

"Neoteny, one of my favorite words, means the retention of childlike attributions in adulthood. Childlike attributes include learning, idealism, experimentation, wonder, and creativity. In our rapidly changing world, not only do we need to continue to behave more like children - we can teach our children to retain those attributes that will allow them to be the world-changing, innovative adults who will help us reinvent the future."
