I missed last week’s bootcamp–which looks very interesting and am sorry that I did.

Relatedly, I ran across a paper published by Aspen Institute on “POWER-CURVE SOCIETY: The Future of Innovation, Opportunity and Social Equity in the Emerging Networked Economy“*

It’s always dangerous to quote things without *fully* reading them, but this part of the summary paper struck me. Joi Ito, head of MIT Media Lab, offered these principles for education reform.

  • Resilience over strength.
  • Pull over push.
  • Risk over safety.
  • Systems over objects.
  • Compasses over maps.
  • Practice over theory.
  • Disobedience over compliance.
  • Emergence over authority.
  • Learning over education.
