What We Talk about When We Talk about Learning

Will Richardson is one of the major change agents in education. I’ve followed him for several years, but recently Will and Bruce Dixon released a White Paper: 10 Principles for Schools of Modern Learning (get it at their website), facebook page, and revamped website that every teacher and administrator in the country/world ought to be reading.

Both the white paper and their blog are shots across the bow at the slow and tedious educational ship of state.  The white paper, in particular is smart, focused, and solutions oriented.  You can find it at this address

Equally important is a sort of overview of “learning” from Will Richardson.  In this little ditty Will muses intelligently on what it means to be a learner and to have learned things:  What is learning?:  Learning is that which causes us to want to learn more.

Couldn’t have said it any better.  Watch Will here:
