It´s position is that all learning should result in substantive personal and social change. This concept includes, among other ideas, the relationship between culture, communities, and the institutions and curriculum purported to serve them, as well as emerging technologies and media.
In pursuit, the blog, is starting small. Some blogging, some networking, and some curriculum for starters, followed up with a brick-and-mortar school, and an open-source school model that can be adapted to fit local needs. The pathway beyond involves content, apps, and the kind of connectivity that can reach anyone on the planet at any given time.
