Brilliant right up until he said "education is...". I think a discussion of that question should be the point. Education is changing, but what should it be? Where should the emphasis be? Should a focus on "facts" be thrown out all together or would that be throwing out the baby with the bath water?

Some great sound bytes....Facts are Free may become my new mantra.  But.....there's more to it.  We need to support the whole system in moving forward....we need to support teachers and students in reculturing themselves.  I'm an education reformist...no doubt....but from within the system, my POV is somewhat different.  I'd love your help in the liberation of education, but I need you to walk a mile in my shoes too.

One thing to add: most Virtual Colleges, even when they are online, still don't get it. This works.
