Learning for Ourselves
Abstract (Document Summary)
The communications and instructional technologies necessary to make education an anytime anywhere activity rather than a place-bound schoolhouse event have been rapidly evolving for several years. The only step remaining in the United States is to end the public-school monopoly on funding so that learners can leave schools and find the education of their choice. Despite constantly accelerating social and technological change, the paradigm for education has remained essentially static. For the first time, a critical mass of fiscal, social, and technological factors have converged that present a real push for significant change in the educational paradigm. A market-driven world of educational opportunities will develop, giving learners an unlimited number of educational options. Some of these possible options are discussed.
