Are schools built for learning?

"It’s an absolutely amazing time to be a learner.”
Will Richardson has spent the last dozen years developing an international reputation as a leading thinker and writer about the intersection of social online learning networks and education and has authored four books, including "Why School? How Education Must Change When Learning and Information are Everywhere", now the #1 best-selling TED book ever. A former public school educator of 22 years, Will is also co-founder of Modern Learner Media and co-publisher of, which is a site dedicated to helping educational leaders and policy makers develop new contexts for new conversations around education. Will believes that there is a real disconnect between our beliefs about schooling and the practices that we embrace in schools. For meaningful change to occur in education, we must start with what be believe about how kids learn and what’s important about education.
