Future School opens the higher education door further to global networks of relationships, resources, and spaces that support creativity, critical thinking and innovation. I think also Future School, with an emphasis on personalized learning, mirrors efforts by higher education institutions to focus on the needs and interests of learners. It is an opportunity to design with and not for students -- at any age -- before and during their higher education pathway.
Could there be personal (human) networks of support for students as they research and build knowledge? Could such networks support students with actionable research i.e. civic engagement; meaningful projects; making a difference (problem finders)?
