This page provides some info about schools which are rethinking their practices. Feel free to add additional schools/links and comments ...
This includes 'chapters' on:
- Technology trends shaping Edtech
- How money shapes tools and schools
- How Edtech tools are evolving
- How schools are changing
This last 'chapter' includes thoughts about the elements (what we might call dimensions) of schooling that you might change and information about 14 school districts (in the US) that were trying to change along some of these dimensions.
King Edward VI Community College
This 'secondary school' in Totnes (Devon, UK) has scrapped normal subject based lessons for its Year 7 pupils - instead they study 'themes' in two hour lessons (the exception being for modern languages and PE which are still taught as discrete subjects). The aim being to enhance the students' independent learning skills.
