What is Schome?

Schome was envisaged as being a system that would support people learning throughout their lives, from the cradle to the grave. Unlike other initiatives to transform education the Schome Initiative took the view that you needed to start with a vision of the ideal education system that would genuinely meet the needs of society and individuals in the 21st Century and was unconstrained by pre-conceptions of existing education systems. Having established a vision of the optimal education system for the 21st Century (i.e. schome) the next stage would be to devise a strategy for moving from our current systems to schome.

What is the Schome Park Programme?


The Schome Park Programme consisted of a series of research projects, which set out to extend thinking about what education systems might be like. It ran from March 2007 till October 2008. Nearly two hundred 13 to 17 year olds and around 50 adults have had some level of involvement with the programme which used our ‘closed’ island(s) in Teen Second Life™ virtual world alongside this wiki and the Schome forum.
