I really like 'The education system for the Information Age' - for me it captures all the stuff about education needing to recognise the sorts of skills that we need in society today (communication, collaboration, real problem solving, information handling, etc.).

I struggle with phrases like "Information Age" because they are us trying to invent ourselves for the future. Labels like that become meaningful (just) in retrospect. People didn't walk round saying "It's great in the Iron age"..."Cor, thank god I'm alive during the Industrial Revolution".

And worse still...the phrase suggests we didn't need all those skills before now.

So if we are debating what the strapline is surely we should know what the strapline is for first? So what are we saying Schome is?

I like the "information age" tag too. It does seem to say where we are coming from. Do you feel that it's not holistic enough?

No. Here are three more reasons...

1: I think it is already bordering on a cliche... 2: To lots of people it will be all computers and mobile phones and other gadgets... 3: It's a politicians phrase...
