Ellen Galinsky: Education: Reform or Transformation?

These initiatives have a great deal in common. They are all focused on learning, not teaching. They all call for helping children find passion, purpose, and meaning in learning, for making their own plans and following through on these plans, for having first-hand experiences, for bringing together the worlds outside and inside the classroom through collaboration and co-location, and for using technology to foster learning.

It was great meeting Ellen in Aspen. She mentions Maker Faire in her article.
