The Web poses a difficult challenge to the fundamental premises on which our concepts of school and education are based. Knowledge, information, teachers, and technologies are now ubiquitously accessible using the devices we carry in our pockets. We can connect, communicate, and create in ways that only few could have dreamed even a decade ago. Already, a fast-growing number of schools around the world are embracing these new contexts for their work and shifting practice in significant ways. But given the speed and scope of the disruption we’re already seeing, even those changes may not be enough.
