Session Discussion for my NECC Presentation

Thought I was getting up way to early this morning.  Now I see that the clock by my bed was about three hours slow.  That could have ended disastrously!

I just posted my session forum discussion on the NECC08 Ning site, and would love your feedback.  To get there, point your browser to:

Spotlight Presentation

Description: The world is flattening, and not just economically. Learn about three converging conditions that are redefining education?and providing windows to the future. In this presentation, I will seek to examine and factor together three foundational disruptive conditions that are converging on our schools, each serving to disrupt schooling as we know it, yet also providing direction as we work toward new models for teaching and learning — Learning 2.0.

My Question: What do you believe are the fundamental disruptive conditions that are demanding a new kind of education institution?
