Phase 3 of Big Ideas 4 Education

First of all, I want to thank each of you who have already contributed to this project.  The final document will be a compilation of and hopefully a tribute to the power of a community of thinkers.

Phase 3, and perhaps the most important phase, has begun.  We are starting with a list of eight basic topics related to retooling education for an unpredictable future, extensively networked learners, and a dramatically new information landscape.  Within each of those are statements that were submitted by educators during phase 1, and then associated with the eight topics by contributors in phase 2.

Today, I am asking you to pick one or more of the eight topics, thinking about them in terms of relevant education, and contribute your more thoughtful ideas and arguments concerning the topic. You are encouraged to click into the associated topics (click the plus by the topic to see the most strongly associated statements, and Show All, to see all of them), and include responses to those items as well.

So that this more thought conversation can be brought together to one place, I ask that you include the tags that are attached to each topic and statement.  For instance, include at the end of your blog article about topic 2 with comments about the second statement:

bigideas2 bigideas243

If you do not currently have a blog, you can set one up in less than 10 minutes with Blogger.com (video tutorial here).

Finally, I have fixed the sidebar link badge, so I encourage you to spread the word with a badge or just point folks here as you have the opportunity.
