MIT – Media Lab
The idea is to launch pilot programs on the following identified key points of action: learning environment transformation, integration and transition, continuous development, and support and follow-up in order to facilitate a holistic change.
The proposed strategy is to bring change from the inside out by collaborating with several teachers within a particular school (s) in order to design and implement fundamentally different learning environments that have the potential of infusing new meaning to the school as a whole.
