Today's topic at my blog "Resurgence" on BigThink.com:
Is Learning Without Walls The School Of The Future?
I spoke with one of Atlanta’s former mayors last week about the new advocacy organization she had just joined. Shirley Franklin, the first black woman to run the city, seems to be enjoying life after City Hall as a professor at Spelman College. Though she is selective about the causes she works for these days, she has recently joined the Alliance for Digital Equality (ADE) as a senior advisor. The most impressive thing about the interview was when she told me about Learning Without Walls, a pilot program the ADE administers in three cities. In fact, the library based broadband project sounded so good that after the interview, I decided to do a little digging.
