Think of this as Volume 17, Number 49 of the newsletter I have written weekly since March, 1997. Enjoy.
This is a subject I'll be discussing both this week and next week. Come along for the ride.
It's an important subject because that is precisely the world we're living in. Yet hardly anyone has begun to get their arms around this, let along build a curiculum around it. Instead we're still teaching kids using factory methods from the 19th century, and a set of curricula from the 20th century that doesn't take the Internet into account at all.
And if today's kids are going to be contributors to society, the most important course isn't even being taught, not even in college.
No one is teaching the Internet.
