Learning society
A 21st century learning community

Imagine a 21st century community, only a few years from now:
* Every student has hit or her own laptop computer.

* Every home has its own combined computer-television set at a cost of only $300, or possibly much less.

* Every home and every student is connected to the internet.

* Every person, at almost any age, can have instant access to the world's best teachers on any subject.

* Each can also select at random from the world's best libraries, interactive science museums and science galleries.

* Each is linking up regularly with others around the world, designing their own electronic games to teach their own favorite subjects.

* Every new parent is trained to be able to develop each child's fantastic early potential, to be able to identify different learning and thinking styles.

* Every four-year-old can read, write, spell, count, add, subtract, multiply, divide, compose her own stories, draw, paint and speak three or four languages but they have learned all this with fun and games.

* The health of every child from birth is regularly monitored to ensure his eyesight, hearing and other senses are in great "learning order".

* Every five- or six-year-old starts school with an equal opportunity to develop its full potential.

* School itself is the best party in town: a base from which to explore the whole world of experience and knowledge.

* Schools themselves have been completely redesigned. They are now round-the-clock ommunity learning and resource centers.

So reads the start of chapter two of the world's biggest-selling non-fiction book in 1999, The Learning Revolution, by Gordon Dryden and Dr. Jeannette Vos. The chapter then goes on to outline the 13 steps to a new learning society. Dryden and Vos say all the steps they recommend are working in practice in pockets around the world. And the first society to put them all together will revolutionize learning.
