The World Is Not Flat

Charlie Schick of Nokia has been talking about how the World Is Spiky. Why? While we can work anywhere with the Web 2.0 tech that we have there are still centres where everything happens: Silicon Valley - on a spike - Boston - on a spike - Europe - further down - India - not even showing. People not on those spikes are already missing out on the conversation going on in business. In Scotland we constantly look to the US for inspiration, especially in blogging and podcasting, ignoring what is already going on to a high standard in Europe. Are we in education also missing out on the conversation as the big boys (and girls) battle it out in the US?

Module Masterclass

School leaders and innovators struggle to make the most of educators' and students' potential.
