Francois Bayrou on what net symbolizes

Bayrou is pretender to the French Presidency as head of the UDP and believes that the internet as 'le cinquieme pouvoir' holds great power for the future of his nation. In particular he is fascinated by the potential of open source software and the wiki to make happen an ideal in politics which has escaped us so far: to share knowledge and collaborate on constructing new things which are not purely for economic ends, which involve culture, science and knowledge.

That is why he wanted to come and speak to the 1000 bloggers here: the participative internet is essential to the development of our new world.

Module Masterclass

School leaders and innovators struggle to make the most of educators' and students' potential. My team at NoTosh cut the time and cost of making significant change in physical spaces, digital and curricular innovation programmes. We work long term to help make that change last, even as educators come and go.
