Flexibility and relevancy?

Tony Bates is giving input to a committee this week and he’s asking for ideas (not that he doesn’t have a lot of his own ideas already). But here’s our chance to contribute:

I’ve basically been away from computers for a week (a conscious vacation decision to limit access and really take a break — I kept up with family via Facebook on an iPod touch and that was about it).

I’m glad I’m back in time to comment for Tony though. I referenced Sir Ken Robinson because I believe relevancy is key. And I fully agree with Bates on the idea that flexibility is crucial as well and that government funding structures have to be modified to support the fact that learning doesn’t just take place in classrooms anymore.
