Quest to Learn

The transformative new School for Digital Kids in New York City called Quest to Learn has recently completed their first quarter of assessments piloting Oracle Student Learning as a platform for 21st century learning with promising results. Last week I signed up Amy from our curriculum design partner Flattoads for OBIEE training so the teachers can start delivering their reports for parents and administrators. In a surprising development, it's rumored the new Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emmanuel and former Chief of Staff to President Obama accelerated the new ChicagoQuest site to open a year earlier than expected to position Chicago as a leader in digital educatio.n To get an idea of why game design, systems thinking and collaborative learning using digital media are the now and future of learning, check out this PBS Special on New Learner's of the 21st Century

Oracle Student Learning

The big change taking place in online learning for kids is thinking about and directing "personalized" learning services which are customized to each individual student. Oracle is making a strategic move from their enormous success in the back-office administration and into the front office in K-20 edu markets around the world. The key application for that initiative and my new charter is Oracle Student Learning (OSL). Stay tuned for more news soon and if your campus has an interest in OSL, be sure to let me know so we can start moving schools from industrial production lines to dynamic customized online learning places for kids, teachers, parents and administrators.
