Blog Description: A blog written by the four directors of the UCEA Center for the Advanced Study of Technology Leadership in Education (CASTLE). We not only provoke a new vision of what education might be but also suggest specific changes and improvements to get us from here to there. We are engaged daily in this redesign of learning and will share the successes, failures, concepts, and creations that we find in our own practice and from others around the globe. The task of recoding our education system is both immensely daunting and exceptionally necessary.
