Executive Summary: This report is about three new forces that are converging to break open prodigious learning possibilities. The first force, ‘new pedagogies’, springs from the new learning partnerships that emerge between and among students and teachers when digital tools and resources become pervasive. The second, ‘new change leadership’, merges top-down, bottom-up and sideways energies to generate change that is faster and easier than anything seen in past efforts at reform. The third, ‘new system economics’, makes the powerful learning tools and resources that accelerate the first two forces more affordable for all. These forces are nascent, but we see them expanding rapidly – together acting as a form of positive contagion that becomes unstoppable given the right conditions.
