Modern Schools for Modern Learners: Will Richardson

April 18, 2019

Will Richardson is an internationally recognized speaker and author on learning and technology. He's authored six books, most recently "Freedom to Learn" and blogs at www.willrichardson.com. Most recently he was named one of the top 100 global thought leaders and changemakers in education by the Finnish group hundrED, and he is the co-founder of Modern Learners (www.modernlearners.com)

In this podcast, I ask him an array of questions on schools and some statements from "10 Principles for Schools of Modern Learning" (https://modernlearners.com/10-principles-schools-modern-learning/), such as its impetus, changing vs. starting schools, the issue that schools were started with a scarcity mindset, and the role of technology as an amplifier of learning.
