Rethinking Education… Together

Collaboration – Participation – Community Building

“…[M]ore of what makes for human welfare depends on
info, knowledge and culture,
and social production and
peer production
is beginning to produce what we need;
software, textbooks, publishing.”

-Yochai Benkler, Professor of Law, Yale Law School
