Edutopia was created by The George Lucas Educational Foundation to address the issue of our system of education being slow to adapt to new advances in teaching and learning. Thier vision is of a new world of learning. A place where kids and parents, teacher and administrators, policy makers and the people they serve, all are empowered to change education for the better. A place where schools have access to the same invaluable technology as businesses and universities -- where innovation is the rule, not the exception. A place where children becaome lifelong learners and develop the technical, cultural, and interpersonal skills to suceed in the twenty-first century. A place of inspiration, aspiration, and an urgent belief that improving education improves the world we live in. They call this place Edutopia.
