rovouchers -- redeemable at Internet centers, or Paypal or cell phone credits -- to help market-sensitive learning network gain market share.
We also are gearing up to provide small "Seeds of Change" rewards for students who upload YouTube clips on local progress of informal peer learning networks, especially on understanding opportunities useful in the Internet economy.
A cornerstone of our approach is to help entrepreneurial schools more rapidly move to sustainabililty. The EntrepreneurialSchools.com site explores a range of ways to do so, including attraction of digital donations, conveyance of land grants, "pay-it-forward human capital investments," and adaptation of Cristo Rey-style internship programs to help fund tuition costs.
Where will it lead? Ultimately, we hope, to replacing the current system of bureaucracy-burdened education with one that welcomes students as co-creators of new media resources and (with their families and friends) as co-owners of profitable new learning ventures, including for-profit virtual charter schools.
Look forward to the conversations!
