The Learnerspace was born as a shared effort to try to create the future through education. Many of us educators have been hearing so many things related to the future of learning, and yet have had to cope with our frustration of not seeing most of those principles be materialized in real life. The Learnerspace will attempt to bring into fruition what we already know are the irreversible principles of learning for the future, helping schools create that future right away, without the need for systemic change. It is comprised of a vast network of like-minded educators whose vision for the future of education is aligned mostly in that the time is now, and we should wait no longer to make that school of the future happen immediately, to start capitalizing on the promise of 21st century education, so as to make learning in schools more exciting, fun, a better experience for all involved.
