Paper Abstract

American education is on the verge of a revolution. The revolution is focused on involving students in real-world tasks and in practicing communities, both geographical and topical, where these tasks are done. This revolution is characterized by a new recognition of the social and community nature of learning and requires providing students and teachers with access to people, information, and computers that form the rich variety of existing and emerging education resources. We describe the manner in which current and next-generation communications technology support this approach and can provide the ubiquitous connectivity implied by this approach. We describe the key characteristics of the needed technological innovations.
