    What can we add and what can we let go of? What is now relevant?
    Obsolescence of subjects requires us to evaluate closely and tailor
    our teaching for what really matters today. The time contraints with publicly educated students versus Home schooled students who can craft their own curricula was apparent this summer when Ashoka’s Summit conducted a survey on when and how social entrepreneurial projects could be done. Opening up students minds might first involve opening up their time.

    This article about Steve Jobs confirms my belief that we need to teach and encourage everyone to be “tweakers”. I would welcome a fab@lab in our community so that teens and adults could explore what they could create.
