What happens when you open source education, give it the barcamp treatment? Well, the film Accepted.
This movie could easily be just consumed as a 'US teen movie' but I feel and hope it's core messages are taken to heart. I equate our current education systems to a factory. There to manage children's information needs. As the films says, why don't we listen to the children, what do they want to learn? Children are serious about their dreams and ambitions, that is what drives their passion. The benefit to the community is that we all get to share in their successes when they are given the opportunity and freedom to pursue them.
Maybe the next barcamp grid will be a colorful as the one in the movie.
