Reinventing Learning


Education consultant Fred Bramante has long asked the question, ‘What if you could remove time and space pressures from the process of teaching?' It's an idea that has caught on in certain circles and would eliminate the confines of classrooms, school periods and calendar years, replacing them with a personalized competency-based approach. But not everyone is on board.
