Mark Finnern @ AC2005

Mark works for SAP and runs their developer program ... he's been there a long time, and is a long time futurist. His Introduction to Intelligence Amplification started with a number of slides covering thoughts by John Taylor Gatto. Gatto posits that there is a Fourth Purpose behind institutional education. He feels that the current design of the system is flawed, and more interested in teaching consumerism than anything else. All of this proposes that there is a better way to educate, and maybe different things that we ought to be educating about.
