The focus of education is shifting from what students need to know to what they hope to achieve. Content is moving from textbooks to aggregated resources in the cloud. Innovations in technology—free, open source, and third party—are freeing teachers to remake the classroom into a blended learning environment combining face-to-face and online activities.
