The curriculum of the public school has become bloated, fragmented, mired in trivia, and short on ideas. It does not demand that students connect what they learn with anything else. It does not challenge them to reach beyond their limits. The curriculum stifles curiosity. Although it demands effort, it does not reward deep thought.

The MacArthur Foundation (USA) launched a $50 million initiative in 2006 to help determine how digital technologies are changing the way young people learn, play, socialize, and participate in civic life. The foundation asserts that the answers are critical to developing educational and other social institutions that can meet the needs of this and future generations.
