John Seely Brown has been immersed in innovation and learning for the last three decades. As a visiting scholar and adviser to the provost at the University of Southern California, co-chair of the Deloitte Center for the Edge, former chief scientist at Xerox Corporation and director of its research center, PARC, he has deep expertise in radical innovation. Combine this with his strong interest in digital youth culture and digital media and the result is a message that will likely resonate with anyone working at the intersection of learning, technology and youth. In this video, which contains the highlights of his “Cultivating the Entrepreneurial Learner” keynote at the 2012 Digital Media and Learning conference in San Francisco, he introduces the fascinating notion of “a global one-room schoolhouse through networks of imagination.”
