Mathetics and school development

For those able to read German, an interesting new book was published this month. It describes how school development can be accelarated by using eLearning.

Taking mathetics as a learning approach and grounding everything in a solid educational theory a succesfull design is possible. As leading theories the so called "reform education" (Dewey, Dalton, Freinet, Petersen, Montessori) is used.
New theories and research findings show that there are golden chances when we know how to combine the right educational and technical elements. However many times politicians don't know anything about it and choose other directions. That causes improductive processes and costs a lot of money.

The book offers some examples of succesfull approaches in Europe, making use of the theories mentioned before.
