Background

If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow (Dewey, 1944, p. 167). (John Dewey, 1859–1952, philosopher, psychologist, and educational reformer)

The twenty-first century has changed how, when, and where we all learn… It is critically important to align and leverage all participants in the learning system – schools, institutions, organizations, programs, individuals, families, and neighborhoods. (Institute of Museums and Library Services, 2014, p. 13)
