The George Lucas Educational Foundation was created to address this issue the issue that children today are greatly influenced by technology. The foundation's vision is of a new world of learning, where kids and parents, teachers and administrators, policy makers and the people they serve, all are empowered to change education for the better; a place where schools have access to the same invaluable technology as businesses and universities -- where innovation is the rule, not the exception; a place where children become lifelong learners and develop the technical, cultural, and interpersonal skills to succeed in the twenty-first century; a place of inspiration, aspiration, and an urgent belief that improving education improves the world we live in. Edutopia is the tangible embodiment of that vision. Edutopia.org contains a deep archive of continually updated best practices, from classroom tips to recommendations for district-wide change. Allied with a dedicated audience that actively contributes success stories from the field, the foundation's mission relies on input and participation from schools and communities.
