Key features of the media’s coverage of learning space and time include:  1). Innovation in learning space and time is a private sector enterprise; 2). Global competition is the reason to reform learning space and time; 3). Digital media is a major character in the media narrative about learning space and time; and 4). Media rarely describe how and why space and time influence learning.

Education experts… call for updating critical components so that schools provide the kinds of skills, knowledge and learning that students need to participate as engaged citizens in the 21st century information economy.
