Bestseller "Wikinomics: How Mass Collaboration Changes Everything" sends educators a critical message that individuals can no longer independently learn all they need to know.

In a globally connected world, there is enormous value in using online tools and technology to collaboratively connect and learn with others. But, without some structure it can lead to chaos and frustration.

Youth need to learn collaborative, 21st century learning skills, through safe, structured, supervised, educational projects.
