Dr. Lisa Petrides is the founder of ISKME, the Institute for the Study of Knowledge Management in Education, a research group dedicated to studying how educators and institutions use information to make decisions. She is a strong advocate for open education platforms and using information to improve policy. We discussed the state of the education system, some of the underlying goals of education, and the conversation between the worlds of education and business. Look for connections to Andrew Keen’s comments on education and Dr. Timothy Morton’s ideas of interconnectedness.
