Is the future academy about connected intelligence?

Following on from recent posts about designing the learning experience, etc, I came across this great post at the Experience Designer Network!

I would ask: Are our educational institutions about developing intelligence? Or do they simply perpetuate the socioeconomic status quo?

Also, Ana Viseu writes about a connected intelligence workshop and argues for its relevance with references to Castells, Levinson and Olso, among others...and higlights
how Connected Intelligence as a practice fits into the landscape of the current theoretical discourse about the development of media and current concepts of the essentially social nature of intelligence. This fit of theory and practice is exciting and indicates potential of CI both as a pragmatic approach as well as a field for research.

And here's more about connected intelligence and its impact on the education system: Connected Intelligence Impact.
