David Thornburg on the Evolving Classroom and his “holodeck” classsroom

David Thornburg Ph.D. is an award-winning futurist, author, and consultant whose clients range across the public and private sector, both in the United States and in Brazil. As the founder and director of global operations for the Thornburg Center, he conducts research and provides staff development. His educational philosophy is based on the idea that students learn best when they are constructors of their own knowledge.

Dr. Thornburg’s wife, Norma Thornburg, is currently director of emerging technologies for the Thornburg Center, and they work together on the educational holodeck classroom at Colégio Atual, a pre-K to middle school in Recife, Brazil. Learn more about the holodeck and the educational programs of the Thornburg Center on the Thornburg Center for Space Exploration website, their blog, or by following Dr. Thornburg on Twitter.
