What Is SocialChange101?


SocialChange101 began with the idea that education is a form of social change. We seek to do what Carl Sagan and Rachel Carson did for science, but for social change: share knowledge in a publicly accessible format, and call people to action. We draw inspiration from MOOCs, especially those that use diverse media, flow into social networks, supply links to other resources, and incorporate face-to-face learning opportunities for students. We are also inspired by all those who have connected education and social change: the freedom schools of the civil rights movement, the Highlander Folk School, the literacy programs of Paolo Freire.
