Countries around the world are re-thinking the basic structure of their educational systems -- and while several big ideas for reform have been floated over the years, a few innovative schools and forward-thinking teachers have already started to lead the way.

In a new series called The Education Revolution, CBC's flagship nightly news show The National will visit several classrooms that have set aside long held traditions in favour of creativity and experimentation.

The goal is to explore what schools of the 21st century already look like.

In the first installment, Duncan McCue looks at the Massive Open Online Course, or MOOC. MOOCs can fill a classroom with a billion brains and they're changing the way teachers teach and the way students learn.

As part of this initiative, CBC News is reaching out to parents, students and teachers with stories to share about new ideas coming to fruition in their communities.

Perhaps you know of a university professor who has stopped assigning grades, or an elementary school that does not sort children by birth year.

Maybe you are, or have been, a student or teacher in another country. Is there an idea or system already in place abroad that would be a good fit for Canadian students, too?

Please email us at with the subject line "The Education Revolution." The best stories could be featured on The National.
