  • 5. Defining 21st century education . . . “I believe that the purpose of education is not to make men carpenters, but to make carpenters men. To be competitive in a workplace that is changing and will change continuously throughout our careers, my peers and I need to be able to read and understand new information at a level never before prevalent. This should be, however, a familiar aim for the forces of academia, however, since what we must learn, in essence, is to learn. I would ensure a broad and balanced education that exposes every student to rigorous inquiry in every discipline, from physics to pottery and makes them active participants in the process of inquiry and learning.” 11th grade student Pittsburgh PA © Project Tomorrow 2011

  • 66. A vision for education in 2019 “School will become a 24 hour around the clock opportunity with students logging into school from “home.” The role of the teacher will be to lead and assist students in “discovering” the uses for the technology and information. Every student from Pre-K through twelfth grade will have access to learning through the most advanced IT devices available. Learning will occur online at least 80% of the time. School buildings will be open on evenings and Saturdays for remediation, recreation and community activities for the purpose of socialization.” Principal from Michigan © Project Tomorrow 2011
