    • © Project Tomorrow 2010 Deconstructing our keynote topic “ Developing a shared vision of innovation for 21st century learning”
    • © Project Tomorrow 2010 Deconstructing our keynote topic Shared vision Innovation 21st century learning
    • © Project Tomorrow 2010 Defining shared vision “ A shared vision is not an idea...it is rather, a force in people's hearts ...at its simplest level, a shared vision is the answer to the question: What do we want to create?” Peter Senge MIT Sloan School of Management
    • © Project Tomorrow 2010 Defining innovation "Creativity is thinking up new things. Innovation is doing new things ." Theodore Levitt Harvard Business School
    • © Project Tomorrow 2010 Defining 21st century learning “ 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.” 11 th grade student Pittsburgh PA
