    Within the four walls two sources of information- textbook and the teacher
    Students were passive receptacles waiting to be filled
    Focus was on compliance, coverage of information, rote learning
    This model remained unchanged for 100 years and fed our economic engine and personal development well
    Quote has often been referenced in our work towards developing our mission and vision, world is changing, and these are exponential times
    Information surrounds us, and is growing at an exponential rate
    Preparing students for careers and jobs we do not know yet will exist
    Focus must move beyond knowing and understanding
    We have been engaged in this shift in teaching and curriculum. But the requirements of such require new tools that allow easier access, communication, feedback, differentiation
