  2. 2. Rip Van Winkle awakens in the 21 st century after a hundred year snooze and is, of course, utterly bewildered by what he sees. Men and woman dash about, talking to small metal devices pinned to their ears. Young people sit at home on sofas, moving miniature athletes around on electronic screens. Airports, hospitals, shopping malls – every place Rip goes just baffles him.

Only now the boards are white.” TIME Magazine December 18, 2006 “ How To Build a Student For the 21 st Century” Learning Through New Technologies Introduction Technologies Learning
