  24. 24. … the number one benefit of information technology is that it empowers people to do what they want to do. It lets people be creative. It lets people be productive. It lets people learn things they didn't think they could learn before, and so in a sense it is all about potential. John’s Research Paper Microsoft CEO, Steve Ballmer's 24
  25. 25. The coin of the realm will be do you know how to find information, do you know how to validate it, do you know how to synthesize it, how to leverage it, how to communicate it, collaborate with it, and do you know how to problem solve with it? John’s Research Paper Daniel Pink in “Learn to Change, Change to Learn” 25
  26. 26. … transfer from school to the everyday environment is the ultimate purpose of school-based learning. ‘Research indicates that students are more successful at doing this when instruction explicitly emphasizes the process of transfer by using real world context.’ Partnership for 21st Century Skills, The Intellectual and Policy Foundations of the John’s Research Paper 21st Century Skills Framework 26
