The world our students are about to enter is nothing like it was just ten years ago, and all evidence suggests that the pace of change is continuing to accelerate. Yet too often, when we as educators contemplate the role of technology in education, we focus on the "technology" more than the "education" because our vision of the future is blurred by perceptions driven by politics, marketing, and the media. As a consequence, there has been a disturbing trend to focus on tools as a solution to the problems facing education, rather than literacies that will empower our kids to thrive in their 21st century world. Through this session, attendees will explore five key areas that define what Life 2.0 will be about, will discuss their implications for education, will explore literacies that the 21st century student will need to survive in that world, and will discover ideas for utilizing that knowledge as a framework for change in the 21st century learning environment.
