  14. 14. We have learned… It is more than technology; it is abundance of resources. We can’t afford to wait until it gets simpler, more convenient, more accessible. Students already know how to use technology to learn, to communicate, to live their lives. In some cases, the student will be the teacher and the teacher will be the student.
  15. 15. We have learned… In a global society, we can no longer afford to provide information from one textbook, one genre, one point of view, limited by space, time and geography. The journey is challenging, but our students are worth it. If we work together, we can do it.
  16. 16. We have learned… It’s a new dawn. It’s a new day. It’s a new life for all of us. Nina Simone
