  4. <ul><li>What do you need to know, when most of recorded knowledge is a mouse-click away? </li></ul>In light of this…what do students still need to memorize?
  5. <ul><li>How do we prepare our students for jobs that don’t yet exist- - </li></ul>using technologies that haven’t yet been invented . . . in order to solve problems we don’t even know are problems yet?
  6. <ul><li>What does it do to the value of information, when everyone is a producer and knowledge isn’t static anymore? </li></ul>
  7. <ul><li>How do we balance safety and access in order to empower our students with such prevailing skills? </li></ul>
  8. Are you Ready for 21st Century Teaching and Learning? It isn’t just “coming”… it has arrived! And schools who aren’t redefining themselves, risk becoming irrelevant in preparing students for the future.
  9. You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet! Web 1.0 Web 2.0 Web 3.0

  11. Currently, the number of text messages sent and received every day exceeds the population of the planet. Remote Control for Your Life Think of the number of cell phones that are Internet capable! Imagine with me how we can leverage that accessibility in the classroom! But NOT just for email or surfing the Web– mobile learning, when it truly arrives will be a way to do things we couldn’t do before.
  12. It is estimated that 1.5 exabytes (1.5 x 1018) of unique new information will be generated worldwide this year. That’s estimated to be more than in the previous 5,000 years. Knowledge Creation
  13. For students starting a four-year technical or higher education degree, this means that . . . half of what they learn in their first year of study will be outdated by their third year of study.

  16. Creativity Creativity is now as important in education as literacy and we should treat it with the same status. If you're not prepared to be wrong then you will never come up with anything original. We don't grow into creativity we grow out of it, or rather, we get educated out of it.

  19. Time Travel Lewis Perelman, author of School's Out (1992). Perelman argues that schools are out of sync with technological change: . ..the technological gap between the school environment and the &quot;real world&quot; is growing so wide, so fast that the classroom experience is on the way to becoming not merely unproductive but increasingly irrelevant to normal human existence (p.215). Seymour Papert (1993) In the wake of the startling growth of science and technology in our recent past, some areas of human activity have undergone megachange. Telecommunications, entertainment and transportation, as well as medicine, are among them. School is a notable example of an area that has not (p.2).
