Chapter 10: Rethinking Education in a Technological World

Where do we go from here?  Several ways of thinking need to change

  • Learning- now a society of life long learners
  • Motivation- what motivates our students to learn
  • What is important to learn- not rote memorization but HOW to learn and communicate
  • Careers- most people will have multiple careers throughout their lifetime
  • Transitions from learning and work-not just for college any more
  • Educational Leadership- collaborate with others to embrace new technologies

I love the way this chapter ended.  As educators in the Teacher Leader program, we are the leaders of the future.  Even if our interest areas are not technology, we must recognize the importance of integrating technology.
