Some experts have suggested that the federal government over the past 10-15 years did not take the appropriate steps to update the technology required to stop the current “wikileaks” potentially setting diplomatic relations back a number of years. As educational communities, this could not be a more pertinent example (not that we need one) at the highest level to implement a 21st century model of education now in order to meet the needs of 21st century learners tomorrow and to leverage technology to stay ahead of the curve. Recently, I heard someone say, we need to “prepare students not from our own past but for their future.” Stopping the leaks of 20th century education seeping into our classrooms requires a sense of urgency for the second decade of this new century. What an exciting opportunity and adventure! Join the movement.
