Learning to Change, Changing to Learn

I'm posting this again, because it kills me every time.







"So, the coin of the realm is not memorizing the facts that they'll need to know for the rest of their lives. The coin of the realm will be:
Do you know how to find information?
Do you know how to validate it?
Do you know how to synthesize it?
Do you know how to leverage it?
Do you know how to communicate it?
Do you know how to collaborate with it?
Do you know how to problem solve with it?
That's the new 21st Century set of Literacies, and it looks a lot different than the model that most of us were raised under."
