Move our Educational System into the Digital Age

MOBICIPNEWS on March 21, 2012

Don Knezek, CEO of the International Society for Technology in Education, shared these Top Five Lessons for the Digital Age on the EdWeek Blog. We agree with these lessons and we encourage you to read the complete article.

Knezek states the importance of this move into the digital age and asks: "How else can we prepare our children with the skills and literacies they'll need to thrive in school, work, and civic life? That's what we want for them, isn't it?" Here are his five lessons to get us started.

1.) Want a future for our kids? Build a bridge.

2.) Concerned about educational value? Advocate for it.

3.) Want a world class education system? Collaborate internationally.

4.) Concerned about competitiveness? Invest in great teachers and school leaders.

5.) Want transformation? Go with the flow.
