What Lies Ahead for Our Students
"In the back of that van, I scribbled down four
words in my notebook. 'The world is flat.' As
soon as I wrote them, I realized that this was
the underlying message of everything I had seen
and heard in Bangalore in two weeks of filming.
The global competitive field was being leveled.
The world was being flattened." - Thomas Friedman
"The future belongs to a very different kind of
person with a very different kind of mind
creators and empathizers, pattern recognizers and
meaning makers. These people artists,
inventors, designers, storytellers, caregivers,
consolers, big picture thinkers will now reap
societys richest rewards and share its greatest
joys." - Daniel Pink
