Alvin Tofler Author and Futurist We are living
through the deepest upheaval in the world
knowledge system since our species started to
think. Until we digest that point our best laid
plans in the future will misfire. The
illiterate of the 21st century will not be those
that not read and write but those who can not
learn and unlearn. -----Alvin Toffler is a
writer and futurist known for his works
discussing the digital revolution, and is a
former associate editor of Fortune magazine.

Marc Prensky Thought Leader in Education Masters
in Teaching, Yale / MBA Harvard
University Todays learners are not the ones
our systems (and teachers) were designed and
trained to teach. For the first time in
history, learners are no longer limited by their
teachers ability and knowledge. Learners are
looking for 21st century skills and knowledge and
our teachers dont have them. -----Marc
Prensky is an internationally acclaimed speaker,
writer, consultant, and designer in the critical
areas of education and learning. He is a former
high school teacher.

functions, and industrial competitiveness.

School of the Future While the school of the
futures environment is continuous, relevant, and
adaptive, relevant is the real linchpin. Many
teachers bristle when students ask them the
time-honored question, Why do we need to know
this? But from her point of view, if a teacher
can't answer that question the lesson plan is

Old Delivery Teacher Centric
  • Current Classrooms -- Teacher Centric
  • Standardization, which replaced personalization
    as public school enrollment rose in the late
    1800s, still dictates the way subjects are
  • A teacher rules the classroom roost, using a
    prescribed approach to teach a generic curriculum
    to everyone in the classroom at the same time.

Old Delivery Teacher Centric
  • Current Classrooms -- Teacher Centric
  • Technology used as supplement is not
    transformative .

New Delivery Student Centric
  • Future Classrooms -- Student Centric
  • Utilizes the teacher as mentor, problem solver,
    and support person.
  • Focus for this "floating" teacher is on serving
    individual students who are learning at their own
  • Shift not easy, but rewarding.
