I was reflecting on change today--especially change related to education. My, how our world has changed! Students in the past needed to learn facts, to be able to quote gobs of good information, to be able to regurgitate all they could cram in their crazy heads, to be knowledgeable citizens. Today, though, it seems that we have computers for that. In today's world, students need to be problem solvers and critical thinkers. They need to learn to examine evidence and to make conclusions; they need to make inferences and to synthesize, creating their own "unique something" discovery out of all the mounds of information out there. They need to think for themselves and to not believe everything they hear/read....Are we teaching them these skills???
