  • "The information landscape that we live and work within has changed dramatically." (2)
  • Beloit's Mindset Tool

  • "...the best thing we can be teaching our children today is how to teach themselves." (4)
  • "Educators should seek to integrate literacy rather than integrate technology" (5)
  • "Today's schools are faced with a difficult dilemma that pits a student body that has grown up immersed in technology against a teaching faculty that is less facile with the tools of the trade" (6)
  • "How are you building your own learning networks using these tools? How are you modeling your learning for your students/" (7)
