In writing about the story of success of the most wealthiest, Gladwell explains, If you were born in the late 1840s you missed it. You were too young to take advantage of that moment. If you were born in the 1820s you were too old: your mind-set was shaped by the pre-Civil War paradigm. But there was a particular, narrow nine-year period window that was just perfect for seeing the potential that the future held. (p. 62)

Similar to the industrial revolution, from the years 2000-2010, the world went through another revolution The Information Revolution - where advancements in technology have fundamentally changed they way people live, work, and learn. If you were born in the 1990s you really had the potential for great opportunities in public education, but sadly the mind-set of your teachers and school leaders was shaped by a different time period, therefore you pretty much missed that wave.


We need to somehow change faster.7We need to somehow change fasterNo one jumps a 20 foot chasm in two10 foot jumps. Miguel Guhlin

When the world changes so fast that we have no reasonable way to forecast what it will look like in a mere decade or two, all we can do is teach kids how to be adaptive to be learners in the truest sense of the word

Weve always talked about preparing lifelong learners in schools, but our practices typically havent matched our rhetoric. Its time to put some bite into our toothless vision statements and recognize that we have to teach kids how to learn to learn if they want to be successful in this new technology-suffused, globally-interconnected world

Pathways and goal setting for studentsEach community based school will need to address the future of education in their individual ways. Government should only provide guidelines through Common Core; however, each community should address how to get to the finish line. 43
