Educational Change Challenge

Here's a good video that would be appropriate to share at the beginning of a workshop/ presentation/ conference about teaching with technology in the 21st Century. The video has me excited about the conversations already taking place at ISTE 2010 and the conversations still to come.

Some highlights from the video:
Who seriously believes that locking 25 students in a small room with one adult for several hours each day is the best way for them to be educated?

Moving from the one-room schoolhouse to the one-world schoolhouse is now a reality.

And my favorite line from the video, In education the use it or lose it rule may mean if you don't use tech for learning, you may lose relevance. An educator must be relevant.
