ITEM: Technology requires a shift in teaching


What Do Students Really Need to "Know"?

Breakthrough technologies challenge the fundamental premises of schools.


Will Richardson <http://www.districtadministration.com/node/1064>  

District Administration, Jan 2013


Technological advances now have devices performing our work for us, such
as translating English into other languages, prompting author and
educator Will Richardson to ask what students really need to know when
they leave school. Richardson writes that rather than focusing on
providing students with knowledge, educators should instead focus on
teaching independent reasoning and thinking.
