Telling the New Story
- Media that's targeted at you but doesn't include you may not be worth sitting still for.

There are many barriers that prevent us from retooling our classrooms for 21st century teaching and learning. But at the core is the story of education that resides in our minds. Most adults base their knowledge of schooling on their education experiences from 20, 30, or 40 years ago. It is a story that is etched almost indelibly by years of being taught in isolated, assembly-line fashioned classrooms.
How do we retell the story of education and fashion a new image of the classroom as a rich and comprehensive environment where students learn by asking questions, experimenting with a rich and diverse information environments, and interact with people around the world -- in order to discover and build knowledge?
What is that story and how do we tell it? Who should this story be directed to and who should tell it? What will it look like, sound like, feel like, and how will it affect people?
