It is often said that “the future is not what it use to be.” In this information-driven, technology-rich world, where jobs are created and become obsolete in only a few years, preparing our children for a future that we can not even imagine has become one of our society’s greatest challenges.There are many barriers that prevent us from retooling our classrooms for 21st century teaching and learning. But at the core are the “stories” about education that we share. Most adults base their images of schooling on their education experiences from 10, 20, or 30 years ago. Our classrooms — what they look like, what teachers and students do, what is taught, how it is taught, and why — are all modeled after old and outdated stories that are still being told by our culture. We must tell new stories that are simply and compelling.
