I just gave a presentation at an IT conference today.  As exciting as the title sounds, there is some interesting information on how we need to educate our young people in a way that is fundamentally different than how we did it 10 years ago.  The answer isn't just using technology--it is using technology in a way that prepares students for a new world.  According to Daniel Pink, author of A Whole New Mind, that new world includes Design, Story, Symphony, Empathy, Play, & Meaning--the kinds of things computers simply can't do. So, take a look at my presentation. I also used Prezi for the first time (an internet-based powerpoint-type program that zooms and flies), so check out the cool new moves.
