Commenting on Obama's declaration of high-speed Internet "in nearly every public school" in the context of President Clinton saying virtually the same thing in 1996, Luis Ubinas makes some astute observations on our progress. AND notes that the key is the library & librarian. True. No matter how well-connected & speedy the Internet is, there is still a dire need for someone in the school to TEACH KIDS HOW TO USE IT PROPERLY.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 17, 2013 6:53 PM

So there is a digital divide.

Susan Grigsby @sksgrigsby's comment, July 5, 2013 11:43 AM
A digital divide AND an instructional divide. When libraries are left unfunded for years at a time and librarians are fired, laid off, or shoved back into the classroom then valuable information literacy instruction is lost to countless students.

Now the time has come for NEW INNOVATION: "First:  Simplicity of Set UP. The user could take the computer out of the box, plug it in, and be ready to go." Steve Jobs

The design of the product comes first, the development of the hardware had to follow to fit the design, never the other way around. Design goes into the very inner workings of a device.

25 Critical Thinking Strategies For The Modern Learner

25 Critical Thinking Strategies For The Modern Learner | Literacy and learning in the 21st century | Scoop.it

"Critical thinking is the engine of learning.

Within this complex process or so many other relevant themes that contribute to learning: creativity, analysis, evaluation, innovation, application, and scores of other verbs from various learning taxonomies.

So the following infographic from Mentoring Minds is immediately relevant to all educators, and students as well. It’s a bit of a mash of Habits of Mind, various 21st century learning frameworks, and the aforementioned learning taxonomies, promoting collaboration, problem-solving, and real-world connections (standard “critical thinking fare” with Habits of Mind-sounding phrases such as “Open-Mindedness.”"
