"The role of education is to prepare children for a world that hasn't been invented yet." Karen Kirkland
When I was at school, the role of a web designer or computer programmer didn't exist. The world is so different now. We have 24/7 mobile technology that keeps us in touch with the world. Good or bad, these innovations are here to stay and new ones are being invented all the time. As educators we have to prepare our students to think and be creative in this rapidly changing world. Our future depends on creative innovation.
