"As Ms. Davidson puts it: “Pundits may be asking if the Internet is bad for our children’s mental development, but the better question is whether the form of learning and knowledge-making we are instilling in our children is useful to their future.”"

Where does this fundamental change need to begin? In Vermont's core curriculum standards? In the tests that students take to measure outcomes? In the minds of teachers/parents? In the ubiquitous deployment of broadband Internet access? I believe Cathy Davidson is absolutely on-target with her recommendations. The massive behemoth that is public education needs an overhaul for today's kids to be ready for tomorrow.
