Abstract

Of all of the levers for educational reform and improvement in this new technologically rich millennium, clearly the two most powerful are students, whose needs and talents should be at the center of any and all new K-16 reforms in teaching and learning, and the Internet, which will enable every student to touch and feel and know and master this new world. In the process, these two dynamos will become the teachers’ and schools’ most vital resources and energize the reinvention of schooling as we know it. Further, students will become better prepared to excel in our technology-centered society, and add dramatically to the nation’s already impressive pool of innovators and entrepreneurs.
