-How do we know what is important to teach and learn today will actually be relevant in ten years?

-How do our assessment techniques and reporting reflect the upcoming and current educational changes?

· If the skills we are teaching will become obsolete and the jobs we are preparing students for don’t exist what do we teach?

-Reading and writing skills are important as well as using these skills to prepare students for independent, problem solving skills.

-Teachers need more exposure to technology so they can integrate it into their daily teaching practice.

Students are more vocal about what they are learning is not relevant to them, their life and to their future.
We need to harness the expertise our students have and utilize it in the classroom to make their learning more relevant and engaging, and to help others learn.
