Because we are in the middle of a worldwide knowledge revolution that will change everything in education. The teacher is no longer the primary source of knowledge, though still the most important one in school. Information is everywhere thanks to its easy distribution through the internet, interactive YouTube videos, and instant search engine results. In-person opportunities for youth are also expanding as out of school organizations like museums, corporations, and community centers are becoming more interconnected with schools. The new flow of information and data is upending hierarchies, giving everyone the power of informed choice. But this flow can feel overwhelming, leaving youth with diminishing attention spans and struggling under a deluge of data, visualizations, and information to absorb.
