Great Ideas from Canadian Leaders – Digital learners
For the first time in history, children are the authorities and adults are the learners with respect to the information and communication revolution of which we are all in the midst.

They’re unlike any previous generation. Yet this digitally brilliant demographic is still being taught in an educational system based on an industrial age model.
