Learners

We find ourselves in a period of transition.

Digital tools will find their place in schools and libraries.

We have managed transitions of this sort before.

The hard part, during transition, will be to discern what to preserve about traditional education and what to replace with the new, digitally mediated processes and tools.

Sometime, this will mean teaching kids to use computers; sometimes, computers will have no place in the room.

We need to get much better at telling the two apart.

Only then can we exploit what we know about how kids are learning in the digital age.
