More than 1 out of 2 are working for a company for whom they have worked less than 5 years.
According to former Secretary of Education Richard Riley...
the top 10 jobs that will be in demand in 2010 didnt exist in 2004.
We are currently preparing students for jobs that dont yet exist...
using technologies that havent yet been invented...
in order to solve problems we dont even know are problems yet.
Name this country...
Richest in the world Largest military Center of world business and finance Strongest education system World center of innovation and invention Currency the world standard of value Highest standard of living

The U.S. federal governments Enhancing Education Through Technology Program Fiscal year '04 = $692 million Fiscal year '05 = $495 million Fiscal year '06 = $272 million Fiscal year '07 = $267 million Fiscal year 08 = ? - administration has proposed $0 (for the fifth year in a row)

By 2023, when first graders will be just 22 years old and beginning their (first) careers...
it only will take a $1,000 computer to exceed the computational capabilities of the human brain.
And while technical predictions further out than about 15 years are hard to make...
predictions are that by 2049 a $1,000 computer will exceed the computational capabilities of the human race.
What does it all mean?
