Basically, Will Richardson, an educator who was among the first to adopt technology and problem solving in his classrooms, asserts that around 90% of students are illiterate when it comes to communicating globally and accessing the "trillion" sources of information. Kids are wasting time in school compared to the problem solving skillls they develop playing complex video games.

So, please Google Will Richardson, or better yet, download the book featured here to your Kindle or other app, and we will explore ways to stop wasting time in school.

The full name of the 50 page book is "Why School? How Education Must Change When Learning and Information Are Everywhere." By Will Richardson. I especially think parents shoild take note here. You must push for change.
