chapter 2 new thinking about science
Chapter 2: New Thinking About Science

A new technology does not add or subtract something. It changes everything.

Postman, 1993

It is not the machines but what individuals or groups do with them that is relevant to social change and important for social inclusion.

chapter 3 new thinking science learning
Chapter 3: New Thinking & Science Learning

Literacy & ICT access are closely connected to advances in human communication and the means of knowledge production.

Warschauer, 2004

Traditional schools & their science curricula are more suited to the needs of the industrial age science than those of the information age.

Chapter 4: Implementing a 21st Century Program

Children cannot be effective in tomorrow’s world if they are trained in yesterday’s skills.

DFEE 1997, 1

We live in a data drenched society (Steen, 1999) full of data smog (Shenk, 1997). We need to provide students with the skills necessary to construct new knowledge from existing knowledge.

Grant, 2007
