Michael Smith over at the Principal’s Page does a consistently fabulous job of creating short poignant blog posts about learning, education, and related things… today’s post about Generation Z is exceptional and spot-on… here’s an exerpt:
They don’t need us.
The don’t need brick buildings that are only open 7 hours a day.
They have the internet.
They’re going to learn with or without our help.
And the learning process is not going to stop for them after 8th grade. Or high school. Or even college.
They’re smarter than us right now.
And they’re going to be a lot smarter than us in 50 years.
The future isn’t coming, it’s already arrived.
