Partnership with New Era IT
Business Leaders are saying they need students to learn media literacies, critical thinking skills, and develop the interpersonal and self directed skills that enable students to manage projects and tools
Gilbert considers knowledge based societies also value attributes such as understanding of diversity, ability to innovate and creativity (Gilbert 2005)
Students can't be passive spectators to achieve these attributes. They need to be engaged. We should not use ICT to do 'What schools have always done'

'Active seekers, users and creators of knowledge'
Ministry of Education Vision Statement:

'Rather than knowledge being developed and stored knowledge is increasingly being viewed as a process and valued for its ability to do things' i.e. stored knowledge is not an end in itself but rather a resource students need to generate new knowledge (Gilbert , J. 2005).
'Catching the knowledge wave? The knowledge society and the future of educaiton' Wellington NZCER Press.
Need emphasis on students gaining a wide range of lifelong learning attributes - not only gaining content knowledge - but engaging in meaningful learning experiences.
