    Thanks George. My short answer is YES. My longer answer based upon observations, and conversations with professionals, students, and my own children, is once again YES. School, as it is currently structured, is inhibiting meaningful, relevant learning for many of our digitally connected (including students & staff here). My recent post explains that teacher cognition is both a blessing and a curse. It provides confidence and intuition for classroom practice, but if the practice is obsolete or irrelevant, then genuine change occurs slowly and with discomfort.
