Empowered learning: fostering thinking across the curriculum
|Title:||Empowered learning: fostering thinking across the curriculum|
|Authors:||Harada, Violet H.|
|Abstract:||Most people will finish their formal education between the ages of 18 and 22. Today’s young adults are expected to have the longest average life span in the history of the world, with most living into their 70s and many living into their 80s and 90s. We can only guess what life will be like in the years 2050 or beyond. One likely prediction is that many of today’s young
adults will be working at jobs that currently don’t exist and dealing with technologies that dwarf the imagination of present-day science fiction writers. What do they need to learn during their first two decades of life that will prepare them for their remaining years? (Halpern, 1997, 3)
