The context of global interdependence is especially important for this generation of students because many of today’s challenges will be solved only by individuals and nations working together. The future depends on educating a generation of young people who are capable of navigating an interdependent world and collaborating across borders and cultures to address today’s great problems. The future also depends on educating a generation of young people who know how to use technology to learn both formally and informally. Technology itself is an important driver of change. Contemporary technology offers unprecedented performance, adaptability, and cost effectiveness.
