Contents include: (1) The Paradigm; (2) Assessing Your Paradigm; (3) Technology of Change; (4) Mounting Paradigm Pressure; (5) Living Life Like a Quarterback; (6) Moore's Law; (7) Photonics; (8) Internet; (9) InfoWhelm; (10)Disruptive Technology; (11) Time for Education to Catch Up; (12) Education in The Future; (13) New Skills for a New World; (14) New Roles for Educators; (15) What Does the Future Hold?; (16) Another Look at the Future; and (17) The Need for Vision.
