Abstract

There is growing consensus among policy groups that if current generations of students are to be competitive in the twenty-first century, our education system must be transformed to address the needs of a connected global economy. Students learn different today than in previous generations, and much of the change is due to advancements in information technology. The purpose of this study was to assess 4000 middle school student's perspectives about what they need to be engaged and achieve in school settings. The findings are viewed within the context of teacher education and the new demands technology in the global economy is placing on our educational system.
