The four panelists or "interactors" will facilitate a dialogue to explore how educators can shape the concept of school and pedagogy so the learning experiences of young people are as interesting as the new media they routinely enjoy in their home lives. The panel and participants will use a team learning system (TLS) which scaffolds knowledge creation (Elliott, 2002) and supports human-human interaction to explore the role advanced collaborative cognitive and cultural tools can play in learning and development. Three key themes will be addressed. How can teachers compete for attention in a culturally rich world? How can society create meta-cognitive processes for the wise application of newly created and superb (Penrose, 1990) ancient knowledge? What must the teacher of tomorrow do to actively engage with learners in a culturally transformative way?
