people on our tech. team.
Thanks A Million
Donna Trenda was the one who identified the quote and source it reads as
follows.  Thank you Donna!!!

"We are now at a point where we must educate our children in what no one
yesterday, and prepare our schools for what no one knows yet."
                                           -Margaret Mead

Several others asked for a hit on the other quotes so here they are.

"it's not enough to teach students to suft the Net; we must teach them to
make waves."      Ben Shneiderman, 1999

"The illiterate of the 21st Centruy will not be those who cannot read or
write but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn"   A. Toffler

"Technology makes things possible; people make things happen".  E. Bloch

"Date isn't information; Information isn't knowledge; Knowledge isn't

"Our children will grow up in a world we can only begin to imagine. They
will have jobs that have not been invented yet. The child who is an
'Information Navigator', who can wend his way around a computer, is the
child who is best prepared to succeed in this exciting new world."--Robin
Raskin "Parents, Kids and Computers"

As Richard Riley from the Department of Education has said, "The top ten
jobs that will exist in the year 2010 do not exist today. We are preparing
our students for jobs that don't exist, using technologies that haven't yet
been invented, to solve problems that we haven't even considered yet."

"[Librarians] are subversive. You think they're just sitting there at the
desk, all quiet and everything. They're like plotting the revolution, man. I
wouldn't mess with them."

 Michael Moore
