The main premise of the article is that there has seldom been “a true paradigm shift. This isn’t surprising, considering that innovation, responsible risk-taking, and teacher leadership are rarely encouraged, valued, or supported in education.”

It goes on to argue that in order to achieve a paradigm shift for education in the C21, 3 major elements must be promoted:

1. A culture of learning
2. Teacher leadership
3. Technology and innovation
