David Warlick grew up during the 1950s and ’60s, in a three-stoplight mill town in western North Carolina.
“Education was difficult for me – but learning was not” he says. “I enjoyed being in class, listening to teachers talk about our world and participating in discussions (in our continuing efforts to get the teacher off the subject). I had some outstanding teachers, who loved their work and who were magnificent lenses on the world that we lived in. I decided early on that this was what I wanted to do” says Warlick.
“Today, the world is a different place. Our sense of the future has changed, our students learn differently, and the very nature of information has transformed into something more dynamic and vibrant. Technology has advanced at a rate that would have astounded us 50 years ago. This time of rapid change is forcing us, for the first time in decades to rethink education and what it means to be educated.”
David Warlick does not consider himself a techie. “I know techies, and I am not one of them. Techies have developed wondrous machines that provide brand new means and methods for accomplishing our goals. They are highly creative and knowledgeable, and they live the technology. They are excited by the ‘light’.”
David Warlick says he is excited by what we can shine that “light” on… a new and exciting vision for classrooms that is changing our notions of teaching, curriculum and learning.
“I have presented workshops and formal larger group addresses to audiences for more than 30 years. Most would say that I talk about technology. But this is not my goal. Instead, I try to persuade educators that technology’s impact has little to do with hardware and software, that it is more about the changing nature of our information landscape and how that has changed how we learn and even what it means to be literate.”
David Warlick believes education needs to adapt to today’s prevailing information environment and the ways that it has changed how we work and play.
