How to teach?

Traditional content, Some content could still be delivered using traditional methods. Teachers would just need to "tweak" those methods. Kids still read! They just read email, instant messages, and texts., How do we use these methods to convey traditional subject matter?

Student driven content, Questioning, Teach students to use questions as a means to find an answer!, Critical thinking skills, Teach students to use logic to assess opinions and beliefs., Teach students to use ethics when making decisions, Teach students how to teach themselves, What is "good information'?, Where can they find it?, How can they tell the difference?
