According to "Maximizing the Impact: The Pivotal Role of Technology in a 21st Century Education System" Task Force, technology is “an enabling force behind globalization, knowledge work and entrepreneurship.” In this sense, technology must empower students to accomplish their own “knowledge work”—work that involves using, processing and creating information and knowledge, which is increasingly prevalent in workplaces and communities. Technology also must enable students to acquire all of the 21st century skills they need to participate fully in the global economy and to manage their own destinies.3
