This is mostly a podcast (beware: self-starting audio and video) but the article will give you a brief outline of Michael Fullen's career and influence. "Michael Fullan is Canada's gift to education," write the Getting Smart staff. "For half a century and with 45 books to his credit, Fullan has been the world's most persistent and persuasive advocate for powerful learning experiences."

"Fullan thinks the focus should be 'life readiness' rather than college and career readiness. He thinks it's the nexus of our time. He points to six Cs, the new global competencies: character, citizenship, collaboration, communication, creativity and critical thinking."
