As Robert Sylvester, noted brain researcher says about nurture vs. In OII we've come to realize that all three approaches are needed at developmentally appropriate times. As we continue over time to revisit the four directions, there will be times when we build upon our foundations, upgrade our processes, and enter new contexts for applying what we learn. As a jazz musician, I treasure the freedom that improvisation confers on my investigations and expression. I also realize that this freedom came through thousands of hours of rote practice on rudiments, scales, chords, and studies.

Once we realize that we will never "arrive," our pursuit of the skills and techniques that will make our students more effective learners becomes an adventure worthy of a lifetime commitment. This powerful attraction can both rejuvenate seasoned professionals, as well as inspire the incoming educators who will replace the 50 percent of our profession who will retire over the next few years. Professional development offerings must serve lifetime needs.

User-directed and just-in-time learning are guiding principles we've embraced in building OII's curriculum, "Four Directions for Lifelong Learning. The techniques available to us will continue to evolve, and establishing a structure which permits us to revisit these skills as the need arises is uncommon sense in motion. How much better it would be to approach the Web as a way of opening a window into student performance by sharing student work internally over the network so that each student can get timely feedback on their efforts, allowing educators to adjust for the needs of each student.

Today's debate around public education involves three competing approaches: traditional, progressive, and transformative. In the traditional approach, we focus on fundamentals, asking only questions to which the answers are already known.

In the progressive, process is as important as product, so we stress how we arrive at any answers, rather than the answers themselves. In the transformative, the context within which we seek the answers to authentic challenging tasks provides a route to the deepest, most meaningful learning. The holy wars between "whole language vs.
