Education of the 21st Century: Creativity!

Coming from one student is there opinion of what a 21st century Education should look like.  It is not applying a certain kind of technology or even simply applying the knowledge, but getting students to think creatively.  Thinking critically is not enough anymore.  Students need to be able to think creatively to solve problems.

The most interesting aspect of this blog is that it did not come from any expert but instead from a student. So, why do students know what we need for teaching to the students of 21st century, but the schools do not?  Should stop trying to figure it out on our own and ask the audience to which we are teaching: our students.
