green bullet Eragon Author C Paolini online video about writing WOW

"There was a time in American schools when knowledge came almost exclusively from textbook and teachers. From them, students learned what they needed to know to get jobs in the factories and workplaces of the industrial age. That time has passed. There's been an explosion of information in the world, more information than anyone could help to learn in a lifetime, more than a teacher can teach, so now students need to know where to find that information, how to access it, and how to use it." Michael Lemonick
