Knowledge is Power?

In the classroom of the content purveyor, knowledge is power. And that's good. But in the classroom of the educator who values open source thinking and teaching, knowledge is a by-product of more important skills. Twenty years ago knowledge was indeed power, but in today's world of almost incalculable information explosion, access to information is power, and process is power. Having the ability to locate information and use that information within a process that promotes information evaluation and synthesis in order to build knowledge in response to a question of meaning is true power.
