Every effort has been made to consider all information obtained and to be as accurate andconsistent as possible in our use and analysis of all research materials. However, errors or
omissions may have occurred. Please notify the Premier’s Technology Council of any signi
-cant inaccuracies by e-mail at:Premiers.TechnologyCouncil@gov.bc.caPremier’s Technology Council1600 - 800 Robson Street Vancouver, British Columbia V6Z 3E7http://www.gov.bc.ca/prem/popt/technology_council/© 2010 Premier’s Technology Council
The Premier’s Technology Council (PTC) was created in August 2001 to provide advice to thePremier on technology-related issues. The Honourable Gordon Campbell is Chair of theCouncil, a position shared with the Co-Chair, Greg Peet, formerly Chairman, President andCEO of ALI Technologies (acquired by McKesson Corp in 2002). The Council is fortunate todraw its membership from 20 other leaders of BC’s technology industry and from senior levelsof the academic sector.This special report highlights a vision of education in the 21
century. As a result of ourresearch, we believe that our system must transform to properly serve the citizens of aknowledge-based society. The PTC fully understands that the current education system is both large and complex and that engineering the kind of transformation discussed will be a
signicant challenge. The PTC has not chosen, however, to discuss the specics of 
implementation at this time. We have instead chosen to envision what a new system mightlook like were we able to begin with a blank slate. As there are no implementation stepsconsidered in this special report, it contains no recommendations.In the development of this vision, the PTC conducted extensive independent research. It alsoconsulted with industry, with academia, with representatives of teachers, school districtadministrators and with the Ministry of Education. We would like to acknowledge and thank those who participated, in particular the public servants who continue to assist the PTC in itsendeavours and who work hard to implement a vision of a knowledge-based society. We would like to express our thanks to all the members of the Premier’s Technology Council who volunteered their time and energy. In particular we would like to recognise the effortsof Mr. Don Safnuk who acts as Chair of the PTC’s People Task Force and led the process thatcreated this vision. Finally we would like to thank the Premier for his continued interest andsupport.Sincerely,Eric Jordan,PresidentPremier’s Technology Councili
