“If you only have a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.” Dr. Abraham Maslow.

In this time of teaching-to-the tests we are in effect giving our children a single tool – the hammer we call memorization – and expecting them to solve all their personal problems, and their future employer’s problems, with that one implement. We are teaching and rewarding Convergent thinking – expecting a single answer – instead of teaching and rewarding Divergent thinking – demanding as many possible answers as possible. 

That was all well and good in the first and second, and maybe the third industrial revolutions. Not so in the Fourth.
