12 Students Today



Rip Van Winkle

National Technology Education Plan


“We must dramatically improve teaching and
learning, personalize instruction, and ensure that the
educational environments we offer to all students
keep pace with the 21
st

Century. We can get there
with technology. Together, we must work to make
sure every child has a world
-
class education
-
one that
prepares them to live, learn, and work in our
increasingly interconnected world.”





Secretary of Education Arne Duncan




The rapid evolution of the new global “knowledge
economy,” with profound effects on the world of
work.


The sudden and dramatic shift from information that
is limited in terms of amount and availability of
information characterized by flux and glut.


The increasing impact of media and technology on
how people learn and relate to the world and to each
other.


Fundamental Shifts

Wagner, 2008



The Big Four

Four Major Challenges for the United States


How to adapt to globalization


How to adjust to the information technology revolution


How to cope with the rising national debt


How to manage a world of both rising energy consumption
and rising climate threats.


That Used to be Us (Friedman &
Mandelbaum
, 2011)




Critical thinking and problem solving


Collaboration across networks and leading by influence


Agility and adaptability


Initiative and entrepreneurialism


Effective oral and written communication


Accessing and analyzing information


Curiosity and imagination


All Students Will Need These Skills for the Future

Seven Survival Skills Needed for Our Students

Wagner, 2008




Non
-
routine high skilled jobs


Cannot be reduced automated, digitized or outsourced


Involve critical thinking and reasoning, abstract analytical skills,
imagination, judgment, creativity, and math


Routine middle
-
skilled jobs


Involves a lot of standardized repetitive tasks that can be automated


Has been significantly affected by the merger of globalization and the
IT
revolution


Will continue to shrink in this global economy


Non
-
routine low
-
skilled jobs


Have to be done in person or manually


Will always exist, but number will depend on the overall state of the
economy and local supply and demand


Three Types of Future Jobs

Friedman,
Mandelbaum
, 2011



Learning How to Learn
is Key


“You actually want to become really adaptable. You
want constantly to acquire new skills, knowledge, and
expertise that enable you constantly to be able to
create value….Being adaptable in a flat world,
knowing how to “learn how to learn,” will be one of
the most important assets any worker can have,
because job churn will come faster, because
innovation will happen faster.”







Thomas Friedman







The World is Flat



“In a hyper
-
connected world where innovation takes
place ever more rapidly, what a person knows today
will be outdated tomorrow. In such a world one of the
most important life skills will be the ability and desire
to be a life
-
long learner. If average is over, then school
is never over.”



That
Used to be Us (Friedman &
Mandelbaum
, 2011)



Average is Over



The Job



We need to become more right
brained to compete and survive


“The future belongs to a very different kind of mind ─
creators and empathizers, pattern recognizers, and
meaning makers. These people ─ artists, inventors,
designers, storytellers, caregivers, consolers, big
picture thinkers ─ will now reap society’s richest
rewards and share its greatest joys.”





Daniel
Pink



A
Whole New Mind
-
Why
Right
-
Brainers
will Rule the Future




Improvements in attendance and discipline


Broader array of learning resources and experiences


Increased frequency and quality of supportive
individual and group interactions


Improvements in student and parent attitudes
toward the school


Increases in student achievement


Prepares students more effectively for college and
career skills

1 to 1 Mobile Learning

Benefits




Digital natives learn and live with technology. Most have and
bring devices to school.


Most schools have an awkward mix of print and technology
-
based learning resources

often not quite enough of either.
Making the shift to digital instructional materials can save money,
extend access, and improve engagement.


A
BYOD environment promotes healthy and appropriate
technology use.


Take
advantage of online assessment. Most states will shift most
of their testing online by the 2014
-
15 school year.


Expanded
access yields expanded digital options. When every
student as full digital access, it provides the platform for
improved access to effective materials, online courses, and
effective teachers.
