  • (Papert, 1993) Computers serve best when they allow everything to CHANGE
  • Video games teach children what computers are beginning to teach adults--that some forms of learning are fast-paced, immensely compelling, and rewarding. - Seymour Papert
  • The fact that they are enormously demanding of one's time and require new ways of thinking remains a small price to pay (and is perhaps even an advantage) to be vaulted into the future. - Seymour Papert
  • Not surprisingly, by comparison school strikes many young people as slow, boring, and frankly out of touch. - Seymour Papert

  • ! “Gifted  means  you  have  abilities  to  do  stuff  others  may  not  be  able  to  do,  even  if  they  are  not   easy.    This  tree  is  growing  in  the  shade  under  a  step….that’s  not  easy.”
  • “As  a  gifted  learner  I  feel  that  I  am  different;     I  am  a  leader;  and  I  am  powerful!”  
  • “Giftedness  is  you  are  special     and  stand  out  from  others     because  of  your  talent.”
  • “We  all  have  an  impact  on  the  world.       Although  we’re  small,  someday  we     will  do  something  great.    It  means  to     be  inspiring,  creative,  helpful,  and  smart.       Although  being  gifted  has  its  problems,     Being  gifted  is  very  special.”  
  • “We  are  all  different.    Everyone  has  different  abilities;  some   people  may  enjoy  learning.    Being  gifted  is  being  yourself.”
  • “Being  gifted  isn’t   different;     it’s  unique.”
  • “Giftedness  is   being  different  in   your  own  way  and   to  capture   beautiful  moments   in  life  for   something  cool.     Then  your   differences  will   shine!”
  • “Giftedness   means  you  can   be  talented  in   some  things  but   not  at  others;   you  swing  back   and  forth  at  the   things  you  are   good  at  and  the   things  you  are   not.”
  • “Being  gifted  is  like   flying  in  the  sky;     free  to  learn.”
  • “Cracked  mud  is  like  a  puzzle;     like  the  parts  of  the  brain.       When  put  together,  makes  a   gifted  person.”
  • “Being  gifted   means  being   creative  in   your  own   special  way.”

  • Summer 2013 T he admonition that we should be preparing our students for the 21st century is everywhere. There are numerous books, blogs, and content resources promoting and espousing the virtues of 21st cen- tury learning. If one examines the titles and descriptions of presentations at any gifted or general education conference, reference to 21st century learning is prevalent. Most of us in gifted education have regularly advocated for teaching trace their origins back at least 30 years. In 1983, the Na- tional Science Board Commission on Precollege Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology published a report entitled, Educating Americans for the 21st Century: A Plan of Action for Improving Mathematics, Science, and Technol- ogy Education for All American Elementary and Secondary Students So that their Achievement is the Best in the World by 1995.

Housand, Ph.D. East Carolina University www.brianhousand.com Brian Housand is an Assistant Professor at East Carolina University in the department of Elementary Education. “The world is moving at a tremendous rate. No one knows where. We must prepare our children, not for the world of the past, not for our world, but for their world, the world of the future.” — John Dewey

  • UNDERSTANDING DESIGN
  • CONSTRUCTING SYNTHESIS
  • Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and SYNTHESIZE new things. - Steve Jobs, 1995
