    • Implications for Schools • Need for strategic human capital planning • Need for increased targeted, sustained, personalized and thoughtful professional development • Need for long range planning for students’ use of technology. Requires schools to think of skills sets needed by students at various points in their academic careers while gauging the future of technology. 54Monday, March 19, 12

    • So what? • Networked learning: You must be open to at least letting your kids drive the technology use in your classrooms. Be willing to engage them in the ways that they learn best. • Generational diversity: Change is not going to happen without schools working as teams to examine at longitudinal goals. • 21st century skills: The art of teaching comes through via the weaving of 21st century themes into core content. You need to provide guidance and be thoughtful when designing classroom activities. • Learning environments: Just as we’ve looked at the whole child, we need to start emphasizing the whole learning environment. Personalized learning for both students and teachers is important. 62Monday, March 19, 12

    • How Do You Prepare Students? 82Monday, March 19, 12
    • Edutopia February/March 2008 http://www.edutopia.org/sage-advice-world-citizens 83Monday, March 19, 12
    • First you help them define the term “citizen of the world”. Then you help them learn what being a good citizen means -- to themselves, to loved ones and family, to the school community, to the surrounding community. One’s actions can be directly linked to one’s values (beliefs, feelings, and actions that are important to us), so starting with a basic understanding of one’s values is essential to any meaningful discussions on citizenship. The global context is meaningless unless students are good citizens of their own nation. 84Monday, March 19, 12
    • Right before our eyes, all that the education sector has controlled, dismissed, manipulated, validated, embellished, fictionalized, and ranked within an aura of tradition and ritual may be accessed by point-and-click. We need to stop chasing exponentially expanding content. Inquiry, problem recognition and solution, creativity, knowing one’s strengths and weaknesses, communication, and relationships are what students must be prepared for. 85Monday, March 19, 12
    • Becoming a world citizen requires knowledge and experience of other cultures; U.S. schools do not provide knowledge or experience. Rather, they provide a cursory glimpse of others in order to exemplify how not to be American. “Diversity Day” does not create world citizens, it patronizes cultural difference and touts xenophobia, and always winds up pandering American culture as Eurocentrically defined. Only travel and immersion in other cultures creates world citizens. 86Monday, March 19, 12
    • Prepare students to be citizens of the world by being one yourself. Teach from a global perspective. 87Monday, March 19, 12
