How are we taking this into account in terms of professional development and human capital? • Baby Boomers • Gen Xers • Gen Yers • Kids have had different levels of exposure to technology.

  41. 41. Basic online entertainment (online videos, playing games) E-commerce (online shopping, banking, and travel reservations) Research and information gathering (product research, news, health and religious information searches) Email and search Active engagement with social media (visit SNS, create SNS profile, create blogs) More advanced online entertainment (download videos, music and podcasts) More advanced communication and passive social media use (instant messaging, visit SNS, read blogs) From: State of the Internet 2009: Pew Internet Project Findings and Implications for Libraries The vast majority of online adults from all generations uses email and search engines. While there are always exceptions, older generations typically do not engage with the internet past e-commerce. The majority of teens and Gen Y use SNS, but fewer maintain blogs. Online adults older than Gen X are less likely to use SNS. Online activity pyramid: by generation 41Thursday, November 3, 2011
  42. 42. Project Tomorrow Recommendations • Un-tether learning and leverage mobile devices to extend learning beyond the school day and meet all learners in their own world • Create new interactive, participatory learning spaces using tools such as online classes, gaming and simulations, online tutors, and virtual reality environments • Incorporate Web 2.0 tools into daily instruction especially those that develop collaborative or social-based learning and provide unique opportunities for students to be content developers • Expand digital resources in the classroom to add context and relevancy to learning experiences through new media tools • Get beyond the classroom walls and make learning truly experiential such as using high tech science instrumentation and creating podcasts with content experts 42Thursday, November 3, 2011

  45. 45. 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.

  51. 51. 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. 50Thursday, November 3, 2011
