Will speak about the concept of learning for 21 st century job market. How we are training students for jobs that don’t yet exist. Will ask what is 21 st Century Learning and why is technology an important element.
These are the areas I will cover in my presentation.
In this section I will list these skills and briefly define each, indicating that in depth discussions will follow on up coming slides
In this section I will explain each division and subdivision of the main title . Then we will view the embedded uTube video “What Does it Mean to Be Literate in the 21 st Century. Take questions and answer
Discussion will revolve around what each of these skills means and what we need to do to help our students gain these skills. These are not skills that are developed by “teaching to the test”. Show the uTube and do question and answer
Once again, I will talk about what each of these skills demand and how we can expose our students to situations in order to learn these skills.
Discussion about what each of these points means in real world terms away from the textbook and test paper.
Move right to the next slide – Begin with how do we get there from here – on each of the points take any questions and answer them. Ask board members to think about how this could work for our district.
Discuss each of the points and ask members to consider how we would do this in our district.
