a research based framework that will support your school in building capacity to become a 21st Century Professional Learning Community. Using collaborative partnerships we are able to embed professional development that will enhance technology integration leading to increased student achievement.
NOTE: Jurisdictions are ordered by the percentage of students scoring 669.30 or above on a scale from 0 to 1000. Students with a score of 420.07 or lower appear on the left side of the percentage distribution. These students performed at proficiency level 1 or below. At Level 1 students can answer questions involving familiar contexts where all relevant information is present and the questions are clearly defined. They are able to identify information and to carry out routine procedures according to direct instructions in explicit situations. They can perform actions that are obvious and follow immediately from the given stimuli. The Program for International Student Assessment (PISA) has defined six levels of proficiency based on specific student proficiencies. These specific student proficiencies remain the same across all PISA assessments; however, the score point threshold for students who demonstrate these specific student proficiencies may vary slightly from assessment to assessment. Because OECD proficiency levels are anchored by specific student proficiencies (i.e., by items not scores), the percentage distribution by level can be reported. Apparent differences may not be statistically significant.SOURCE: Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), 2006.

What do Teachers Think 21st Century Skills Are? Teachers are vague and refer to 21st Century Skills as: “technology” and “problem solving” “outside” their content
What are they? Which skills are the most important for Students? P21 Mile Guide Rather than identify or list 21st C Skills (a low level task) you will discuss how important specific skills are for students, evaluate/rank importance and justify ranking Intel Visual Ranking Activity 21st Century Skills?

1/3/2010 Naomi Harm ~ Innovative Educator Consulting Understanding of 21st Century Skills and Outcomes Business and education leaders agree: mastery of core subjects and 21st century skills are essential for success in life and work. The highest ranked skills for students entering the workforce: applied skills that enable workers to use the knowledge and basic skills they have acquired. The most desirable skills: work ethic, collaboration, social responsibility, and critical thinking and problem-solving. Employers also see creativity and innovation as being increasingly important in the future. CloseCasner-Lotto, J. & Brenner, M.W. (2006) http://ali.apple.com/acot2
Technology’s Potential Learning increases when technology enables us to tap outside experts, visualize and analyze data, link to real-world contexts, and take advantage of opportunities for feedback, reflection, and analysis(Bransford, Brown & Cocking, 2000).
Partnership for 21st Century Skills We Must Close the Gap
The Case for 21st Century Learning Our current educational landscape: US is falling behind on international comparison of educational performance (2003 PISA) US ranks 24th out of 29 countries-Mathematics Problem solving US tied with Spain, Portugal, and Italy and ahead of only Greece, Turkey, and Mexico Ken Kay CEO Partnership for 21st Century Skills
What do these scores mean? Level 1 -6 At Level 1 students can answer questions involving familiar contexts where all relevant information is present and the questions are clearly defined. They are able to identify information and to carry out routine procedures according to direct instructions in explicit situations. They can perform actions that are obvious and follow immediately from the given stimuli.
In the United States NAEP assessed over 21,000 12 grade students in reading and math in 2005 The average reading score for 12th graders fell 6 points from1992 to 2005 The % of students in grade 12 at or above Proficient decreased from 40% (1992) to 35% (2005) In 2005 in Mathematics 61% of 12th graders were at or above Basic level. (23% were at/above Proficient)
US graduates taking more courses HS graduates (2.7 million) in 2005 earned an average of 26.8 credits – more than any previous class They earned more credits in “core” academics They earned more credits in fine arts, foreign languages, and technology The % of grads who took at least a standard curriculum rose from 40% (1990) to 68% (2005)
What’s different? The U.S. texts, she said, are much thicker and more cluttered than the ones her students use. “It’s impossible when you have 1,100 pages of math that you get the message,” she said. Principal- the highest-scoring school in the world
Response to TIMMS Schmidt, University of Michigan Ann Arbor,“a mile wide and an inch deep” “It’s basically, you cover everything, everywhere, because somehow, somebody will learn something somewhere,”
For the first time our children will be less educated than the generation before them. Stats from Fed meeting DC

Key 21st Century Skills Initiatives 1. Standards Review Process: Partnership for 21st Century Skills and American Diploma Project 2. WI Summit
Wisconsin Summit on 21st Century Skills WI adopted the Partnership for 21st Century Skills’ Framework for 21st Century Learning in January 2007 State business and education leaders convened a Summit on 21st Century Skills to ensure that students develop the knowledge and skills needed for the 21st century workforce. Through small group discussions, leaders of business and commerce, community organizations, and government agencies defined their expectations for Wisconsin’s PK-16 education system.

Informative assessment guides and facilitates learning. Make instructional and curricular changes intended to yield immediate benefits to students. Students can maintain their work as demonstrations of their learning. Teachers can use evidence of current progress to adjust, adapt, or supplement the learning experience Serves as a GPS, helping all to see the current position relative to the destination, while judiciously avoiding judgments. http://ali.apple.com/acot2
