  • This is one of the most important slides. Critical thinking and problem solving. Creativity and innovation. Communication and collaboration. This is the skill set that is the critical skill set in the 21st century and the challenge we all have is how do you take a system that is focused primarily on the content of the left side of this chart and migrate to a system that’s focused on these skill outcomes for kids? That’s the challenge in a nutshell. You know, and people said to me… You don’t really think that every kid needs to critically think do you? And I felt very lucky because he then pointed to a woman behind the cash register and he said, You don’t think she needs to critically think, do you? And I said to him, Boy did I luck out. He said, Why? I said, Look what you picked! In a lot of places her job’s gone already. Right? There are places where that job’s gone. What does she do when her routine job is eliminated? She’s got to critically think and problem solve her way to what’s value added in that cafeteria, what’s value added in the food organization? Or, if those jobs go away, how do I rethink, critically think, my way to defining a new value added in the economy that’s constantly going through change? She’s got to critically think. In the same way that knowing math, science, English and social studies was my ticket up the economic ladder in the 50s, I’m saying to you that critical thinking and problem solving is her ticket up the economic ladder in the 21st century. If she has content mastery of math, science, English and social studies, and she doesn’t possess the ability to critically think and problem solve, you are not giving her the same opportunity I had when you told me to master math, science, English and social studies. It’s that simple. This set of skills is the economic equivalent of the contract that you as school board members and superintendents had with me on the issue of content focus 50 years ago.
