  • Are you Ready for Learning and Leading in the 21st Century?
    It isn’t just “coming”… it has arrived! And schools who aren’t redefining themselves, risk becoming irrelevant in preparing students for the future.
  • Web 1.0 Web 2.0 Web 3.0
    We are living in a new economy – powered by technology, fueled by information, and driven by knowledge.

  • Shift in Learning = New Possibilities
    Shift from emphasis on teaching…
    To an emphasis on co-learning
  • Knowledge Creation
    It is estimated that 1.5 exabytes of unique new information will be generated worldwide this year.
    That’s estimated to be more than in the previous 5,000 years.
  • For students starting a four-year technical or higher education degree, this means that . . .
    half of what they learn in their first year of study will be outdated by their third year of study.

    What about students has changed since you went to school?
    What about schools has changed or not changed since you went to school?What should School 2.0 look like in order to meet the needs of the 21st Century learner?
  • Time Travel
    Lewis Perelman, author of School's Out (1992). Perelman argues that schools are out of sync with technological change:
    ...the technological gap between the school environment and the "real world" is growing so wide, so fast that the classroom experience is on the way to becoming not merely unproductive but increasingly irrelevant to normal human existence (p.215).
    Seymour Papert (1993)
    In the wake of the startling growth of science and technology in our recent past, some areas of human activity have undergone megachange. Telecommunications, entertainment and transportation, as well as medicine, are among them. School is a notable example of an area that has not(p.2).
  • Mobile Computing
    Smart Phones
    The mobile market has: 4 billion subscribers, three-fourths of whom live in developing
    countries. Over a billion new phones are produced each year, and the fastest-growing sales segment belongs to smart phones —
  • Open Content
    Relevance for Teaching, Learning & Creative Expression
    Open content allows teachers to customize their courses quickly and inexpensively and keep
    up with emerging information and ideas.
    Communities of practice and learner groups that form around open content provide a source
    of support for independent or life-long learners.
  • Trend 1 – Social and intellectual capital are the new economic values in the world economy.
    This new economy will be held together and advanced through the building of relationships. Unleashing and connecting the collective knowledge, ideas, and experiences of people creates and heightens value.

  • What do we need to unlearn? Example:*I need to unlearn that classrooms are physical spaces.* I need to unlearn that learning is an event with a start and stop time to a lesson.
    The Empire Strikes Back:
    LUKE:  Master, moving stones around is one thing.  This is totallydifferent.
    YODA:  No!  No different!  Only different in your mind.  You must unlearn what you have learned.
  • What will be our legacy…
    Bertelsmann Foundation Report: The Impact of Media and Technology in Schools
    2 Groups
    Content Area: Civil War
    One Group taught using Sage on the Stage methodology
    One Group taught using innovative applications of technology and project-based instructional models
    End of the Study, both groups given identical teacher-constructed tests of their knowledge of the Civil War.
    Question: Which group did better?
  • Answer…
    No significant test differences were found
  • However… One Year Later
    Students in the traditional group could recall almost nothing about the historical content
    Students in the traditional group defined history as: “the record of the facts of the past”
    Students in the digital group “displayed elaborate concepts and ideas that they had extended to other areas of history”
    Students in the digital group defined history as:
    “a process of interpreting the past from different perspectives”
  • Change is inevitable: Growth is Optional
    Change produces tension- out of our comfort zone.
    “Creative tension- the force that comes into play at the moment we acknowledge our vision is at odds with the current reality.” Senge
  • Real Question is this:Are we willing to change- to risk change- to meet the needs of the precious folks we serve?
    Can you accept that Change (with a “big” C) is sometimes a messy process and that learning new things together is going to require some tolerance for ambiguity.
