  15. 15. Global Economic Competitiveness “The goal for America’s educational system is clear: Every student should graduate from high school ready for college and a career by 2020. We must lead the world in college completion by 2020.” –President Obama We’re in 16th place, and we’ve heard this before: • 1983 – A Nation at Risk (standards) • 1994 – Goals 2000 (performance targets) • 2001 – No Child Left Behind (accountability) • 2009 – ARRA /Race to the Top15

  17. 17. Global Economic Competitiveness Supply & demand challenge: “In 15 years, the U.S. will be 1,000,000 degreed students short in order to fill U.S. jobs – 1,000,000 good- paying, professional jobs will need to be „outsourced‟” –Bruce Vandal, Director, Postsecondary & Workforce Development Institute, Education Commission of the States, 201117

  22. 22. Consumer-Driven Education 17.6 M undergrads in U.S. higher ed today: 37% 32% 36% Enroll part-time Work full-time Graduate in 4 yrs What are these buyers’ preferences and requirements?22
  23. 23. Consumer-Driven Education And the customer will “look” different in the future: K-12 student demographics (2010 to 2020) • flat for students who are White; Black; • increase 25% for students who are Hispanic; • increase 36% for students who are Asian/Pacific Islander • increase 17% for students who are American Indian/Alaska Native HE student demographics (2010 to 2020) • flat for students who are White; American Indian/Alaska Native • increase 25% for students who are Black; • increase 46% for students who are Hispanic; • increase 25% for students who are Asian/Pacific Islander23
  24. 24. Consumer-Driven Education Demand for anywhere, anytime learning: 10 Billion 1 Billion 2 Billion Mobile Devices Tweets/week Videos per day on YouTube24
  25. 25. Macro Forces and Policy K-12 Postsecondary • Common Core State Standards • Emphasis on college completion and • Common state assessments “gainful employment” • Student growth monitoring and • Shifting finance models in response engagement to decreased state funding (Obama efficiency demand) • Teacher and principal effectiveness • SROI of remediation • Statewide P-20 data systems • Instructor effectiveness • Individualized Learning Plans • Student “recovery” RttT “carrot” … Waiver “carrot/stick” … ESEA “stick”25
  26. 26. State policy & individualizedstudent learning
  27. 27. Strong Message: Personalize Learning Hobsons 2011 P-20 Summit“No org has been able to successfully assemble data to facilitate the career-education trajectory” “Too many students see $ as THE roadblock to postsecondary ed”“TurboTax or Mint.com for ed decision-making” “Consistent solution throughout P-20 – sticky”“Enable students to start their HE path earlier, if ready…dual enrollment” [Sample Board Members: Ron Huberman, JB Buxton, Margot Rogers, Larry Leverett, Eric Fingerhut, Bob Ptachik, Andy Rotherham, Barbara O‟Brian]27
  28. 28. Individualized Learning Plan The ILP and state policy: • 25 states & D.C. mandate ILPs • 3 states mandate a guidance framework (no formal planning document) • 22 states do not have a mandate, but – 9 provide ILP models – 13 provide a guidance framework for districts to use Hobsons ILP report: http://www.hobsons.com/education-trends/resource-center/industry-reports/28
  29. 29. Typical ILP Components • Academic Planning • Career Planning (career exploration, goal setting, resume builder) • Regular ILP updates/sharing/review (annually is most common) • Personal reflections • Personality and learning style assessments • Service learning capture • Link to learning support services • Portfolio29
  30. 30. Best Practices for ILP Implementation ILPs that engage students: • Emphasize the individual in the ILP – Student learns about own learning strengths and needs – Student has tools to explore academic, career and personal interests and to make goals – Student owns planning, learning and outcomes • Create a support team for each student – Parental/Guardian involvement – Involve all appropriate staff in planning process – Connect student to learning resources – Peer support30
  31. 31. Future Trends Closer connection with SIS >> data analysisBeginning planning sooner >> 6th grade or earlier31
  32. 32. Future Trends Develop curriculum around ILP development Planning process as tool for family engagement Every student >> a comprehensive support network32
  33. 33. Discussion
  34. 34. How Does Florida‟s ePEP Compare with Other States? Like other states, ePEP focuses on appropriate courses for graduation & career interests. Questions: • How do students gain ownership of their ePEP? • How are students encouraged to reach academically? • What are the mechanisms to promote parent/guardian involvement in this process?34
