  1. 1. Global Education<br />
  2. 2. “Right Stuff”<br />In a Flat World where the competitive market place is flooded with international “stars”, it is no longer about individual economies, its all about the world economy.<br />So how does the United States get back the competitive edge that it once had? According to many leading experts its all about how we teach our children and transforming what we teach our children.<br />

  4. 4. Learn How to Learn<br />We must be able to constantly engage ourselves everyday and make it possible to compete on the world stage in academics.<br />The US has been outpaced by almost every developed country in the world in terms of academic success of their students.<br />We must adapt our learning styles and be always able to continue to learn even after our formal education has ended. In order to accomplish this we must love to learn and be motivated to do so. <br />
  5. 5. Motivation and Curiosity<br />In order for our students to be able to learn how to learn they first need to be motivated to do so. A teacher, parent, and their friends are the ones who will be able to motivate them to keep learning.<br />
  6. 6. Nobody works harder than the curious kid<br />A kid who loves to learn is the very key element to their future success as a student and in the world work place.<br />Curiosity plays a major role in that as well. A kid who is curious (CQ) enough about a topic or certain subject is going to continue to want to gain more knowledge about that particular subject, whereas the smart (IQ) kid is not going to put forth the extra effort to learn more about the subject.<br />
  7. 7. Global Education<br />The United States is falling ever behind in the world education rankings. <br /> The 21st Century has brought the United States in to a service economy from a manufacturing economy, thus changing the landscapes of how the education process takes place.<br />Its all about competing in the world market now. College graduates are not just competing with United States graduates but they are competing against graduates from all across the world.<br /> And there are an increasing number of the jobs going to the graduates from other parts of the word because they are more qualified than those coming from the United States.<br />

  9. 9. The Future<br /> The future of American classrooms have to evolve around the central idea of TECHNOLOGY.<br /> Advancements in technology has outpaced the way children are taught, and its time to embrace technology and make them apart of every classroom.<br />Bill Gates has it all figured out with his programs. He is one of the front runners on “reforming” United States Education and at the top of his list is the use of technology and making it readily available to every student at every school.<br />
  10. 10.
  11. 11. 21st Century Skills<br /> In the flattening world each student must possess certain skills that will make them capable of competing globally.<br /> Skills such as: Being able to continue to learn, work well with others in groups, be able to communicate with others, be willing to learn independently and be able to organize information and synthesize complex data. <br />
