21st Century Learning_Dakota Planning

  1. 1. 21st Century Learning Developing a model for Dakota Collegiate
  2. 2. Things have changed….we get it! • Technology is rapidly changing • There is a disconnect between what we’re doing in schools and how students learn outside of school • Children today are different (digital generation, digital natives, etc.)
  3. 3. A Serious Concern Over the Lack of Balance in the Lives of Kids Today Doing this: • Virtual Relationships • Digital multitasking • “Partial continuous attention” Erodes this: • Underdeveloped social skills (face to face interpersonal skills) • Single task strategies (the ability to learn something new) • Focus, “deeper thinking”
  4. 4. A Serious Concern Over the Lack of Balance in the Lives of Kids Today • Physical activity concerns (obesity rates) • Loss of appreciation for nature/outdoors • Digital addictions • Decrease in basic literacy skills (reading/writing)
  5. 5. A Sign of the Times? “…Our ADD society is rife with technological overstimulation, shrinking attention spans, increasing aversion to print, an ever-growing compulsion for instant gratification, and a general impatience with most things intellectual. In this mental environment, achieving “good” never mind “excellent,” academic teaching is sometimes nothing short of a miracle. Society gets what it nurtures, and both students and teachers end up paying the price.” Heather Stone, Bagot, Man. Macleans, October 18, 2010
  6. 6. A Serious Concern Over the Lack of Balance in the Lives of Adults Today “…We are also crying out for balance in the lives of the adults who are in control of the school system—balance that embraces the realities of the digital online world, balance that acknowledges kids are way ahead of us, and balance that recognizes we have a lot of learning to do before we can effectively apply our life experience to guide our students in this new digital world.” Ian Jukes, Ted McCain and Lee Crockett in Understanding the Digital Generation
  7. 7. Where do we go from here?
