  15. 15. Summer 2013 T he admonition that we should be preparing our students for the 21st century is everywhere. There are numerous books, blogs, and content resources promoting and espousing the virtues of 21st cen- tury learning. If one examines the titles and descriptions of presentations at any gifted or general education conference, reference to 21st century learning is prevalent. Most of us in gifted education have regularly advocated for teaching trace their origins back at least 30 years. In 1983, the Na- tional Science Board Commission on Precollege Education in Mathematics, Science and Technology published a report entitled, Educating Americans for the 21st Century: A Plan of Action for Improving Mathematics, Science, and Technol- ogy Education for All American Elementary and Secondary Students So that their Achievement is the Best in the World by 1995. This publication outlined many of the same initia- Quality Classroom Practice for High-Abillity Students Teaching for High Potential THPThe 21st Century is SO Yesterday Brian C. Housand, Ph.D. East Carolina University www.brianhousand.com Brian Housand is an Assistant Professor at East Carolina University in the department of Elementary Education. “The world is moving at a tremendous rate. No one knows where. We must prepare our children, not for the world of the past, not for our world, but for their world, the world of the future.” — John Dewey
  16. 16. CONSTRUCTING SYNTHESIS
  17. 17. Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and SYNTHESIZE new things. - Steve Jobs, 1995

  19. 19. The capacity to bring old elements into new combinations depends largely on the ability to see relationships. new combination old elements James Webb Young, 1940 A Technique for Producing Ideas

  35. 35. Suggested meeting time: 30-60 minutes (Some of you may choose to combine this meeting with meeting #2.) ! Before the meeting: ● Create a TED-Ed (ed.ted.com) account if you haven’t already. All members over 13 should aim to have their own account. ● Watch the first TED-Ed Club Lesson (http://ed.ted.com/on/vaY6FipN). Your group can choose to do this before or during the meeting. ! Guiding questions ● What is your name? How would you describe yourself? What are three things you are passionate about? ● What do you and your club members hope to get out of your TED-Ed Club experience? ! Materials ● A device to take pictures ● Index cards ● Pens ● Copies of this guidebook (one for each member) ! Meeting activities ● Take a few minutes to create a name badge on an index card. Write your name and at least 3 things that you are passionate about. ● Gather in small groups and introduce yourself to your fellow club members. Learn each other’s names and get to know each other. ● Share your reasons for joining a TED-ED Club with the group. Let people know what you’re interested in and what you’re passionate about. This will help your club members give meaningful feedback when you begin developing your presentation idea. ! What will you have created by the end of your meeting? A name badge that lists 3 things you are passionate about. You will bring this to future meetings so that everyone in the club knows your name and interests. ! After meeting #1: ● Browse through the TED Talks (www.ted.com) /TED-Ed Lessons (ed.ted.com) to find ideas that speak to your passions. ● Facilitator: Please send a photo of the name badges from different club members to TED-Ed at TEDEdClubs@ted.com. 6 #1 Introduction week: What’s your passion? It’s tough to give a good presentation on a topic that you’re not passionate about! This meeting is all about getting to know your fellow club members and spending some time identifying and articulating the ideas that motivate each member of your group. Later on, each club member will present and record their own idea worth spreading in the form of a short TED-style Talk.
