  28. 28. Trend 1 Technology is increasingly a means for empowering students, a method for communication and socializing, and a ubiquitous, transparent part of their lives.
  29. 29. Trend 2 Technology continues to profoundly affect the way we work, collaborate. Communicate, and succeed.
  30. 30. Trend 3 The perceived value of innovation and creativity is increasing
  31. 31. Trend 4 There is increasing interest in just-in- time, alternate, or non-formal avenues of education, such as online learning, mentoring, and independent study.
  32. 32. Trend 5 The way we think of learning environment is changing.
  33. 33. Critical Challenge 1 Digital media literacy continues its rise in importance as a key skill in every discipline and profession. The challenge is exacerbated by the fact that digital literacy is less about tools and more about thinking, and thus skills and standards based on tools and platforms have proven to be somewhat ephemeral.
  34. 34. Challenge 2 Students are different, but educational practice and the materials that support it are changing only slowly
  35. 35. Challenge 3 Many policy makers and educators believe that deep reform is needed, but at the same time, there is little agreement as to what a new model of education might look like.
  36. 36. Challenge 4 A key challenge is the fundamental structure of the K-12 education establishment.
  37. 37. Challenge 5 Many activities related to learning and education take place outside the walls of the classroom – but these experiences are often undervalued or unacknowledged.
