<p>The Intellectual and Policy Foundation of the 21st Century Skills FrameworkTheory, research, and policy that support the 21st Century Skills Framework is based on the connection between societal demand and educational response as well as the effects of advances in learning science and learning technology.We must restore to our schools the skills that future citizens will need to succeed in the worlds of work, higher education, and personal life.We must also consider that technology needs to also connect students with the information, people, and real world contexts that will inspire and engage them throughout the entire curriculum.</p> <p>The Intellectual and Policy Foundation of the 21st Century Skills Framework (cont)</p> <p>Education and SocietyEducation, after all, is the attempt to convey from one generation to the next the skills, values, and knowledge that are needed for successful fife.</p> <p>Education and Learning ScienceTo provide an excellent and equitable education for every child, schools must more effectively incorporate advances in learning science into instructional practice.Lev Vygotsky-importance of social environmentJean Piaget constructivism-minds

Killing Creativity Sir Ken Robinson</p> <p>Poll Daddy Creativity Survey</p> <p>SmartStorming</p> <p>Schools are Killing CreativitySir Ken RobinsonCreativity is as important as literacyIt is the gift of human imaginationAccording to Picasso, all are born artists but few remain artists as they grow up. Students get educated out of it. Education has established a hierarchy of subjects (Math/languages, humanities, arts to include art/music, drama, and dance) so that education is based on academic ability but why? All should be equally important. We need to educate the whole being so they can face the future, whatever that looks like 50 years from nowEngage students in divergent thinking such as asking them to see connections, identify/create metaphors, look for many answers, reinterpret ones.Intelligence is:Diverse (visual, auditory, kinesthetic)Dynamic (we see things differently)Distinct (epiphany moment-not ADHD but Dancer ex.)</p> <p>Poll Daddy Creativity SurveyTen Mental Blocks to Creative Thinking1. Trying to find the right answers2. Logical thinking3. Following rules4. Being Practical5. Play is not work6. Thats not my job7. Be a serious person8. Avoid ambiguity9. Being wrong is bad10. Im not creativeThe results of my survey were in agreement with the rest of the class in 6 areas. I was usually the one or two far from the pack on #1, 2, 4, and 5. I realize that I have been trying to develop the creative side, I am still a traditional learner. In my k-12 education, Math had always been my strength, looking for that one logical right answer. Now that I have taught Reading and English for 25 years, I have begun to develop my right brain, my creative side. I am glad to know the four areas I can focus on before I retire!</p> <p>SmartStorming</p> <p>Are you Innovation Inept?</p> <p>Thinking about innovation isnt the same as innovative thinking.</p> <p>What is really needed for innovation to happen is a combination of:Motivation-to make the effort in the first placeFreedom-to explore and express without the fear of reprisalSystems-for sharing, developing, and promoting ideas throughout an organizationKnowledge-talent and skills required to actually transform an idea into a viable plan and, ultimately, a realityResponsibility-for ensuring that it all happens</p> <p>SmartStormingG80/20ogleGoogle employees are encouraged to spend 80% of time on core projects and 20% on innovation ActivitiesTo implement an innovation policy:1. Create a formal process for project selection, monitoring, and evaluation.2. Dont worry about failure.3. Start small.4. Let your staff shine.5. Manage expectations.</p> <p>The Awesomeness ManifestoAwesomeness is the new innovation1. Ethical production-turn a blind eye or deny ethics2. Insanely great stuff. .New and unexpected often fails to delight, inspire, and enlighten.3. Love. Love for what you do is the basis for all real value creation.4. Thick Value. Versus thin value is real, meaningful, and sustainable to make people authentically better off, not just adding bells and whistles.</p> <p>SmartStorming</p> <p>Technology + Design = Apple?</p> <p>Whats next for technology and design is a lot less thinking about technology for technologys sake, and a lot more thinking about design.Left-brain thinking is focused on logic and reasoning that is emphasized on the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) subjects.Right-brain thinking is in the key IDEA (Intuition, Design, Emotion, Art).We need both halves of the brain to work together-mind and movement.</p> <p>Critical Thinking</p> <p>Blooms TaxonomyBenjamin Bloom developed a taxonomy of cognitive objectives in the 1950s. His taxonomy follows the thinking process beginning on the continuum from Lower Order Thinking Skills to Higher ones. (Knowledge, Comprehension, Application, Analysis, Synthesis, Evaluation)</p> <p>Lorin Anderson, Blooms former student, revised his taxonomy in the 1990s to include verbs instead of gerunds and rearranged the sequencing (Remembering, Understanding, Applying, Analyzing, Evaluating, Creating)</p> <p>Blooms Taxonomy Blooms DigitallyBlooms digital taxonomy map address new objectives presented by the emergence and integration of information and Communication Technologies in to the classroom and the lives of our students:</p> <p>Blooms Taxonomy Blooms Digitally</p> <p>Remembering: Bullet pointing, highlighting, bookmarking, social networking, Social bookmarking, Searching, Googling.</p> <p>Understanding: Advanced searching, blog journaling, twittering, categorizing and tagging, commenting, annotating, subscribing.</p> <p>Applying: hacking, uploading, sharing, editing</p> <p>Analyzing: Attributing, outlining, linking, mind-mapping, validating, tagging</p> <p>Evaluating: (Blog) commenting, reviewing, posting, collaborating, networking</p> <p>Creating: animating, Blogging, wikiing, publishing, videocasting, podcasting</p> <p> Problem Solving-Projects-ChallengesOverview</p> <p>Progressive Education in the 1940sEngaging Our Youngest Minds: Ignite the Wow in Students Angela Maierss Online ConferenceThe Virtual Heroic Journey Kevin Hodgsons Online ConferenceSpeak Up 2008 For Students, Teachers, Parents, and Administrators</p> <p>Progressive Education in the 1940sEducation in the 1940s included rote recitation of the multiplication tables, history dates, spelling of words, and geographical location. There was a check for memory, not for understanding.</p> <p>Today, learning is fun. Education is trying to build character, self reliance, and the ability to work with others. Thus, we need to equip students with the skills they will need to face the future.</p> <p>Progressive Education today, K-12, follows the tenet that seeing is believing or to learn by doing. Project-based learning can happen at any age.</p> <p>Ages 6-7 can go to the grocery store.Ages 8-9 can learn to manage a store.Ages 12-14 can study airplanes.</p> <p>Engaging Our Youngest Minds:Ignite the Wow in StudentsAngela Maierss Online Conference</p> <p>Student engagement and learning in the digital age must include passion.Find the passion in your students and that is what will drive them to use the technological tools-not the tools themselves.Nothing great in this world has been accomplished without passion. Hegel, 1832Technological integration is not enough to cultivate this passion; we need to lead students to find their own.To keep students inborn sense of wonder alive, their talents and their uniqueness, teachers need to tap into student interest, maintain high standards, and use new technology.Provide experiences, resources, and tools where students can use technology as a platform to share their voices in the world. Students can use technology to research, play, publish, and collaborate with others.</p> <p>The Virtual Heroic JourneyKevin Hodgsons Online ConferenceKick it up a notch in your classroom by having students use Google Maps and Google Earth to create a fictional heroic journey story.This unit can be tied to literature (The Odyssey, The Lightning Thief), writing, and use of technology.The teacher and students begin by reading the graphic novel chronicling Odysseuss escape of Poseidons curse to illustrate the heroic journey and plot device.Next, read The Lightning Thief to follow Percey Jackson in his quest to return Zeuss stolen lightning bolt. Then use the tools to plot this quest.Students are now ready to create their own heroic journey to include three encounters with creatures marking places on Google Map where the hero encountered the monsters on their journey home. Students had to type their text (story) and embed images of monsters (from his Picassa folder).Mr. Hodgsen then created two web sites to view their work.
