why so important?
Maintaining Our Identity as
Education Shifts Beneath Our Feet
So, what can I do in
Our students are now competing in a new, global economy.
The world is flat again!
21st Century Skills are NOT about...
Doing things digitally
rather than by
traditional means
...then our roles in students' lives would be OBSOLETE.
What I'm NOT saying it's not...
Any teacher that can be replaced by a computer, deserves to be.

Core Subjects and 21st Century Themes
21st century interdisciplinary themes
If teachers can only provide:
Taking a worksheet and making it digital doesn't make the learning 21st century skills-based
any more than standing

The U.S. has been falling behind
The nature of work is changing
How many of your Parents & Grandparents had only one or two jobs in their lifetimes?
The requirements of the 21st Century work force are changing
We need to prepare our students to be effective 21st Century citizens
Give me a good example
Tap into students' curiosity
Have THEM ask questions
Put them together to figure out a problem
Allow students to come to an opinion-based conclusion
Incorporate Project-Based Learning into your lessons
What Is PBL?
Assess the process, not only the final product
The object of teaching a child is to enable him to get along without a teacher.
-Elbert Hubbard

“ In the 21st century, students must be fully engaged.
This requires the use of technology tools and
resources, involvement with interesting and relevant projects, and learning environments — including online environments that are supportive and safe. ... In the 21st century, educators must be given and be prepared to use technology tools; they must be collaborators in learning—constantly seeking
knowledge and acquiring new skills along with their students.”
— Arne Duncan, U.S. Secretary of Education March 3, 2010
Well, here's what NOT to do...
In Project Based Learning (PBL), students go through an extended process of inquiry in response to a driving question, problem, or challenge. Rigorous projects help students learn key academic content and practice 21st Century Skills (such as collaboration, communication & critical thinking).
If we teach today as we taught yesterday, we rob our children of tomorrow.
-John Dewey
"Do not confine your children to your own learning, for they were born in another time."
-Chinese Proverb
This is where we can get stuck at the lowest level of Bloom's Taxonomy. The students simply memorize for the test, regurgitate the information, and start to memorize for the next test.
How can we use 21st Century Skills to improve our students' academic learning experiences and at the same time support core values of Episcopal Identity?
Driving Question:
21st Century
Without Tech
Our students will have computers in their pockets for the rest of their lives.
We need to teach with that in mind.

Thank You!
What happens next?
The lesson must build upon something they already know
Are you a "dispenser of information" or an "orchestrator of learning"?
If we continue to do things that we already know aren’t working, we have to consider just who really has the learning problem.
