Transcript of Technology paradigm shift in education

Turning Point? Being aware current education and schooling are
meeting the needs of future learners. Effectively prepare our students for the future they will live in 1898 Sir Joseph John Thomson (1856-1940) discovers the electron

1950 Transistors developed at Bell Labs
1952 Bell shares the technology

1953 First product to use transistor sold: hearing aids
1958 Jack Kilby invents the integrated circuit
1959 Silicon Chip invented by Kilby

1960 First "Mini" Computer
1975 William (Bill) Gates and Paul Allen start Microsoft Corporation
1981 IBM PC; First Space Shuttle launch

1989 World Wide Web begins
1997 Intel Pentium microprocessor produced with 7.5 million transistors;
Motorola develops the thinnest transistor ever
2009 Carbon chip to replace silicon chip
2013 3D chip arrays and Holographic Technology emerging So what's next?..... Photonics A bit of history... Reason 1 Reason 2 Opto-Electronics SSD (solid-state drive) storage now possible on transparent material.
A contact lens capable of 2TB data storage, wireless connectivity, projects a desktop screen into your view, the mouse controlled by your own eyesight. Laser lights capable of carrying 10 trillion bits per second, the equivalent of... 425 DVD's
1 DVD would be filled by 1 secretary typing 100 words per minute, 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, for 60 years. Photonics can carry the equivalent of 425 DVD's per second. Device projection Technology Projects a touch sensitive desktop/image onto any surface... even skin! Now add to the mix Augmented Reality... Educators and students are working hard and achieving little, within a system which is counter-productive for all learners.
The purpose of schooling has rapidly changed and educational policy must adapt and evolve to assist facilitation of a future focused curriculum Then there's medical Nanotechnology to consider... Robots can now attach to a single cell, seek out another defective cell(disease/illness) then eliminate it...
at a cellular level by teaching students transferable skills which can manage and adapt to change How do we achieve it? 21C future focused, integrated contextual skills, replace the out-dated educational focus of 'academic', traditional content-based subjects http://app.fluency21.com/ Has technology changed education? 1) Begin with the brain-Martha Kaulfeldt HBE Conference May 2013 My learning intent;
To focus on two presenters in depth
1) to understand the mechanics of learning; how the brain learns....
2) and to be better informed about what is coming... what the future of education is and how we can best prepare the students for their future The new digital age is here, heralding a future coming at us like a locomotive, ever-changing and always challenging. The children of today are the builders of tomorrow—they both need and deserve a skill set that stresses critical thinking and develops a mindset of discovering innovative solutions to complex problems that haven't even been witnessed yet. We looked at the baseline of the vital 21st Century Fluencies, one that focuses on a creative thought process designed to foster problem-solving skills and a real-time application of the comprehensive 6D model—Define, Discover, Dream, Design, Deliver, and Debrief Main point...
In just the last 6 years technological advances have revealed that our intelligence is not a fixed outcome; we can generate more neurons through exercising our brain 'muscle' No...
Technology has changed our world, but hasn't yet changed the way our students are learning Knowledge was a noun... Now it's a verb!!! Why?.... Things we could do..... timetable/systems/structure-cater for individuals not groups
modern learning environments be strategically planned and rolled out Re-think;
1) Assessment
driving most learning-humanist driver be the joy of learning
be an after-thought (from learners experience)
completed mostly be self and peer 2) Collaboration
with all local schools regularly
partnership and reference groups for coherence curriculum design & development in consultation with local business and industry 3) School systems
Junior school Y7-10 curriculum design in consult with feeder schools, Senior school Y11-13 AS's with ITO's courses and North Canterbury Academy be planned for full integration across faculties Adopt
6D's and 21C
Fluencies 2) Lee Crockett
Living on the Future Edge
