21st Century Learning
Examples of 21st Learning Experiences
Where Learning Has Been
How does Partnering Happen?
Looks different than previous learning models...
It will require rewiring current methods
Understanding that technology is constantly changing...
Seeing the world and changing how students and teachers...
Make the instruction richer together as partners
We began with the Industrial Revolution
Early educators moved slowly through the material because the world...
was dominated by an agriculture based economy
Students needs were simple and straight forward
The world began to change...
but as the world changed, education remained static.
"Academic content is not very useful in and of itself. It is knowing how to apply it in new situations or to new problems that matters most in the world of innovation." Ed Carryer, Stanford(Wagner, 2012. pg. 52)
How does education change to meet this new need?
According to many experts, education must allow students the freedom of choice. Choice to make decisions, work with others, and meet a higher standard.
"Corporate trainers as well as many educational reformers, have long described the change we are talking about for teachers as a move from being the 'sage on the stage' to the 'guide on the side'"(Prensky, 2010. pg.33).
"We know we must respect and learn from the past. But if the future isn't getting equal time in our education, we are selling our students terribly short" (Prensky, 2010. pg5).
Giving children a chance to create and express with purpose.
Each year these children have picked a country to explore. They create skits, food, ambiance, and costumes that support their experience. They then present this information to their grandparents each summer.
Chez Peanut Germany
Chez Peanut Polynesia
Chez Peanut Argentina
Chez Peanut Greece
The children found pictures of German towns, drew them on canvas, painted the scenes, and hung them for ambiance.
Part of the budget including designing costumes representative of the culture.
Each child had to create a part according to their capabilities.
They performed traditional folktales.
Dry rehearsals were run closer to the final production date.
Not only did they research, write, and create their material, they were all involved with preparation and clean up.
Each year they gained more responsibilities.
Increased confidence and presentation skills were noted.
Each year they developed their skills and produced props that they created with household items to represent the cultural pieces they had researched.
They added geography, pictures, programs and many more items as they developed over the years.
Presentation of the cuisine most popular to the country they studied became a masterful component.
They prepared the menu, figured out how much to make and sat as the experts to discuss what had been made and how the cuisine was a part of the countries culture.
They began to share in the presentations. Collaboration grew as they matured.
They helped the younger members learn the tricks of the trade .
While researching Greece, this child fell in love with the idea of the Greeks and the Olympics. She chose to have togas and tiaras as one of their costume changes.
Chez peanut was a project based learning idea that incorporated the CCSS ideals and it paid off.
They learned how to perform tasks outside of education and absorb life skills to help them in the future.
Each child has participated in a sport. This has helped in building teamwork and leadership skills.
They have all made great strides using all their skills.
They volunteer in many ways. They helped a friend starting a new business at a trade show.
They helped with setting up the booth
They represented the product.
They learned to be salesmen!
Every member became more involved as they grew older.
Most importantly they have been allowed to explore...
and gain hands on knowledge through a variety of experiences.
We give students a solid foundation.
The foundation will help set the stage...
for a variety of experiences
that will lead to success and...
keep them engaged and thirsting for knowledge.
