21
1 out of 4 workers today is working for a company
they have been employed by for less than one year.
22
More than 1 out of 2 are working for a company

23
According to former Secretary of Education
Richard Riley . . .
24
The top 10 in-demand jobs in 2010 didnt exist in
2004.
25
We are currently preparing students for jobs that
dont yet exist . . .
26
Using technologies that havent been invented . .
.
27
In order to solve problems we dont even know are
problems yet.
28
Name this country . . .
29
  • Richest in the World
  • Largest Military
  • Center of world business and finance
  • Strongest education system
  • World center of innovation and invention
  • Currency the world standard of value
  • Highest standard of living

30
England.
31
In 1900.
32
Did you know . . .
33
The U.S. is 20th in the world in broadband
Internet penetration.(Luxembourg just passed us.)
34
In 2002 alone Nintendo invested more than 140
million in research and development.
35
The U.S. Federal Government spent less than half
as much on Research and Innovation.
36
1 out of every 8 couples married in the U.S. last
year met online.
37
There are over 100 million registered users of
MySpace.(August 2006)
38
The average MySpace page is visited 30 times a
day.
39
Did you know . . .
40
We are living in exponential times.
41
There are over 2.7 billion searches performed on
Google each month.
42
To whom were these questions addressed
B.G.?(Before Google)
43
The number of text messages sent and received
every day exceeds the population of the planet.
44
There are about 540,000 words in the English
language . . .
45
About 5 times as many as during Shakespeares
time.
46
More than 3,000 new books are published . . .
47
Daily.
48
Its estimated that a weeks worth of New York
Times . . .
49
Contains more information than a person was
likely to come across in a lifetime in the 18th
century.
50
Its estimated that 1.5 exabytes (thats 1.5 x
1018) of unique new information will be generated
worldwide this year.
51
Thats estimated to be more than in the previous
5,000 years.
52
The amount of new technical information is
doubling every 2 years.
53
That means for a student starting a four-year
technical or college degree . . .
54
Half of what they learn in their first year of
study will be outdated by their third year of
study.
55
Its predicted to double every 72 hours by 2010.
56
Third generation fiber optics has recently been
separately tested by NEC and Alcatel . . .
57
That pushes 10 trillion bits per second down one
strand of fiber.
58
Thats 1,900 CDs or 150 million simultaneous
phone calls every second.
59
Its currently tripling about every 6 months and
is expected to do so for at least the next 20
years.
60
The fiber is already there, theyre just
improving the switches on the ends. Which means
the marginal cost of these improvements is
effectively 0.
61
Predictions are thate-paper will be cheaper than
real paper.
62
47 million laptops were shipped worldwide last
year.
63
The 100 laptop project is expecting to ship
between 50 and 100 million laptops a year to
children in underdeveloped countries.
64
Predictions are that by 2013 a supercomputer will
be built that exceeds the computation capability
of the HumanBrain . . .
65
By 2023, a 1,000 computer will exceed the
capabilities of the Human Brain . . .
66
First grader Abby will be just 23 years old and
beginning her (first) career . . .
67
And while technical predictions farther out than
about 15 years are hard to do . . .
68
Predictions are that by 2049 a 1,000 computer
will exceed the computational capabilities of the
human race.
69
What does it all mean?
