Education Training
  • In Colorado, Low Skills Low Wages

Educational Needs
  • Baby Boomers aging- not retiring but working part
    time or trying new careers. (I didnt retire
    because I was tired, I just need to be
    re-planted) ,Jack Welch CEO of GE and CBS
  • Retraining and capturing their knowledge.
  • New generations are delaying going to college.
    New work force less educated that the previous.
  • Education needed for technical jobs.

Need for Reform
2006 was defined by
  • Google
  • The World is Flat- Thomas Freidman
  • George Lucas Educational Foundation, Bill Gates,
    Steve Jobs
  • Natural disasters (Katrina)
  • Wars (materials and equipment)
  • Blogs
  • iPods and Podcasting
  • A dramatic influx of new technologies designed to
    give us freedom and control of our lives

Why Career and Technical Education?
It takes 15 years to create a scientist or
advanced engineer!
We should be embarking on an all-hands-on-deck,
no-holds-bared, no-budget-tolarge crash program
for science and engineering careers education
program Thomas L. Friedman The World is Flat
Reading in America
  • Consider the following statistics
  • Only 14 of adults with a grade school education
    read literature in 2002.
  • 51 of the American population never reads a book
    over 400 pages after they complete their formal
  • 73 of all books in libraries are never checked
  • The average American watches 32 hours of TV every
  • The average American reads only eight hours
    (books, newspapers, magazines, Yellow Pages,
    etc.) every week.
  • The average American annually spends ten times
    more on what he puts on his head than what puts
    into his head.

Reading in America
  • Consider the following
  • If you read just one book per month for 12
    straight months, you will be in the top 25
    percentile of all intellectuals in the world!
  • If you read five books on one subject, you are
    one of the worlds foremost leading authorities
    on that subject!
  • If you read just 15 minutes a day every day,
    for one year you can complete 20 books!

Technology is Changing Us and our Needs
BenQ-Siemens P5 Pocket PC Phone with Skype
  • Portable computing with all the services

  • 7.3 Billion Text messages in six months of 2005
  • MP3 recorders in the classroom
  • Cameras (Digital and Phone)
  • IPods (University) Instant video connections
  • Mobil Technology (everything on your cell phone)
  • Blogs (MySpace, newspapers)

20439 Days
New Communication
Why Change?
  • When handwritten essays were introduced on the
    SAT exams for the class of 2006, just 15 percent
    of the almost 1.5 million students wrote their
    answers in cursive. The rest? They printed. Block

"Cell phone customers who text are good at
getting their thoughts down in concise fashion,"
said Charles Golvin, an analyst at Forrester
Research. "People think of it as meaningless
conversation and chatter, but ... it's an
extremely efficient form of communication."
How do we test them on CSAP?
Methods of Teaching Technology
Podcasts are digital files that can be accessed
through the Internet and downloaded onto a
computer or MP3 player. Professors can record
lectures as they speak during class or prepare
supplementary information and upload to a server,
such as their class Web site, for free. Students
can then access the file and play it as often as
they like.
Pros Helps students study better
Convenient access to lectures Ability to
repeat difficult portions Cons Temptation to
skip class Diminished vitality of in-class
debates Questions whether podcasting lectures
contributes to learning
Part 1 An Introduction to Podcasting Find out
what podcasting is all about and how you and your
students can create your own podcasts. Part 2
Meeting Standards with Podcasting Educators
across the nation are using podcasting in their
classrooms for language arts, language
acquisition, and social studies.
Part 3 An Administrators View on
Podcasting School administrators are looking at
podcasting as a great way to communicate with
students, teachers, parents, and their community.
Technology Education Needs
  • Nano Technology
  • Communications Technologies (Wireless Technology
    Access everywhere WIMAX)
  • Alternative Energies
  • Alternative Fuels Micro Fuel Cell (Toshiba 2008)
    Replace Batteries)
  • Hydrogen Fuel cells
  • Work force needed (Science, engineering based
    (technicians), technical, and non-off shoring
    service jobs)
  • TV shows determining are hot programs
  • Welding (Junk yard, biker shows),
  • Business (Apprentice),
  • Culinary Arts (Cooking shows),
  • Health care (ER, Greys Anatomy)
  • Music

Toshiba Fuel Cells
Toshiba announces a prototype of a Fuel Cell MP3
Player. This Toshiba MP3 player is powered by a
Methanol Fuel Cell. There is actually a Flash
based MP3 player and a HDD based player. The HDD
based Player has a 10ml fuel tank, which provides
for a 60 hour play time. The Flash MP3 Player has
a 3.5ml tank that holds for 35 hours.
Waiting for approval to use in these in the
passenger compartment of airplanes! 2006
Technology Education Needs
  • High Tech Service occupations in high demand! (4
    out of the 5 jobs needed in 10 years does not
    exist today)
  • These are jobs that cannot be off-shored or
  • Needed to support our communities
  • Example Electricians needed for Colorado
    Project- loss of 175 million.

Near Future Needs
  • By 2010, personal transportation devices will be
    all the rage, and electric shoes with built-in
    roller-skates will be gaining much of the
    attention. After nine years of heavy media
    coverage, the Segway Human Transporter will begin
    to gain serious market share.
  • By 2015, traditional gas-powered autos will
    start to decline with electric automobiles and
    hybrids taking up most of the slack.

The Power Industry
  • Electric vehicles will start to make major market
    inroads around 2015 because of improved battery
    technologies and because of the fact that the
    electric infrastructure is already in place for
    rapid "refueling." Hydrogen will make some
    inroads but will not become anything more than a
    niche industry.
  • The automotive industry will make a near-complete
    transition to binary power as a principle source
    of vehicular power.
  • Space-based power stations will be operational,
    supplying a significant percentage of the world's
    power needs.
  • Nearly all light bulbs will have disappeared,
    replaced with binary power creating points of
    light in space.

Binary power
  • The friction-free no-moving-parts vehicles will
    run on what we call "binary power." Binary power
    is the concept where two otherwise harmless beams
    of energy will intersect at some point in space
    creating a source of power.
  • To better explain binary power, think in terms of
    two invisible beams intersecting in a room and
    the point at which they intersect is a glowing
    point of light. Yes, binary power eventually will
    replace all light bulbs. And lest you think it
    can only be used for intense forms of power, it
    also will be used to create "points" of sound,
    eliminating the need for speakers and headphones.

Near Future Needs
  • By 2020, we will see an industry being built up
    around self-illuminating highways - highways that
    glow in the dark. "Glow roads" will dramatically
    change the nighttime aesthetics of major cities
    and will be shown to improve driving safety at
    night and reduce the need for streetlights.
  • With GPS guidance systems and controls there will
    be no need for traffic courts

Near Future Needs
  • Around 2030 we will see commercialization of the
    first friction-free, no-moving-parts flying
    vehicles, which will be considered by many to be
    the ultimate freedom machine. Much like the
    transition from analog to digital in the world of
    information technology, the study of traditional
    mechanics and traditional aerodynamics will be
    replaced with a new physics governing vehicular

"Mark my word A combination airplane and
motorcar is coming. You may smile. But it will
come..." Henry Ford, Chairman, Ford Motor
The emerging space industry
By 2050
  • Frictionless engines will form the basis of new
    propulsion systems for space travel.
  • We will have fully functioning space elevators
    operating at full capacity, moving both people
    and supplies into space.
  • More than 1 million people will have visited the
  • Several dozen space hotels will have made a major
    impact on tourism with growing numbers of people
    opting for the "sleeping with the stars" vacation
  • Several space stations will have been started as
    small working cities to build the next generation
    of space-based industries.

Space Elevator
Carbon nanotubes
  • The space elevator would ferry satellites,
    spaceships, and pieces of space stations into
    space using electric lifts clamped to the ribbon,
    serving as a means for commerce, scientific
    advancement, and exploration.
  • The discovery of carbon nanotubes and the ongoing
    development to implement them into a composite is
    the key to space elevator viability being
    achieved in the coming years.

today have to be employable for life. We have to
teach them to be able to change and be prepared!
