Four Imperatives for 21st Century Learning
  • Compete Globally
  • Kids are different and learn differently
  • Kids are bored, not engaged
  • The Creativity Crisis

4
Compete Globally Who?
  • Its not just about us -- the U.S.A. or Canada
  • Its about our students
  • Its about my daughter or son!

  • Creativity Producing something original and
    useful
  • Kim found creativity scores had been steadily
    rising, just like IQ scores, until 1990. Since
    then, creativity scores have consistently inched
    downward.
  • "Whats common about successful programs is they
    alternate maximum divergent thinking with bouts
    of intense convergent thinking, through several
    stages," the authors write, and cite schools like
    the new National Inventors Hall of Fame Middle
    School in Akron, Ohio "With as much as three
    fourths of each day spent in project-based
    learning, principal Buckner and her team actually
    work through required curricula, carefully
    figuring out how kids can learn it through the
    steps of Treffingers Creative Problem-Solving
    method and other creativity pedagogies. The
    creative problem-solving program has the highest
    success in increasing childrens creativity,
    observed William Marys Kim."

The three Rs and the four Cs
We must fuse the three Rs with the four Cs.
  • The four Cs
  • Critical thinking and problem solving
  • Communication
  • Collaboration
  • Creativity and innovation

As the three Rs serve as an umbrella for other
subjects, the four Cs do for other skills.

At the core is a student-centered, project- and
problem-based teaching strategy that is tied to
both content standards and schoolwide learning
outcomes.
16
Project- and Problem-Based Learning Keys to 21st
Century Learning
NTHS teachers start each unit by throwing
students into a realistic or real-world project
that both engages interest and generates a list
of things the students need to know. Projects are
designed to tackle complex problems, requiring
critical thinking. New Techs strategy is simple
  • To learn collaboration, work in teams.
  • To learn critical thinking, take on complex
    problems.
  • To learn oral communication, present.
  • To learn written communication, write.
  • To learn technology, use technology.
  • To develop citizenship, take on civic and global
    issues.
  • To learn about careers, do internships.
  • To learn content, research, and do all of the
    above.

17
Each unit begins when students are presented with
a complex, standards-based problem.
Students form a team, develop a work contract,
and build a work plan.
18
Students get to work!
Students are provided an online briefcase
specific to the project with information,
resources, links, and assessment criteria that
help guide them.
19
Students need to know.
Student questions and need to knows drive
classroom lectures and activities. Sometimes for
the whole class, sometimes for just one student.
20
Students experiment and apply learning.
Students test their ideas and experiment to find
solutions and breakthroughs while receiving
ongoing feedback from instructors.
21
Students get back to work!
Students work and collaborate in a business-like
environment, where they know their deliverables
and have the technology tools to do their jobs.
22
Students prepare to present.
Students work on building presentations to
represent their work and defend their solutions.
23
Students present their solutions!
Students present ideas through debates, skits,
panels, presentations where their work is
evaluated by peers, teachers, parents, and
community.

Some Cautionary Tales Its about a lot more than
design and technology.
  • UK open learning environments (1970s)
  • Massachusetts new high schools (mid-1990s)
  • NW England new learning centres

Are teachers ready to teach in the new learning
environments?
55
Putting It All Together
  • PBL curriculum and pedagogy
  • Assessment for learning
  • Technology
  • Learning spaces and environment
  • Professional development
