THE CHANGING WORLD (Ed Barlow,
www.creatingthefuture.com)
  • 75 of the current world wealth creation is human
    capital.
  • In ten years, knowledge will double every year.
  • 25 of the work in this country can be done by
    anyone, anywhere.

5
THE CHANGING WORLD (Ed Barlow,
www.creatingthefuture.com)
  • After defense, the most critical challenge facing
    this country is developing a competitive
    workforce.
  • 30 years from now, we will need three planet
    earths to meet the natural resource needs of
    China alone.

6
  • The oil industry is the only one that can raise
    prices to maintain profitability others must
    lower costs and add value to survive.
  • The birthrate in industrialized nations has
    decreased resulting in an aging population and
    worker shortage.
  • 70 of the worlds purchasing power is in
    non-English speaking countries.

7
  • We will need to double global food production by
    2525.
  • Outsourcing saves manufacturers 15-25 in costs.
  • Water supply is becoming a problem in the United
    States choice between food or a shower.

8
  • We will live or die by how we deal with the
    environment and use available natural resources.
  • We are becoming a molecular manipulation economy.
  • And the list goes on and on.

Employer Perspectives
  • Are They Ready To Work?
  • Employers perspectives on the Basic knowledge
    and applied skills of new entrants to the 21st
    Century U.S. Workforce (2006)
  • National Survey sponsored by
  • The Conference Board
  • Partnership for 21st Century Skills
  • Corporate Voices for Working Families
  • Society for Human Resource Management

10

into the 21st century workplace

  • Number of respondents varied for each question,
    ranging from 352-356.

11
Top five basic knowledge skills for successful
entry into the 21st century workplace

12
Unfortunately, employers report that over 40 of
new entrants with a high school diploma are
deficient in their overall preparation for
entry-level jobs.
13
High School Graduates are
  • Deficient in the basic knowledge and skills
    of Writing in English, Mathematics, and Reading
    Comprehension
  • Deficient in Written Communications and
    Critical Thinking/Problem Solving, both of
    which may be dependent on basic knowledge and
    skills,
  • Deficient in Professionalism/Work Ethic and,
  • Adequate in three very important applied
    skills Information Technology Application,
    Diversity, and Teamwork/Collaboration.

14
Not only has the world and workplace changed, but
so have our students.
  • They are
  • digital natives
  • wired differently neurologically
  • instant messenger generation
  • multi-taskers

15
Todays students are fundamentally different
from previous generations in the way they think
in the way they access, absorb, interpret,
process and use information and in the way they
view, interact and communicate in and with the
modern world.
Ian Jukes
16
  • Both the changes in the world and our students
    have profound implications for us as educators
    because while these changes were occurring, many
    schools have remained relatively unchanged!

17
Given all of this,What are our options?
18
In RealityOur Options Are Limited!
  • We must re-examine -
  • What we do and answer three basic questions
  • What do we expect students to know and be able to
    do? (Curriculum)
  • How will we know if they have learned it? Or, a
    better question is, what can they do with what
    they have learned? (Assessment)
  • What do we do if they dont? (Instruction)

19
We must collectively defined our destination as
the development of a world class workforce.Then,
we must take the journey!
20
In West Virginia, we believe the answer lies in
21st Century Teaching and Learning as defined by
the partnership for 21st Century Skills.

41
Lets Recap!
42
21st Century Learning has become the basis of
many changes and new initiatives in Career and
Technical Education in West Virginia over the
coming past two years and into the foreseeable
future.
43
Implications for Career Technical
Education For years, CTE juggled
44
with a single ball.
Traditional CTE focused on teaching technical
skillsand we did a good job!
45
Then we were asked to reinforce academic skills
through technical content.
46
Juggling with two balls was more difficult than
one
47
but were getting better at it.
48
And yet
49
there is still a profound gap between the
knowledge and skills most students learn in
school and those they need in 21st century
communities and workplaces.
50
We know that to be successful in the 21st
century, students need more than technical and
academic skills.
51
They need 21st century skills
52
Thus, we must learn to juggle
with three balls
53
  • By the age of 21, this digital generation will
    have spent less than 5,000 hours reading books,
    less than 9,000 hours attending school, and more
    than 10,000 hours playing video games.

54
Its not easy to get their attention because they
are juggling too!
55
PDAs
cell phones
digital cameras
text messaging
podcasts
Internet
MySpace
computers
MP3 players
video games
YouTube
email
56
learn to juggle.
57
Its time schools reflected the rest of our
students lives.
  • Thanks and have a great conference!
