Title: The 21st Century, Knowledge Age School


1
The 21st Century, Knowledge Age School
  • Our Future

Go direct to full site
2
The 21st Century, Knowledge Age School
  • Our present school system will not provide the
    knowledge or skills our citizens will need for
    the 21st Century.
  • We need a pilot 21st Century Knowledge Age
    School.
  • Now.

3
The 21st Century, Knowledge Age (KA) School
  • Why?
  • The Educational Reasons
  • one third of Ontarios elementary students fail
    to meet the provincial standards of literacy and
    numeracy
  • one quarter of high school students drop out
    before graduation a further one quarter of the
    students are arguably undereducated.
  • one third of the Toronto students have no
    academic help outside the classroom.

The 21st Century, Knowledge Age School
  • Why?
  • The Economic Reasons
  • Manufacturing and Web 1.0 technology (20 of
    wealth base and diminishing) has moved to Mexico,
    China and India.
  • Natural resources (10 of wealth base) are
    depleting and are more costly to harvest in a
    Green era, but will help in the short term.
  • Service sector (70 of wealth base) is the
    potential remaining source for new long term
    wealth generation. Different skills and knowledge
    are required to build wealth in this sector.
  • The old era is over
  • Shift Happens

5
The 21st Century, Knowledge Age School
  • Does that mean were lost? No.
  • Fareed Zakaria
  • Because we have
  • The foundation, funding and tradition of
    universal, compulsory, public education
  • A diverse, multi-cultural and very ambitious
    population with major links to most other nations
  • An economy that can support the transformation
    better than in most other countries
  • No other country, except for the USA, is ahead
    of us so far.

6
The 21st Century, Knowledge Age School

What are these skills for the 21st Century?
Why cant schools just adapt to them?
7
The 21st Century, Knowledge Age School
  • The 21st Century skills
  • Ken Kay
  • Mastery of core skills and content
  • Team work, partnerships and collaboration
  • Critical thinking and analytical skills
  • Problem solving skills
  • Creative and innovative approaches
  • Superior personal and technical communication
    skills
  • Flexible organization skills
  • Personal management skills
  • Comfortably operating in a Web 2.0, 3.0 and
    future electronic environments
  • Global awareness and understanding
  • Its not about laptops. It's about
    shouldertops.

8
The 21st Century, Knowledge Age School
  • Why cant the schools just change to meet the new
    needs?
  • Because teachers are mandated first and foremost
    to deliver subjects to classes of students
    and only incidentally to build learning, solving
    and co-operative skills even among themselves.
  • Because content is the master, not the
    servant.
  • Because most of the requisite 21st Century
    skills and technology are inconsequential in
    schools.

9
The 21st Century, Knowledge Age School
  • Inconsequential?
  • Key 21st Century skills that are presently
    incidental or not commonly counted for marks
  • Collaboration/ teamwork/partnerships
  • Most Web 2.0 programs and devices
  • Team self-directed program organization
  • Group problem solving for marks
  • Schedule outside of timetabled subject classes
  • Innovative/creative thinking
  • Skills in Web 2.0 world
  • Global awareness and understanding
  • Learning is still a personal contract between
    individual teachers and students, K to 25.

10
The 21st Century, Knowledge Age School
  • But there are all sorts of reformed, alternative
    schools and/or programs
  • Arts
  • Athletics
  • GBLT diverse gender identity
  • Sleep deprived
  • Optional attendance
  • Single sex
  • Africentric
  • Individually timetabled
  • Distance
  • These are socially reconfigured schools, not
    educationally reformed.
  • Educational reform is creating a new system, no
    matter what the social configuration.

11
The 21st Century, Knowledge Age School
