Essential Question:

How can we prepare students to meet the demands of the 21st century?

  • What skills will they need to succeed?
  • What can we do in our classrooms to equip students with both core competencies and with 21st century skills?


Did you know?

Our country's global economic success in the future depends on K-20 graduates honing their "21st Century Skills." Today's tech-savvy generation has no shortage of user-friendly devices...and they know how to use them. But are they putting these tech skills to good use? You've heard of the 3Rs, but what about the 5Cs such as critical thinking, creative problem solving, communications, collaboration and cross-cultural relationship building?
Beginning in 2012, "tech literacy" will be added to our Nation's Report Card. This means student proficiency in the application of technology will be measured for the first time. It isn't just layering technology over traditional core competencies, though. It's about totally integrating the two for success in an increasingly competitive world.  (Source:  eSchool News)

Today's Learning Task:

  • Collaborate with your team to create a blog post with a visual representation of your groups assigned NETS for Students standard and at least three (3) classroom lessons/activities students can do to progress toward that standard. To get started, with your group...
    1. Select an author for the group--have him or her complete the survey so that I can add you as an author to this blog.
    2. Read and discuss your groups assigned NETS Standard.
    3. Explore the resources below for lesson ideas. Notice how Bloom's connects to NETS.
    4. Create a visual representation of the standard.
      • You could create a Wordle  or an Animoto video or a paper sketch and snap a photo or anything you can imagine  that will transform the key concepts into a visual representation of those ideas.
    5. Work with your group author to craft the blog post, embedding your visual creation into your post and sharing your three lesson ideas. 
      • The hand-out gives step-by-step directions for creating a new post and embedding your visual creation.
      • Also, in the sidebar, there are links to tutorials.
