More than 1,442 new books are published ……….… Daily.

It’s estimated that a week’s worth of New York Times . . .

Contains more information than a person was likely to come across in a lifetime in the 18th century.

It’s estimated that 1.5 exabytes (that’s 1.5 x 1018) of unique new information will be generated worldwide this year.

That’s estimated to be more than in the previous 5,000 years.

The amount of new technical information is doubling every 2 years.

That means for a student starting a four-year technical or college degree . . .

Half of what they learn in their first year of study will be outdated by their third year of study.

“Young People Urgently Need New Skills to Succeed in the Global Economy”

  • Headline in the news Nov. 6. 2006

Technology has become an indispensable tool in the education of today’s students.( Netday survey, 2005)

Today’s students may not be well suited to the more linear progression of learning that most educators employ.( Mark Prensky)

Students think differently than us..they develop hypertext minds…they leap around..their cognative structures are parallel not sequential.( Mark Prenskey )

Alan November….“We need to emphasized the necessity of students learning with others around the world and stress that 3 skills are needed to teach our children.”

“We need to teach our students to deal with massive amounts of information.”

2. “We need to teach our students global communication, starting with Kindergarten.”

3. “We need to teach our students to be self-directed and understand how to organize more and more of their own learning.”

“We can’t avoid learning these tools. We can’t walk away from this”-Alan November

But… I have a question…

Do our students know how to deal with the massive amounts of information?

Have we changed our teaching methods to reflect new technology?

Do our students know how to communicate globally?

Do our students understand how to be self-directed and how to organize their own learning?

“The fact is, our young people are woefully under prepared for the demands of today’s workplace,” said Ken Kay, President of the Partnership for 21st Century Skills

“We can’t solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.”- Albert Einstein

What does it all mean?

Shift Happens.

Now you know . . .

The people who will collaborate, create large storehouses of information, learn about ourselves and our world, change our relationship to technology, and re-write the paradigms of how things work will take years to process. The people who will understand this best are probable just being born.Dan Gillmor.

“What needs to change about our curriculum when our students have the ability to reach audiences far beyond our classroom walls?Will Richardson, 2006

“How do we prepare our students to become not only readers and writers, but editors and collaborators as well?”Will Richardson, 2006

There is much reason to believe their implementation in schools will better prepare students for a slew of new illiteracies and competencies in their post-education lives. (Will Richardson, 2006)

The past 25 years in technology have been the warm-up act. What we are now entering is the MAIN EVENT which is the era in which technology will truly transform every aspect of business, government, education and society of life. ( Carly Fiorina, former- CEO of HP)

The $100 laptop project is expecting to ship between 50 and 100 million laptops a year to children in underdeveloped countries.

Predictions are that by 2013 a supercomputer will be built that exceeds the computation capability of the HumanBrain . . .

According to the U.S. Department of Labor . . .

1 out of 4 workers today is working for a company they have been employed by for less than one year.

More than 1 out of 2 are working for a company they have worked for for less than five years.
