Four Imperatives for 21st Century Learning
  • Compete Globally
  • Kids are different and learn differently
  • Kids are bored, not engaged
  • The Creativity Crisis
compete globally who
Compete Globally – Who?
  • It’s not just about us -- the U.S.A. or Canada
  • It’s about our students
  • It’s 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.
  • "What’s 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 Treffinger’s Creative Problem-Solving method and other creativity pedagogies. “The creative problem-solving program has the highest success in increasing children’s creativity,” observed William & Mary’s Kim."

The three “R”s and the four “C”s

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.

slide15

At the core is a student-centered, project- and problem-based teaching strategy that is tied to both content standards and schoolwide learning outcomes.

project and problem based learning keys to 21st century learning
Project- and Problem-Based LearningKeys to 21st Century Learning
  • 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.

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 Tech’s strategy is simple:

slide17

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.

slide18

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.

slide19

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.

slide20

Students experiment and apply learning.

Students test their ideas and experiment to find solutions and breakthroughs while receiving ongoing feedback from instructors.

slide21

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.

slide22

Students prepare to present.

Students work on building presentations to represent their work and defend

their solutions.

slide23

Students present their solutions!

Students present ideas through debates, skits, panels, presentations where their work is evaluated by peers, teachers, parents, and community.
