results that matter 21st century skills and high school reform
“Results That Matter: 21st Century Skills and High School Reform”

Improving high schools requires the nation to redefine “rigor” to encompass not just mastery of core academic subjects, but also mastery of 21st century skills and content. Rigor must reflect all the results that matter for all high school graduates today. Today’s graduates need to be critical thinkers, problem solvers and effective communicators who are proficient in both core subjects and new, 21st century content and skills. These 21st century skills include learning and thinking skills, information and communications technology literacy skills, and life skills.

slide19

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

slide20

Whole to Part Learning

  • Know/ Need to Know
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 student need to know. Projects are designed to tackle complex problems, requiring critical thinking. New Tech’s strategy is simple:

slide22

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

slide23

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.

slide24

Students Need To Know

Student questions and “need to knows” drive classroom lectures and activities. Sometimes for the whole class … sometime for just one student

slide25

Students experiment and apply learning

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

slide26

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.

slide27

Students prepare to present

Students work on building presentations to repre-sent their work and defend their solutions

slide28

Students present their solutions!

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

slide30

Teachers (project designers) need to:

    • Define the outcomes
    • Develop evaluation tools

Guiding Questions:

How will students demonstrate these skills?

How will we measure these skills?

How will we ensure students reach proficiency in these skills before they graduate?

results that matter
RESULTS THAT MATTER
  • Post-Secondary Success
  • In 2005, Rockman et al conducted a six-month study of Napa New Technology High School (NTHS) alumni (8 graduating classes since opening in 1996). The study gathered feedback from NTHS graduates regarding their postsecondary education and/or career, 21st Century skills, knowledge and use of technology, and on what they valued most about their NTHS experience:
    • 89% of the responding alumni attended a 2-year or 4-year college/university or professional or technical institute.
    • 92% of respondents have applied some or a great deal of what they learned at NTHS to their postsecondary education or career.
    • 96% of the respondents would choose to attend NTHS again.
    • 40% of the alumni respondents were either majoring in STEM fields or were working in STEM professions.
  • High School Success
  • New Tech High School students graduate with a mastery of 21st Century knowledge and skills, prepared for college, career, and citizenship. New Tech High School uses multiple measures to assess student performance and school accountability, including measures of student engagement, academic success, 21st Century skills, and post-secondary success.  NTHS Results that Matter shows high school success data on student achievement, 21st Century Skills, graduation requirements, graduation rates, post-secondary enrollments and STEM Careers, Recognitions, and NTHS Network School Success .
