The Intellectual and Policy Foundation of the 21st Century Skills FrameworkTheory, research, and policy that support the 21st Century Skills Framework is based on the connection between societal demand and educational response as well as the effects of advances in learning science and learning technology.We must restore to our schools the skills that future citizens will need to succeed in the worlds of work, higher education, and personal life.We must also consider that technology needs to also connect students with the information, people, and real world contexts that will inspire and engage them throughout the entire curriculum.

Creativity and InnovationOverviewSchools are Killing Creativity Sir Ken Robinson

Poll Daddy Creativity Survey


Schools are Killing CreativitySir Ken RobinsonCreativity is as important as literacyIt is the gift of human imaginationAccording to Picasso, all are born artists but few remain artists as they grow up. Students get educated out of it. Education has established a hierarchy of subjects (Math/languages, humanities, arts to include art/music, drama, and dance) so that education is based on academic ability but why? All should be equally important. We need to educate the whole being so they can face the future, whatever that looks like 50 years from nowEngage students in divergent thinking such as asking them to see connections, identify/create metaphors, look for many answers, reinterpret ones.Intelligence is:Diverse (visual, auditory, kinesthetic)Dynamic (we see things differently)Distinct (epiphany moment-not ADHD but Dancer ex.)

Poll Daddy Creativity SurveyTen Mental Blocks to Creative Thinking1. Trying to find the right answers2. Logical thinking3. Following rules4. Being Practical5. Play is not work6. Thats not my job7. Be a serious person8. Avoid ambiguity9. Being wrong is bad10. Im not creativeThe results of my survey were in agreement with the rest of the class in 6 areas. I was usually the one or two far from the pack on #1, 2, 4, and 5. I realize that I have been trying to develop the creative side, I am still a traditional learner. In my k-12 education, Math had always been my strength, looking for that one logical right answer. Now that I have taught Reading and English for 25 years, I have begun to develop my right brain, my creative side. I am glad to know the four areas I can focus on before I retire!


Are you Innovation Inept?

Thinking about innovation isnt the same as innovative thinking.

What is really needed for innovation to happen is a combination of:Motivation-to make the effort in the first placeFreedom-to explore and express without the fear of reprisalSystems-for sharing, developing, and promoting ideas throughout an organizationKnowledge-talent and skills required to actually transform an idea into a viable plan and, ultimately, a realityResponsibility-for ensuring that it all happens
