|Warm Up for Module 1|
Learners will analyze the skills that business and industry tell us are necessary for 21st Century workers.
Watch Did You Know 2014.
Then choose one of these versions of this video to watch:
Compare the 2014 version to the other video you watched. What is the same and what is different (new information in the 2014 version)?
There are several versions of this video on You Tube, and all are already outdated; however it is worth reflecting on this video as a framework for this course. What are the implications of living in exponential times for our educational system? To what extent are we preparing our students to compete for the jobs of the future? What are the implications for our country, our localities, our citizens? How can we, as educators, best prepare our students to thrive in the 21st Century global economy? Jot down your thoughts, and keep them with you as you proceed through this course. Take time throughout this course to reflect back on these thoughts and consider how we, as 21st Century educators can better meet the needs of our students.
