The 21st Century Centurion: 21st Century Questions - 0 views

  • The report extended literacy to “Five New Basics” - English, mathematics, science, social studies, and computer science. A Nation At Risk specified that all high school graduates should be able to “understand the computer as an information, computation and communication device; students should be able to use the computer in the study of the other Basics and for personal and work-related purposes; and students should understand the world of computers, electronics, and related technologies."That was 1983 - twenty- six years ago. I ask you, Ben: Has education produced students with basic knowledge in the core disciplines and computer science TODAY? Are we there yet? OR - are we still at risk for not producing students with the essential skills for success in 1983?

      I had never really considered this before...how computer science has been totally left out of the equaltion....why is that? Cost of really delivering this would be enormous -- think how much money the districts would have to pour into the school systems.
  • On June 29, 1996, the U. S. Department of Education released Getting America's Students Ready for the 21st Century; Meeting the Technology Literacy Challenge, A Report to the Nation on Technology and Education. Recognizing the rapid changes in workplace needs and the vast challenges facing education, the Technology Literacy Challenge launched programs in the states that focused on a vision of the 21st century where all students are “technologically literate.” Four goals, relating primarily to technology skills, were advanced that focused specifically on: 1.) Training and support for teachers; 2.) Acquisition of multimedia computers in classrooms; 3.) Connection to the Internet for every classroom; and 4.) Acquiring effective software and online learning resources integral to teaching the school's curriculum.

      we are really stuck here....the training and support -- the acquisition of hardware, connectivity etc.
  • Our profession is failing miserably to respond to twenty-six years of policy, programs and even statutory requirements designed to improve the ability of students to perform and contribute in a high performance workplace. Our students are losing while we are debating.

  • In 2007, The Report of the NEW Commission on the Skills of the American Workforce: Tough Choices or Tough Times made our nation hyperaware that "World market professionals are available in a wide range of fields for a fraction of what U.S. professionals charge." Guess what? While U.S. educators stuck learned heads in the sand, the world's citizens gained 21st century skills! Tough Choices spares no hard truth: "Our young adults score at “mediocre” levels on the best international measure of performance." Do you think it is an accident that the word "mediocre" is used? Let's see, I believe we saw it w-a-a-a-y back in 1983 when A Nation At Risk warned of a "tide of mediocrity." Tough Choices asks the hard question: "Will the world’s employers pick U.S. graduates when workers in Asia will work for much less? Then the question is answered. Our graduates will be chosen for global work "only if the U.S. worker can compete academically, exceed in creativity, learn quickly, and demonstrate a capacity to innovate." There they are

      This is exactly what dawns on students when they realize what globalization means for them..the incredibly stiff competition that it is posed to bring about.

    Crowd science or citizen science. The idea is to unlock thorny research projects by tapping the time and enthusiasm of the general public. In just the last few years, crowd science projects have generated notable contributions to fields as disparate as ecology, AIDS research, and astronomy. The average layperson becomes a part of a scientific team.

    What is a Social Security Number? The Social Security Administration (SSA) of the United States issues social security numbers (SSNs), which are nine-digit identifying numbers. In addition to being used as an identity number for many other uses, the number is used to monitor people for tax purposes. Buy SSN Number The first social security numbers were given in 1936 after the Social Security Act was passed in 1935. The number has three components: an area number with the first three digits, a group number with the next two digits, and a serial number with the final four digits. Based on the zip code of the person's postal address, the SSA assigns the area number. The serial number is assigned consecutively within each group, and the group number is assigned at random. An individual receives the number when they make a social security card application. A social security number can be obtained without having a social security card. The number is primarily used for tax purposes, but many companies and government organizations also use it as an identifying number. Buy SSN Number What is the history of the SSN number? The nine-digit social security number (SSN) is given to citizens, lawful permanent residents, and temporary (working) residents of the United States in order to keep track of their income and confirm their identification. SSNs are issued by the Social Security Administration (SSA). Buy SSN Number The SSN was created with the intention of giving the government a method to monitor citizens' wages and disburse subsidies accordingly. In 1936, the first SSNs were distributed. Only approximately 20 million individuals had them at the time. In the 1960s, the SSN gained in significance when the government started utilizing it to keep track of a person's Medicare coverage. The SSN replaced other identifiers as the principal one for tax reasons in the 1970s. The SSN also took over as the de facto national identity number in the 1980s. Why do we need a Soc
