21st Century Skills

Grant Lichtman - Denver TED Talk

We want to disrupt the industrial mindset of education to create lots of little workers. Teachers who want to develop students who can solve problems and answer questions rather than follow lots of routine activities.

Bad news:
Schools are not very good at innovation.
 - competing intersets
 - risk adverse
- they struggle with change and innovation

Good News:

Schools down the road have some of the answers but we need to make connections with them and share our progress.
Institutional change is uncomfortable, complicated and messy but not hard in comparison to other things in life!
Schools are becoming dynamic, messy and chaotic as a result of student ownership of learning, permeable, adaptive, self correcting - authentic reflection.
