2. Truth Number One There is no escapeThe future of work and learningprocesses/resources aredigital. EC/JC2011 3. Yes, Its Happened Before Our Eyes JPC Sr. 2011 4. Think About ExponentialGrowth Since 1994 the number of web siteshas grown from 5,000 to 250,000,000(50,000 % increase) Distinct content pages now numberin the trillions Every day, Google handles about6,200,000,000 page views andprocesses 20 petabytes of data. 275,000 words are typed everyminute onto blogger And then there is the newest internetmonster Facebook... EC/JC 2011 5. Facebook as the NewInterneto In October 2007, FB had a mere 20 million US users.o Today (as of 1/4/11) it has over 146 million US based users.o That accounts for 70% of all US based internet users. EC/JC2011 6. The World is OneNetwork My youngest son is going to Brazil on a Rotary Exchange. Before he was notified of his placement (Uberlandia) by Rotary officials, he had already spent two hours facebook chatting with the outbound student from that city who knew he was coming and the family he is being placed with and had located him on the network. EC/JC2011 7. Information SharingNetwork 1. Google 6. Baidu.com(A Chinese language search engine) 2. Facebook 7. Blogger.com 3. YouTube8. Wikipedia 4. Yahoo! 9. QQ.COM 5. Windows Live(A Chinese language IM program)(Microsoft search) 10. Twitter EC/JC2011 8. From Passive to Empowered The cell phone has reached 90% of the market faster than any other device in the last 50 years. Nearly half (47%) of US teens say their social life would end or be worsened without their cell phone, and nearly six in 10 (57%) credit their mobile device with improving their life After having his wisdom teeth out in August, my youngest son had to be warned by the nurse that he may not remember what he was texting because of the impact of the anesthesia. EC/JC 2011 9. The King Is Dead, LLTKMore content hours were uploaded to YouTube in 2010than have been broadcast by the three major networks in their entire history.http://www.youtube.com/create EC/JC 2010 10. From Turn the Page to Hit The Button In the second quarter of 2010,Amazon sold 180 KindleEdition Books for every 100hard-covers sold. In the fourth quarter, Kindleeditions outsold paperbacks aswell.

What would yourdistrict/school iPhoneapp have in it? What happens wheneveryone can getanything from anywhere? EC/JC 2010 12. Truth Number TwoYou Cant Learn Without Access Adequatepreparationfor a higher orderthinking digital environment requires one-oneaccess by staff and EC/JC students. 2011 13. It Just Makes Sense One cannot prepare students to master skillsand be informationliterate, independent, higher-order thinkers if theyare not consistently doingmeaningful work with thetools that will help define their success. EC/JC 2011 14. Truth Number ThreeFurther Print Investment is a Waste Continued investment in aprint-based infrastructure and the lack of strategic transitional planning fora complete move to digital are ultimately counterproductive botheducationally and fiscally. EC/JC 2011 15. A Definition of Waste Waste is any action you take in an organization that does not move someone/something in the direction you want to go. Aligned action is the key to organizational success the more you invest in materials, strategies and systems that are counter to the creation of a 21st century learning environment, the longer the transition will take. Every printed page is a waste. EC/JC2011 16. The GoalTo prepare EVERYstudent for learning, life and work in the 21 st century.I believe achieving this goal is the defining challenge of our time.

The Rules of Engagement Engagement + Purpose = Learning1. Each student has learning experiences at intermediate difficulty for that student.2. Expectations for the student are high but achievable for that student.3. Students make decisions about their own learning that lead them to be autonomous learners.4. Students perspectives are valued.5. There is both a sense of community and individuality.6. Instruction is tied to student interests (and is culturally relevant).
