Description

This is a PPT that I used with our two high schools to generate some awareness of the differences that make up today's student. I utilized information from Karl Fisch's "Did You Know?" presentation. The PPT made a huge impact. I also wanted to highlight some of the resources available to my teachers.

Let me introduce myself…

Few things about myself…. … and I’m not really happy with the Yankee win last night

Few things about myself…. … and I’m predicting a Super Bowl re-match against New England… but we are talking about a Philadelphia team here

Few things about myself…. My wife and I are first time parents. Kyla is 5 months old and is the single greatest thing to ever happen to me. According to my mother, it’s the first thing that I’ve done right in a long time.

Few things about myself…. I am and always will be a teacher I am a teacher of teachers Staff development is my favorite! Wilkes University’s Instructional Technology Certification Program ESU’s Media and Communication Program I am a literacy nut…focus on “new literacies” I am an instructional technologist I am a forward thinker…within reason I strongly believe that technology “tricks” kids into learning

I am and always will be a teacher

I am a teacher of teachers

Staff development is my favorite!

Wilkes University’s Instructional Technology Certification Program

ESU’s Media and Communication Program

I am a literacy nut…focus on “new literacies”

I am an instructional technologist

I am a forward thinker…within reason

I strongly believe that technology “tricks” kids into learning

Some food for thought…

… because we LIVE in a different world and TEACH a different student.

According to former Secretary of Education Richard Riley . . .

… the top 10 in-demand jobs in 2010 do not exist today.

We are currently preparing students for jobs that don’t yet exist . . .

… using technologies that haven’t been invented . . .

… in order to solve problems we don’t even know are problems yet.

The U.S. is 20 th in the world in broadband Internet penetration. (Luxembourg recently passed us.)

 

In 2006 alone Nintendo invested more than $190 million in research and development.

[2006] The U.S. Federal Government spent less than half as much on Research and Innovation.

How about this? 1 out of every 8 couples married in the U.S. last year met online.

There are over 60 million registered users of MySpace. There are an additional 21 million visitors per year (2007).

The average MySpace page is visited 30 times a day.

There are over 2.7 billion searches performed on Google each month.

To whom were these questions addressed B.G. ( Before Google )?

The number of text messages sent and received every day exceeds the population of the planet.

There are over 500,000 words in the English language.

That’s about 5 times as many as during Shakespeare’s time.

More than 3,000 new books are published . . .

… daily.

It’s estimated that a week’s worth of New York Times . . .

… contains more information than a person was likely to come across in a lifetime in the 18 th century.

It’s estimated that 1.5 exabytes (that’s 1.5 x 10 18 ) of unique new information will be generated worldwide this year.

That’s estimated to be more than the entire sum of the previous 5,000 years.

The amount of new technical information is doubling every 2 years.

That means for a student starting a four-year technical or college degree . . .

… half of what they learn in their first year of study will be outdated by their third year of study.

It’s predicted to double every 72 hours by 2010.

Third generation fiber optics is presently being tested by telecommunications companies. . .

… that pushes 10 trillion bits per second down one strand of fiber.

That’s 1,900 CDs or 150 million simultaneous phone calls every second.

It’s currently tripling about every 6 months and is expected to do so for at least the next 20 years.

Predictions are that e-paper will be cheaper than real paper.

47 million laptops were shipped worldwide last year.

The $100 laptop project is expecting to ship between 50 and 100 million laptops a year to children in underdeveloped or emerging countries.

Predictions are that by 2013 a supercomputer ($$$) will be built that exceeds the computation capability of the human brain.

By 2025, a $1,000 computer will exceed the capabilities of the Human Brain.

First graders will be just 23 years old and beginning their (first) careers.

And while technical predictions farther out than about 15 years are hard to do . . .

… predictions are that by 2049 a $1,000 computer will exceed the computational capabilities of the ENTIRE HUMAN RACE.

So what does this all mean for us?

It means that it is obvious that technology needs to be a tool to help us meet the needs of today’s and tomorrow’s students.

BUT we’re still trying to figure it out.

In order to meet the needs of today’s TOTALLY DIVERSE LEARNER…

… we have to use innovative ways to REACH today’s student…

… allowing us to diversify our teaching and improve our schools.
