21 Things That Will Be Obsolete by 2020

Education | 2011.05.07 21:10 | Posted by 스마트 안전보건

Inspired by Sandy Speicher’s vision of the designed school day of the future, reader Shelly Blake-Plock shared his own predictions of that ideal day. How close are we to this? The post was written in December 2009, and Blake-Plock says he’s seeing some of these already beginning to come to fruition.

1. DESKS
The 21st century does not fit neatly into rows. Neither should your students. Allow the network-based concepts of flow, collaboration, and dynamism help you rearrange your room for authentic 21st century learning.

2. LANGUAGE LABS
Foreign language acquisition is only a smartphone away. Get rid of those clunky desktops and monitors and do something fun with that room.
3. COMPUTERS
Ok, so this is a trick answer. More precisely this one should read: ‘Our concept of what a computer is’. Because computing is going mobile and over the next decade we’re going to see the full fury of individualized computing via handhelds come to the fore. Can’t wait.
4. HOMEWORK
The 21st century is a 24/7 environment. And the next decade is going to see the traditional temporal boundaries between home and school disappear. And despite whatever Secretary Duncan might say, we don’t need kids to ‘go to school’ more; we need them to ‘learn’ more. And this will be done 24/7 and on the move.

5. THE ROLE OF STANDARDIZED TESTS IN COLLEGE ADMISSIONS
The AP Exam is on its last legs. The SAT isn’t far behind. Over the next ten years, we will see Digital Portfolios replace test scores as the #1 factor in college admissions.
6. DIFFERENTIATED INSTRUCTION AS A SIGN OF DISTINGUISHED TEACHER
The 21st century is customizable. In ten years, the teacher who hasn’t yet figured out how to use tech to personalize learning will be the teacher out of a job. Differentiation won’t make you ‘distinguished’; it’ll just be a natural part of your work.
7. FEAR OF WIKIPEDIA
Wikipedia is the greatest democratizing force in the world right now. If you are afraid of letting your students peruse it, it’s time you get over yourself.
8. PAPERBACKS
Books were nice. In ten years’ time, all reading will be via digital means. And yes, I know, you like the ‘feel’ of paper. Well, in ten years’ time you’ll hardly tell the difference as ‘paper’ itself becomes digitized.

9. ATTENDANCE OFFICES
Bio scans. ‘Nuff said.
10. LOCKERS
A coat-check, maybe.
11. I.T. DEPARTMENTS
Ok, so this is another trick answer. More subtly put: IT Departments as we currently know them. Cloud computing and a decade’s worth of increased wifi and satellite access will make some of the traditional roles of IT — software, security, and connectivity — a thing of the past. What will IT professionals do with all their free time? Innovate. Look to tech departments to instigate real change in the function of schools over the next twenty years.
12. CENTRALIZED INSTITUTIONS
School buildings are going to become ‘homebases’ of learning, not the institutions where all learning happens. Buildings will get smaller and greener, student and teacher schedules will change to allow less people on campus at any one time, and more teachers and students will be going out into their communities to engage in experiential learning.
13. ORGANIZATION OF EDUCATIONAL SERVICES BY GRADE
Education over the next ten years will become more individualized, leaving the bulk of grade-based learning in the past. Students will form peer groups by interest and these interest groups will petition for specialized learning. The structure of K-12 will be fundamentally altered.
14. EDUCATION SCHOOLS THAT FAIL TO INTEGRATE TECHNOLOGY
This is actually one that could occur over the next five years. Education Schools have to realize that if they are to remain relevant, they are going to have to demand that 21st century tech integration be modeled by the very professors who are supposed to be preparing our teachers.
15. PAID/OUTSOURCED PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT
No one knows your school as well as you. With the power of a PLN (professional learing networks) in their back pockets, teachers will rise up to replace peripatetic professional development gurus as the source of schoolwide professional development programs. This is already happening.
16. CURRENT CURRICULAR NORMS
There is no reason why every student needs to take however many credits in the same course of study as every other student. The root of curricular change will be the shift in middle schools to a role as foundational content providers and high schools as places for specialized learning.
17. PARENT-TEACHER CONFERENCE NIGHT
Ongoing parent-teacher relations in virtual reality will make parent-teacher conference nights seem quaint. Over the next ten years, parents and teachers will become closer than ever as a result of virtual communication opportunities. And parents will drive schools to become ever more tech integrated.
18. TYPICAL CAFETERIA FOOD
Nutrition information + handhelds + cost comparison = the end of $3.00 bowls of microwaved mac and cheese. At least, I so hope so.

19. OUTSOURCED GRAPHIC DESIGN AND WEB DESIGN
You need a website/brochure/promo/etc.? Well, for goodness sake just let your kids do it. By the end of the decade — in the best of schools — they will be.
20. HIGH SCHOOL ALGEBRA 1
Within the decade, it will either become the norm to teach this course in middle school or we’ll have finally woken up to the fact that there’s no reason to give algebra weight over statistics and I.T. in high school for non-math majors (and they will have all taken it in middle school anyway).
21. PAPER
In ten years’ time, schools will decrease their paper consumption by no less than 90%. And the printing industry and the copier industry and the paper industry itself will either adjust or perish.

Learn HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS in Mozilla

"www.amplify.com"

 

Mozilla is getting ready for the January semester of School of Webcraft

a 100% free developer training resource run in partnership with

Peer 2 Peer University

 

Last semester, the School of Webcraft offered 15 classes; now,

Mozilla is trying to get around 30 classes going for the January semester.

 

Classes will be between six and 10 weeks long; they’ll revolve around

topics relevant to web designers and developers, including HTML5,

JavaScript and CSS. Previous classes have also included non-developer

topics such as organic SEO. Requisite skill levels will run the gamut from

novice to expert. The volunteer-run courses will begin on January 26,

and proposals for new course ideas are still being accepted.

 

Students learn through a combination of free and open learning materials,

online study groups and hands-on assignments that test their hacking skills.

 

If you’re a leader in the developer community, you can also step up and

lead a course yourself. If you want to organize a class, you’ll get support

from P2PU and Mozilla in the form of course design, materials, learning

facilitation and other resources.

 

Registration opens on January 8; until then, you can sign up for the School

of Webcraft e-mail list.

 

Mozilla believes that developer training is “both at the high school and

university level… out of date, lousy and losing students.” Another problem

is that younger learners simply don’t have access to good web dev learning

resources. And certification training is expensive and often out of step with

current practices

 

By creating a completely free, open training ground for developers and

would-be developers of all stripes, Mozilla hopes to remedy some of the

problems surrounding technology education.

 

We fully support this mission; anything that will allow more people to become

better informed about and more proficient in web development and related

technologies is a win in our book.

 

Of course, we’d love to see more than just front-end and markup languages

explored; but for that to happen, some knowledgeable devs are going to

have to volunteer to teach their peers the basics (or not-so-basics) of

other programming languages.

UNC 'Bringing Education To Life'

Education | 2010.12.10 07:45 | Posted by 스마트 안전보건

This videos are about University of Northern Colorado, 'Bringing Education To Life'.

unc_logo_bear_text.png

UNC launched these 3 PR videos on national broadcatings in USA.

I think the slogan of UNC 'Bringing Education To Life' is great.

unc_logo_bear_unc_no_BG.jpg

 

 

It is because they were founded in 1889 as a normal school where students were

educated in order to be teachers in Colorado.

Watch these 3 videos and recommend UNC to your friends or others.

Milliken Elementary Presentation

Education | 2010.11.20 14:46 | Posted by 스마트 안전보건

I had the second presentation about KOREA in front of students and teachers 

at Milliken Elementary School in Milliken.

This time I mad a bit of changes on my presentation and I thought this one

was better than last one which was held 2 weeks ago at Letford Elementary School.

I brought some korean things such money, seaweed, and some candies and gave them

as a present. They, especially students, liked it. I think I did better on time managing,

being familiar with my presentation content, and confidence with presenting without

being nervous.

 

This is KOREA_Cultural Day
