  • The Hard Questions (ppt, pdf)
    • Guiding Questions:
      • 21st Century Life: How has the world changed and what are the implications for education?
      • 21st Century Skills: Does the NAIS Commission on Accreditation Schools of the Future Committee’s overview of 21st Century Capacities hit the mark? Does a new/renewed emphasis on skills necessitate a decreased emphasis on knowledge learning?
      • 21st Century Students: How are students today the same as their predecessors and how are they different? How do we respond to the differences?
      • 21st Century Instruction: How must it change, and how can we accomplish this? What do advances in brain research and the cognitive sciences teach us about the learning process that we did not know before? What are the implications for the classroom?
      • 21st Century Assessment: Does traditional letter grading continue to be effective as a measurement and an incentive for what we want students to learn, or does 21st century learning require new-format assessments? If so, what assessment techniques are required for 21st century learning?
      • 21st Century Teachers: What are the characteristics of a 21st century teacher? What are the implications for our hiring practices? How do we best facilitate our teachers’ evolution to contemporary teaching and learning? What forms of professional development are called for?
      • 21st Century Curriculum: Does 21st century learning demand a renewed attention to inquiry, relevance, and/or project/problem-based learning, or are these alternate approaches too problematic to adopt wide-scale? Can the curriculum balance the teaching of core academics and 21st century skills? If so, how?
      • 21st Century Learning Technology: Does contemporary learning require a large or larger role for laptops and other digital tools in the classroom and what are the pros and cons of wired classrooms?
