21st Century Work: Career-Readiness Isn’t What It Used To Be

21st Century Work: Career-Readiness Isn’t What It Used To Be | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

Thinking of jobs, careers, and pay is–by some–being replaced with the idea of work, relationships, and meaning. Technology and the resulting connectivity are a part of this. In the 21st century, we all have personal “brands”–digital footprints that precede and proceed us, leaving a record of our interactions and ideas for anyone to see.

Karen Bonanno's insight:

Important to focus on future skills development for students with this changing work environment.

An Example Of Experiential Learning

An Example Of Experiential Learning | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

Just because work is hands-on does not mean it is minds-on. Many projects, problems, situations, and field trips do not yield lasting and transferable learning because too little attention is given to the meta-cognitive and idea-building work that turns a single experience into insight and later application.

Miami-Dade libraries: Not just for reading anymore

Miami-Dade libraries: Not just for reading anymore | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

As Dixon discovered, libraries aren’t just for reading anymore. People go to their local branches to learn how to expand their business, navigate government red tape, become master gardeners, produce videos or calibrate their computer skills. Kids can get free lunches, learn a language or if they’re visually impaired, receive free audio books.

Going global: a literacy, a process, a call to action (and some resources) | School Library Advocacy | Scoop.it

Jacobs defines global literacy as the ability to be a fluent investigator of the world, to be able to examine different perspectives, to be able to report on and share ideas, and to take action on those ideas.  Being globally literate requires learners to be able to collect meaningful information about people and places and personalize what they are learning.

Innovative thinking in students will flower when we design classrooms that absolutely can’t survive without it. Same with critical thinking, self-direction, creativity, and so on. Until we reach that point, it’s on the shoulders of the classroom teacher to tease it out of students through a combination of inspiration, modeling, scaffolding, and creating persistent opportunity.

Teaching the ins and outs of servers and subdomains can be challenging, which is why we’ve been hard at work creating simple and engaging video tutorials to help you teach these imperative skills to students.
