Knowledge powers Wisconsin's changing workforce | Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Knowledge powers Wisconsin's changing workforce | Milwaukee Journal Sentinel | Workforce Development & Instructional Technology | Scoop.it

The nation's economy has seen more downs than ups over the past few years. Today, as the outlook becomes more positive, the pace of change is accelerating. This is true in technology, education and the workplace.

 

In Wisconsin, some of the 35,000 students graduating from University of Wisconsin colleges and universities might expect to hold as many as a dozen different jobs by the time they reach age 40. Flexibility, foresight, a solid grounding in the liberal arts and sciences and a spirit of entrepreneurship will become increasingly important for them.

 

Our Badger State economy weathered the Great Recession as well as it did in part because of our proud tradition of manufacturing excellence and also, importantly, because of start-ups and small businesses in other fields. Manufacturing is still the backbone of our altered and somewhat downsized economy, and this sector was identified as a key business driver in a recent study by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corp. Because of its wide reach, manufacturing is linked to many other sectors that will fuel growth. Among them: finance, health care, water technology and biotech, to name a few. Start-ups in these and other fields will continue to add new jobs as the economy revitalizes.

 

In the start-up realm, the opportunities for growth can be as unpredictable as the weather and the results just as startling. One example is the promise shown by an aerial crop-monitoring "quad-copter" developed by a UW-Whitewater undergraduate majoring in entrepreneurship. His picnic-basket-sized electronic device helps farmers check crops for weather damage. The project merited a top prize in the Wisconsin Governor's Business Plan Competition this year.

 

To continue Wisconsin's rich tradition of innovation, we must capitalize on the strengths of our higher education institutions. They are important engines of economic renewal in today's knowledge economy. As new businesses and new jobs are added in this state, from Chippewa Falls to Menomonee Falls and beyond, many of them will require highly resourceful and creative employees. By 2018, nearly two-thirds of all jobs in Wisconsin will require some form of postsecondary education, according to the Georgetown University Center on Education and Workforce.

 

As businesses seek the best places to grow their operations, it becomes even more important to highlight the specialized knowledge that our talented UW graduates possess. The demand for highly skilled workers continues to rise in the areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) and in health-related fields. More than one-quarter of the UW degrees granted last year were in these areas, and the numbers continue to grow.

Blended Learning 2.0: A Visual Guide For Teachers - Edudemic

Blended Learning 2.0: A Visual Guide For Teachers - Edudemic | Workforce Development & Instructional Technology | Scoop.it

by Jeff Dunn

 

"Blended learning has taken off as one of the big trends in education over the past several years. Like flipped classrooms and 1:1 environments, it’s one of the top ways for teachers to leverage the power of technology in the classroom. It’s not a new concept, to be sure. However, there’s a new guide to understanding and implementing what’s being billed as blended learning 2.0.

 

"There are a few key stages of proper implementation that you should know if you’re looking to start climbing the blended learning tree. Starting from down at the roots is the planning process. It’s about a lot more than just ‘planning’ on buying some iPads. Planning involves creating appropriate blended learning spaces. That means you have a nice place for students to gather and collaborate while using technology. Scroll down to the bottom of the graphic below to get started."
