Our Target


A changing workplace

A changing complexity

The fourth industrial revolution is a world in which we are not defined by our capital, but by our talents and capacities American Mining Association

A new terminologyGamificationSimulationHaptic EnvironmentGlobalizationRFID & Smart EnvironmentsRemote AssistanceInternet of things, people, & services

Digitally, how are these our students?


Our sources have changedHow many of you used to subscribe to Time or Newsweek? Now?How many of you used to subscribe to a newspaper? Now?How many of you used to take dedicated time to read the homepage of a news outlet, even AOL? Now?When was the last time you logged into MySpace?

A changing roleAs of 2014, 68% of Millennials received their news from social medianot news outlets. CNNIts not enough to consume any morethe role of the public is global and exposed, for good and for badNow we are active participants in the worldfrom our couches

But, were not just consumers

Hey, have you seen this?Even old media only survives by grafting itself to new media

A changing voiceThe number of blogs has doubled every six months since 2001, when the term was coined133 million bloggers in U.S. as of 3/2015

Lets back up? What is literacy?2 RsInformationCommunicationReception & ProductionPower and Privilege: to change the world


So, whats the big deal?Digital FluencyThe aptitude to effectively and ethically interpret information, discover meaning, design content, construct knowledge, and communicate ideas in a digitally connected world.Digital LiteracyThe knowledge, skills, and behaviors used in a broad range ofdigitaldevices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop PCs, all of which are seen as network rather than computing devices.

*Digital Fluency Initiative, 2014


Where are we headed?

Changing the worldit happensIn 2001, Dr. Tim Tyson had a dream to Move Mabry Middle School in Marietta, Georgia, from the bottom 10% of schools in the state, to the top 10%. He would do so by letting students lead the waychallenging them to change the world.By 2006, the students were the top 2%, and they could care lessthe world was changing because of them.

Like the Oscars, but not lame George Lucas Foundation


A course correctionGiven the distinction of digital fluency from digital literacy, and acknowledging the digital natives in our classrooms, how should we view our role as educators?What about devices?Should we be one-to-one class/site/district?Or, should we be one-to-world class/site/district?
