What Will it Take....

to meet the demands of a new age? To Meet the Demands of a New Age is the title of a video produced by Steven Hopper at Iowa State University. I saw the video on Collette Cassinelli's blog. It was also featured by Angela Maiers. The video makes some good points about the future and purpose of education in a highly connected world.

If you haven't seen A Vision of Students Today and Did You Know (Shift Happens), I highly recommend taking thirteen minutes to watch both.
A Vision of Students Today


Did You Know (Shift Happens)


What advice would you give to a teacher or administrator watching any of these videos for the first time? What is the first step a teacher or administrator should take toward preparing today's students to participate and compete in today's highly connected world?
