Marc Prensky's Concept of Brain Gain: Technology and the quest for digital wisdom
Young Minds are growing up in a technological world
Technology is the air that students breathe.
Technology is a foundation
It is not just a tool to reach a means end to an assignment.
Just as reading was a foundation for our generation, technology is a foundations for 21st century learners.

We are preparing student for the future with old ways
Technology is the future, but if we continue to subject them to the same learning styles that we had, we are doing them a disservice.
Sometimes we need technology to rediscover traditional ways of learning.
Children need to be taught to be job creators.
Newer technology is replacing the jobs of old, but new career paths are being forged because of the advancements in technology.
Jobs that required people to answer phones all day are replaced by software that fixes issues. Students should be taught to create apps, services, and ways to fix the technology and convenience of this app.
21st Century learning needs to enhance student strengths and not fix their deficits.
Students that follow the pathways of Common Core alone, will not prepare them for the workforce of the future.
Real-World Learning Framework for Secondary Schools
The Use of Bloom's Taxonomy that requires deepening levels of cognitive complexity and student engagement.
Investigating, Integrating and Specializing focuses on the top three levels of the cognitive process
Checking for fallacies or inconsistencies
Critiquing using a set criteria to evaluate various options
Organizing interactions and sequencing of events
Attributing bias, assumptions, or points of view to information
Differentiating relevant from irrelevant
Generating by exploring various ideas or solutions to solve and ill-defined problem through hypothesizing and exploring carious relevant options
Planning by taking the best idea they have generated to solve the problem by working out the kinks
Producing is following through with the plan and creating a new product or solution.
