    Creative Problem Solving in Schools Presentation by Adobe Education Jan 22, 2018 Products Adobe Experience Cloud Adobe Creative Cloud Adobe Document Cloud 3.3k 3

    New Adobe global study reveals that creative problem-solving skills are central to success in the future workforce but are not adequately supported in today’s curricula. In researching Creative Problem Solving in Schools: Essential Skills Today’s Students Need for Jobs in Tomorrow’s Age of Automation, Adobe surveyed 1600 educators and 400 policymakers from the U.K., Japan, Germany and the U.S. and learned how the people shaping education and students’ experiences view creative problem solving as a critical skill. Overwhelmingly, 86 percent of global educators believe that students who excel at creative problem-solving will have higher-earning job opportunities in the future, and 85 percent agreed that these same skills are in high demand by today’s employers for senior level and higher paying careers. Additionally, three quarters of respondents predict that professions that require creative problem-solving skills are less likely to be impacted by automation. Yet despite this clear consensus, there is a huge disconnect with what is happening in the classroom today. 90 percent of educators believe we need to find better ways to integrate it into the curricula, and more than half of educators explain that they do not have the tools, training or knowledge to nurture creative problem solving in their students. Of the policymakers surveyed, 88 percent advocate for finding a way to reform the current curricula in their region to better nurture creative problem solving in schools.

    #RethinkHighSchool: Start a Business Project by Mike Skocko Jul 19, 2017 Products Adobe Creative Cloud 199 4

    Four years ago I started a discussion on the EdEx titled Employees Only - No Students Wanted. To avoid confusion I added: The idea is more metaphoric than literal. Two years ago I began thinking about the idea literally: Could we actually start a business at school? To make a long story short, after researching the market, networking with the players, discussing it with the students, and finally getting approval from the school and district, we launched Mac Lab Media on January 9, 2017. Less than a week later someone told me about Real World Scholars. Soon thereafter we were accepted into the program (during their first mid-year application window) and I replaced my Rube Goldberg-like edu-solution with Real World Scholar's tested, vetted, 100% legal Ed Corps model. Find more info here. Mac Lab Media is a commercial art foundry. I've replaced the assessment component with the Grit-Based Rubric but this paragraph from Minimum Wage sums up my intent: The ultimate goals, however, have nothing to do with grades. For the Mac Lab, our goal is to become a self-funded learning environment by the 2020/2021 school year. For the students, our goal is to provide the training and experience necessary to launch their own commercial art foundries upon graduation. ----- NOTE: All #RethinkHighSchool resources here on the EdEx rely on the concepts expressed in my (re)Imagine blog post.

    #RethinkHighSchool: Gamifying the Classroom Project by Mike Skocko Jul 18, 2017 Products Adobe Creative Cloud 187 0

    Did you know that a well-designed game leverages Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal Development, Csikszentmihalyi’s Flow, Dweck’s Growth Mindset, and Duckworth’s Grit? I sure didn’t until encountering those surprising connections in month nine of my master’s program in 2011 while working through the introductory quest line at Gamestar Mechanic. Okay, so maybe my digital mentor didn’t reference those researchers directly but the concepts were certainly front and center. Armed with that knowledge, my experience playing World of Warcraft (I was required to play for 10 days) was transformative. After a few days I knew I had to introduce a gamified curriculum delivery system in my classroom. Unfortunately, in May of 2011 there were no viable options to do so (3D Game Lab was still in beta at that point) so my students and I set out to create our own system. Here's a peek at where we are today with Game On, our free WordPress plugin. Whether you opt for a commercial, analog, or even our own system, I urge you to consider how well-implemented game mechanics might enhance your students' experience in your learning environment.

    #RethinkHighSchool: The Series Project by Mike Skocko Jul 18, 2017 Products Adobe Creative Cloud 416 0

    I wrote (re)Imagine in response to the Super School Challenge. Our staff wasn't too excited about my ideas but a few others—including some of the folks from one of the winning schools ($10M grant) who popped by to observe and discuss—have shown interest. The (re)Imagine blog post isn't a plan for the future; it's just one more part of what we're currently doing in the Mac Lab (my classroom). Since virtually everything else I'll be posting will reference information in (re)Imagine, you might as well give it a go if you're interested in rethinking your own learning environment. And who knows, you might even find an idea or two that'll work for you and your students. :) NOTE: If (re)Imagine is in tl;dr territory—it's around a 30 minute read—I apologize but don't know how to work around the issue. According to WordPress, I've made 330 revisions since the article was first published. I actually have tried to be clear and concise but when challenging common sense one must tread with caution so as not to unnecessarily offend the reader. *sigh* Unfortunately, tact isn't one of my strengths. Nor is writing, but I do try. (Dyslexia is such a misunderstood superpower.) I'll be sharing more #RethinkHighSchool resources so you can easily find them on the EdEx. Click on the magnifying glass at the top of the page and search for for RethinkHighSchool (without the #) and you'll find the rest.
