NCaect Opening Session - Shift Happens

Technorati Tags:

You can tell that teacher's run this conference. The energy and enthusiasm of the group is contagious! They are excited about they can do and honoring those before them. I'm excited to know a few of the award recipients!

I have always been a fan of Sheryl Nussbaum Beach's work. (Ustreamed) I enjoy her blog and have been looking forward to this for awhile.

The 21st Century is now - how are we changing?
Web 1.0 to Web 2.0 to Web 3.0 - Singularity
Dynamic textbooks with wikis - this is my favorite idea for wiki use
Accelerating Adoption rate - how long does it take to reach the "common household"

How do we prepare for jobs that do not exist yet?
Ten Trends
#1 Social & Intellectual Capital
#4 Education will shift from
#7 technology will increase the speed of communication

Move from accountability to responsibility - Intrinsic motivation for all

"Computers will not replace teachers. Teachers who use computers will replace those who do not."

Sheryl was an absolutely wonderful speaker - inspiration, real, and accessible. I am in awe.
