  1. 21st Century Skills

    The 21st Century Skills Movement seeks to reform education to better prepare students for success in the modern workplace. Those skills include creativity, innovation, critical thinking, communication and collaboration. We'll talk to some Silicon Valley veterans who are working to help students attain these skills. And we'll find out why the movement has encountered opposition from some education leaders, who favor an emphasis on core content and knowledge.

    Guests: - Bernie Trilling, author of "21st Century Skills: Learning for Life in Our Times" and former global director of the Oracle Education Foundation - Gregg Witkin, digital media arts teacher at Boynton High School in Campbell - Miguel Salinas, senior manager of Adobe Youth Voices — a global philanthropic initiative that empowers youth from under-served communities with digital media tools so they can comment on their world and share ideas - Randy Nelson, head of artistic development and training at DreamWorks Animation and former dean of Pixar University

    Ever notice how fast kids kids seem to learn intricate video games? There's a school of thought that says there's something about the nature of games that help kids learn effectively — perhaps more so than in traditional school-based learning. There's a new public school opening soon in New York City that aims to use game design principles to create immersive, game-like learning experiences for students. Quest to Learn is a grade six through 12 school that will open its doors in the fall.
