We hear of talk of 21st century learning, and skills and jobs that are completely new. Sometimes it feels like just talk; but then again, there are companies that actually have these kinds of jobs.
Ziba Design, a top innovation and design consulting firm in Portland, has employees speaking 25 languages and 62 areas of expertise, including Color Specialists, Environmental Designers, Information Architects, and Cognitive Scientists. They find interesting patterns and synthesize tons of information. Pretty cool, eh?
So we do need to make certain that our students are ready for these jobs and these fascinating times.
