                                2020 Scenarios
                           Team 1: Year Round Learning
Context     This round of work is focused on challenging our thinking about the future. Each small
            group has been given a different scenario of the future (2020).

            Your group’s scenario:

                   Imagine by 2020 we have transitioned to a model of learning that expands
                   beyond the 8AM to 3PM time frame in a single day AND provides year round
                   learning opportunities for all learners.

Objective   Develop a description of how this works – and why this scenario is the best thing for
            Papillion-La Vista in order to provide a 21st Century Education. Use the following
            questions to help stimulate your dialog and develop your response:
                What will be the keys to making this a success at PLSD?

                  What would we need to do to make this happen?

                  Give examples of several experiences that exemplify how learners experience
                   this, facilitators experience this, and an administrator experience this model.

Time        You have approximately 90 minutes to complete your work – including a working lunch.




Process     In your group, use the white wall to brainstorm and collect your ideas and to produce
            your final product (your final product will be on the white walls).




Exchange    After you have developed your response you will have an opportunity to share your work
            with other groups.

                               2020 Scenarios
                      Team 2: Small Learning Communities
Context     This round of work is focused on challenging our thinking about the future. Each small
            group has been given a different scenario of the future (2020).

            Your group’s scenario:

                   Imagine by 2020 we have learning academies for students and facilitators
                   within business sites throughout the Omaha-Metro community. Assume we
                   have instituted a structure like this for all high school age students.

Objective   Develop a description of how this works – and why this scenario is the best thing for
            Papillion-La Vista in order to provide a 21st Century Education. Use the following
            questions to help stimulate your dialog and develop your response:
                What will be the keys to making this a success at PLSD?

                  What would we need to do to make this happen?

                  Give examples of several experiences that exemplify how learners experience
                   this, facilitators experience this, and businesses experience this model.

Time        You have approximately 90 minutes to complete your work – including a working
            lunch.




Process     In your group, use the white wall to brainstorm and collect your ideas and to produce
            your final product (your final product will be on the white walls).

            For reference, you have been provided a brochure of something called academies
            which were implemented back in 2010.

Exchange    After you have developed your response you will have an opportunity to share your
            work with other groups.

                   Team 3: Business/Community Evaluation
Context     This round of work is focused on challenging our thinking about the future. Each
            small group has been given a different scenario of the future (2020).

            Your group’s scenario:

                   Imagine by 2020 our community and business partners have the opportunity
                   to “grade” and/or provide feedback on the quality of student learning
                   throughout the district.

Objective   Develop a description of how this works – and why this scenario is the best thing for
            Papillion-La Vista in order to provide a 21st Century Education. Use the following
            questions to help stimulate your dialog and develop your response:
                What would they measure?

                  How would it be assessed?

                  What changes would the district, school or classroom have to make as a
                   result of this type of collaboration?

                  Give a couple of examples that exemplify how a school experiences this,
                   facilitators experiences this, and businesses experience this model.

Time        You have approximately 90 minutes to complete your work – including a working
            lunch.




Process     In your group, use the white wall to brainstorm and collect your ideas and to produce
            your final product (your final product will be on the white walls).




Exchange    After you have developed your response you will have an opportunity to share your
            work with other groups.

                                         June 2 – 3, 2010


Context     This round of work is focused on challenging our thinking about the future. Each small group has
            been given a different scenario of the future (2020).

            Your group’s scenario:

                     Imagine by 2020 we have a system in place where all high school students collaboratively
                     design their own learning plans based on their interests and/or chosen career pathway.
                     Imagine this were done in concert with being made aware of the standards they had to
                     achieve by the end of their school year.
Objective   Develop a description of how this works – and why this scenario is the best thing for Papillion-La
                                          st
            Vista in order to provide a 21 Century Education. Use the following questions to help stimulate
            your dialog and develop your response:
                 What is the structure that needs to be in place to differentiate personalized learning plans
                     for these students based on their interests - pathways?

                   How would this work?

                   What would be the keys to making something like this succeed for PLSD?

                   What would need to be in place for this to be successful?

                   Give examples of several experiences that exemplify how learners experience this,
                    facilitators experience this, and a counselor experiences this model.

Time        You have approximately 90 minutes to complete your work – including a working lunch.




Process     In your group, use the white wall to brainstorm and collect your ideas and to produce your final
            product (your final product will be on the white walls).

            For reference, you have been provided a copy of something called career pathways which were
            implemented back in 2010.

Exchange    After you have developed your response you will have an opportunity to share your work with other
            groups.

                                          June 2 – 3, 2010


Context     This round of work is focused on challenging our thinking about the future. Each small group has
            been given a different scenario of the future (2020). Your group’s scenario: As the challenges
            facing the globe become increasingly complex, our frames of reference must be flexible,
            expansive, and adaptive. (Educational Leadership, 2009)

                •   The 21st century mind will need to successfully manage the complexity and diversity of
                    our world by becoming more fluid, more flexible, more focused on reality, radically more
                    innovative.
                •   Daniel Pink suggests in his book, A Whole New Mind, 6 essential abilities (based on brain
                    research) that are necessary to survive and thrive in the future. These abilities are:
                    Design, Story, Symphony, Empathy, Play, Meaning. He suggests the people that master
                    these 'senses' first will have a huge advantage.
                                                                                                    st
              Imagine it is 2020 and all students receive experiences that help them develop ‘a 21 Century
              Mind.’

Objective   Develop a description of how this works – and why this scenario is the best thing for Papillion-La
                                          st
            Vista in order to provide a 21 Century Education. Use the following questions to help stimulate
            your dialog and develop your response:
                 What would PLSD look like if these were core skills all students mastered in the 13 years
                     they spend with us?

                   What would we change in order to do this?

                   Give a couple of examples that exemplify how learners experience this and how
                    facilitators experience this.

Time        You have approximately 90 minutes to complete your work – including a working lunch.




Process     In your group, use the white wall to brainstorm and collect your ideas and to produce your final
            product (your final product will be on the white walls).

            For reference, you have been provided a short description of the six abilities described by Daniel
            Pink.

Exchange    After you have developed your response you will have an opportunity to share your work with
            other groups.

Context     This round of work is focused on challenging our thinking about the future. Each small
            group has been given a different scenario of the future (2020).

            Your group’s scenario:

                Imagine it is 2020 and all learners have at least one computing device with them at
                all times. This device is both a communication device (phone, email, chat, social
                networking), an entertainment device (music, movies, magazines and newspapers)
                and contains (or can access) all text books, reference materials, schedules,
                calendars, and most information a person could ever want.
Objective   Develop a description of how this works – and why this scenario is the best thing for
            Papillion-La Vista in order to provide a 21st Century Education. Use the following
            questions to help stimulate your dialog and develop your response:
                What will be the keys to making this a success at PLSD?

                  What would we need to do to make this happen?

Context     This round of work is focused on challenging our thinking about the future. Each small
            group has been given a different scenario of the future (2020).

            Your group’s scenario:

                Imagine the year is 2020 and schools as we knew them back in 2010 do not exist.
                In their place is the ‘ideal’ model for educating youth to be successful in the 21st
                Century (in a global, connected, and highly complex world).

Objective   Develop a description of what this idealized model looks like – and why this is the best
            thing for Papillion-La Vista in order to provide a 21st Century Education. Use the
            following questions to help stimulate your dialog and develop your response:
                  What will be the keys to making this work?

                  What would we need to do to make this happen?

                  Give examples of several experiences that exemplify how learners experience
                   this, how facilitators experience this, and how the community experiences this
                   model.

Time        You have approximately 90 minutes to complete your work – including a working
            lunch.




Process     In your group, use the white wall to brainstorm and collect your ideas and to produce
            your final product (your final product will be on the white walls).




Exchange    After you have developed your response you will have an opportunity to share your

                                2020 Scenarios
                        Team 8: College and Career Ready
Context     This round of work is focused on challenging our thinking about the future. Each small
            group has been given a different scenario of the future (2020).

            Your group’s scenario:

                Imagine it is 2020 and PLSD is addressing the needs of young people to be
                successful in the 21st Century and creating both College and Career Ready
                graduates. This means we have moved beyond rhetoric and we have an integrated
                experience where knowledge (content) and 21st skills (like creativity, teamwork, and
                problem solving) are mastered (see the draft Career Ready standards being
                developed by the NE DoE provided for reference).

Objective   Develop a description of what this looks like – and why this is the best thing for
            Papillion-La Vista in order to provide a 21st Century Education. Use the following
            questions to help stimulate your dialog and develop your response:
                What will be the keys to making this work?

                  What would we need to do to make this happen?

                  Give examples of several experiences that exemplify how learners experience
                   this, how facilitators experience this, and the community experiences this model.

Time        You have approximately 90 minutes to complete your work – including a working lunch.




Process     In your group, use the white wall to brainstorm and collect your ideas and to produce
            your final product (your final product will be on the white walls).

            For reference your group has been provided a copy of draft standards defining a career
            ready graduate that were being developed in 2010.
Exchange    After you have developed your response you will have an opportunity to share your work
            with other groups.

                          Team 9: Community Resources
Context     This round of work is focused on challenging our thinking about the future. Each small
            group has been given a different scenario of the future (2020).

            Your group’s scenario:

                Imagine it is 2020 and PLSD has an integrated facilities plan and instructional
                model that primarily utilizes community resources and partnerships instead of
                school owned facilities. This leverages both school and community resources and
                puts learning into the community.

Objective   Develop a description of what PLSD looks like utilizing community resources – and why
            this is the best thing for Papillion-La Vista in order to provide a 21st Century Education.
            Use the following questions to help stimulate your dialog and develop your response:
                 What will be the keys to making this work?

                  What would we need to do to make this happen?

                  Give examples of several experiences that exemplify how learners experience
                   this, how facilitators experience this, and the community experiences this model.

Time        You have approximately 90 minutes to complete your work – including a working lunch.




Process     In your group, use the white wall to brainstorm and collect your ideas and to produce
            your final product (your final product will be on the white walls).

            For reference your group has been provided a copy of the PLSD Power Standards
            developed back in 2010.
Exchange    After you have developed your response you will have an opportunity to share your work
            with other groups.

                                Team 10: Assessment
Context     This round of work is focused on challenging our thinking about the future. Each
            small group has been given a different scenario of the future (2020). Your group’s
            scenario:

                Imagine it is 2020 and PLSD has successfully moved past the rhetoric and
                argument of ‘skills versus knowledge.’ 21st Century Skills like self-direction,
                communication, collaboration, creativity, and innovation are outcomes learners
                at PLSD experience and are successful at. Traditional assessments do not work
                and only prove to stifle these ‘skills.’ PLSD has developed 21st Century
                Assessment Tools and are very successful with them.

Objective   Develop a description of what PLSD looks like in 2020, how this works, and why this
            is the best thing for Papillion-La Vista in order to provide a 21st Century Education.
            Use the following questions to help stimulate your dialog and develop your
            response:
                  What are the assessment and feedback mechanisms that PLSD has put in
                    place in 2020 to reinforce the '21st Century learning environments and
                    experiences' that meet the needs of all students?

                  What will be the keys to making this work?

                  What would we need to do to make this happen?

                  Give examples of several experiences that exemplify how learners and
                   facilitators experience this working.

Time        You have approximately 90 minutes to complete your work – including a working
            lunch.



Process     In your group, use the white wall to brainstorm and collect your ideas and to produce
            your final product (your final product will be on the white walls). For reference your
            group has been provided a copy of the PLSD Power Standards developed back in
            2010.

            work with other groups.

                     Team 11: The High School Experience
Context     This round of work is focused on challenging our thinking about the future. Each
            small group has been given a different scenario of the future (2020).

            Your group’s scenario:

                Imagine it is 2020 and PLSD has a transformed the high school experience to
                be one that all teenagers ‘love!’ All participants – students, facilitators,
                administrators – look forward to these experiences every day and miss them
                when they are doing something else. “High School” is now ‘the coolest thing’
                going for teenagers and they yearn to be a part of it.

Objective   Develop a description of what this looks like – and why this is the best thing for
            Papillion-La Vista in order to provide a 21st Century Education. Use the following
            questions to help stimulate your dialog and develop your response:
                How would this work?

                  What would we need to do to make this happen?

                  What are the essential success factors for an environment like this to work
                   really well?

                  Give examples of several experiences that exemplify how learners
                   experience this, how facilitators experience this, and the community
                   experiences this model.

Time        You have approximately 90 minutes to complete your work – including a working

                                       Team 12: AORTA
Context     This round of work is focused on challenging our thinking about the future. Each small
            group has been given a different scenario of the future (2020).

            Your group’s scenario:

                 Back in the year 2000, Silicon Valley coined a phrase to describe the influence of
                 computing and the internet on our lives. That phrase - Always On, Real Time,
                 Anywhere – describes the nature of this trend. Video conferencing, distance learning,
                 recorded tutorials and ‘at your own pace’ learning experiences are common in 2010.
                 What we used to consider classroom learning can take place online – in both live, real
                 time environments, and recorded, at your own pace environments. Imagine it is 2020
                 and 80% of the learning that used to happen in a school happens at home or some
                 other location – at any time of day. PLSD has become very successful at providing in-
                 person learning experiences that are VERY DIFFERENT from what we used to do.
                 These experiences are very engaging, experiential, brain based (multiple intelligences
                 and learning styles), hands-on, and project or problem based.

Objective   Develop a description of what the in-person and face-to-face learning environment that
            PLSD provides in 2020 looks like – and why this is the best thing for Papillion-La Vista in
                                 st
            order to provide a 21 Century Education. Use the following questions to help stimulate
            your dialog and develop your response:
                 What happens in these environments that is different from back in 2010?

                   What would we need to do to make this happen?

                   What are the essential success factors for an environment like this to work really
                    well?

                   Give examples of several experiences that exemplify how learners experience this,
                    how facilitators experience this, and the community experiences this model.

Time        You have approximately 90 minutes to complete your work – including a working lunch.




Process     In your group, use the white wall to brainstorm and collect your ideas and to produce your
            final product (your final product will be on the white walls).



Exchange    After you have developed your response you will have an opportunity to share your work
            with other groups.
