The world is changing fast, and schools need to change appropriately to prepare learners for successful integration into our 21st century economy and society. This podcast is a recording of a presentation I shared on May 9, 2007 for the Rotary Club in Duncan, Oklahoma. I focused on key themes in recent books by Tom Friedman, Richard Florida, and Dan Pink in this short presentation. Check out the podcast shownotes for links to my presentation slides as well as referenced resources. I would welcome your feedback on this presentation, especially ideas to make this more effective and better if I am able to share a similar message with other civic organizations in the future.

    Excellent presentation! One of the toughest part of a presentation to a civic club is the limited time. Suggest going forward that you ALWAYS leave at least 5 minutes for questions. It is frustrating to delete important information, but many of the best presentations I have heard have presented a few, key points and then open it up for audience comments and questions. Another way to say that, is allow for at least 5 minutes of speaker-audience intereation vs a 100% passive audience response.
