Vision Quest Thinking for Creating Career Development E-Paradigms via Electronic Networked Communities: Building Competencies and Skills at the Rate of Imagination for Global Leadership for Improving Quality of Life.
Groff, Warren H.
This paper focuses on career development for next waves of competent leaders and technically trained workers during e-globalization, one of the most difficult challenges advanced nations face. It contains four sections. First, the paper begins with a brief discussion about Vision Quest (VQ) as a technique within strategic planning, focused primarily on economic and technological variables. Second, an example is briefly described that builds upon advances in science focused on quality of life and for which electronically networked communities for career development could be in an ideal preferred scenario. Third, brief comments are made about "bright light ideas" resulting from a preliminary analysis of "Preparing Tomorrow's Teacher To Use Technology" (PT3) projects and a few related activities. Fourth, conclusions with recommendations are presented for five topics: career development in formal education in traditional format; career development e-paradigms; VQ to create career development in electronically networked communities format; student technology assistants; and human resources development.
