A New Role for CTE
Horne, Mary
Techniques: Connecting Education and Careers (J1), v85 n4 p10-11 Apr 2010
The struggle to reach the Millennium Generation, known as the Millennials, is evident in the concentration of professional development courses focusing on methods of educating these high-tech students, many of whom have short attention spans and very little interest in their teachers' "antiquated" teaching practices. The ultimate goal of these seminars and in-services is to raise test scores and school ranking while attempting to prepare this generation for the adult world of work and citizenship. Educators in all fields feel the pressure; more expectations are falling on career and technical education (CTE) teachers than ever before. This article discusses the important role that technology and CTE play in improving education to meet the needs of 21st century learners.
