This campaign will serve as a road map to the new architecture for American schools, where every learner, regardless of zip code, is on a pathway to productive and sustainable citizenship, high wage employment, economic mobility, and a purpose-driven life.
The result of our hundreds of yearly school visits where we get the opportunity to see high-quality teaching and learning in action. We share stories that highlight best practices, lessons learned and next-gen teaching practice.
1. “Data scientist” Is the New Community Manager: In 2011, data science job openings will see a rise in number similar to the gaggle of community management and social media marketing gigs that materialized out of the ether nearly three years ago.
2. Data Management Will Become a Real Industry: Facebook is becoming an example of allowing data that is accessible and transportable and managed by its rightful owner–you.
3. The Floodgates Are Opening: Data is making its way back to the open; no longer “Why would I make my data available?” but rather ” How do I make my data avaliable?” and “What do I need to know to do it right?”.
4. Big Data Will Become a Regulated Industry: In 2011, the government will step in and start regulating the acquisition, use and distribution of data by Internet companies, starting with the low-hanging fruit, but quickly moving on to less obvious candidates.
5. You’ll Be Sick of Hearing About Data (If You’re Not Already): Expect to see more data meetups, and data conferences, more data-driven jobs and data-driven publishing decisions.
The Getting Smart Staff believes in learning out loud and always being an advocate for things that we are excited about. As a result, we write a lot. Do you have a story we should cover? Email [email protected]
