In this lesson, well use percents, probabilities and expected value to find out.Essential QuestionsHow can we use percents and probabilities to determine expected value?How can we use expected value to compare how much a warranty costs to how much its worth?How can we use this to determine whether to purchase a product warranty?How is the decision to purchase a product warranty like/unlike the decision to purchase health insurance?How do consumers and health insurance companies value insurance differently, and what are the effects of this on health care in the United States?</p> <p>Cell Phone Extravaganza OverviewHow do you pick the right cell phone plan? In this lesson, well use piecewise functions to explore the various voice, messaging and data plans from Verizon and AT&amp;T. Well even look at some of the worst real-world examples of having the wrong plan. Think it doesnt matter? Weve got eighteen thousand ways to disagree!Essential QuestionsHow do we write equations for different types of cell phone plans?How can we use tables, graphs and equations to determine the cheapest plan?How can we apply these skills to text message plans?What are the financial consequences of picking the wrong plan?</p> <p>A major challenge facing educators in the 21st century "is how to design our educational system... in order to produce graduates who are better prepared to take up jobs in a knowledge-based environment characterized by a pervasive use of information communications technology" (Bodomo 2006, 1) 21st Century SkillsGlobal awarenessDigital, information, media and social literacyFinancial, business and economical literacyCreativityCritical thinking and problem solving</p> <p>Communication and collaborationFlexibility and adaptabilityInitiative and self-directionLeadership and responsibilityProductivity and accountability</p> <p>44http://www.21stcenturyskills.org/index.php?option=com_content&amp;task=view&amp;id=254&amp;Itemid=120http://pbl-online.org/end_in_mind/emexplore/emexplore4.html</p> <p>The Partnership for 21st Century Skills (2004) has outlined some essential skills and attributes that a well-educated person should have in the 21st century: Knowledge of core subjects interwoven with 21st-century themes ofglobal awareness;financial, economic, business, and entrepreneurial literacy;civic literacy; andhealth literacy.Learning and innovation skills for an increasingly complex life and work environment, includingcreativity and innovativeness,critical thinking and problem solving, andcommunication and collaboration.Information, media, and technology skills for functioning in a rapidly changing environment, includinginformation literacy,media literacy, and information, communications, and technology literacy.Life and career skills for functioning in a globally competitive society, includingflexibility and adaptability,initiative and self-direction,social and cross-cultural skills,productivity and accountability, andleadership and responsibility.ReferencePartnership for 21st Century Skills. 2004.

May not possess the skills necessary to use the tools to support their own learning this often needs to be taught. Especially reflection and critical analysis where immediacy is a way of lifeProject-based learning in online environments afford an opportunity to develop those skills in controlled instructional situations. </p> <p>Along with greater awareness of computer technologies, learners acquire self-directed learning capabilities. Allowing learners to take control of their own learning through the development of autonomous learning strategies and acknowledging the value in their individual skills and knowledge promotes self-actualization and a commitment to lifelong learning </p> <p>Learner AutonomyActive ParticipationCollaboration and Community BuildingAuthentic Assessment21st Century Skills</p> <p>4546Map It Project Example Math and GeographyHands-onReal-time communicationLiveLesson activities focus on the students immediate environment using functions such as: chat interactive whiteboard, voice over IPPollingDelayed-time activitiesWord processing, presentation software, email and message boards complete a chart or study guideread a book write in their math journalPost in the message board</p> <p>4646Math and geography-based childrens literature with hands-on related activities Cutting-edge technology tools.
