Given all this opportunity, how do we reconceptualize what graduates should know and be able to do?
Another way to frame and communicate learning expectations is to ask students to complete and present 20 projects (or, more broadly successful learning experiences) — four to six per year over three or four years including:
Solve a local problem (community service)
Launch a business or sustainable initiative (entrepreneurship)
Build a mobile app (for the business/initiative)
Secure and serve a customer with marketing services
Share a global context (comparative analysis across time/subjects)
Conduct a science experiment and publish the results
Publish 40 editorials, reviews, or reflections (individual)
Publish 2 major works: papers, books, or sites (team)
Explain 10 emerging implications of artificial intelligence on lives/livelihoods
Produce and present public art (performance, exhibit)
Apply to a valuable postsecondary experience (college or equal)
Data & AI literate
Resourceful problem solvers & entrepreneurs
Experienced project managers
Healthy conscientious neighbors
If graduation requirements were described as 20 projects and 10 microcredentials, it would allow students to attack the requirements in their own way and at their own pace often working in teams and cohorts.
