One question that arose in the presentation today was regarding what might be happening across SUNY campuses for P-16 partnerships. The document gives us a snapshot: http://www.highered.nysed.gov/kiap/documents/CompendiumFall2008vers...

Eric's Overview for this topic:

"Hart Research Associates and edBridge Partners conducted a telephone survey last fall [2013] of 104 public school district superintendents and 101 public and private two- and four-year college university system leaders, based on a national sample." (http://bit.ly/NyZRBY)

This study showed that "Most district superintendents (90 percent) and college system heads (80 percent) say that collaboration between the two sectors is extremely or very important." As educators, we should be supporting our learners in developing life-long learning skills. There are many examples of the fantastic work in educational technology, blended learning and online learning that K-12 educators are using today. Equally, there are many examples of the same in Higher Education. We need to build BRIDGE programs between these two areas, not only to continue fanning the fire of knowledge in our learners, but also to streamline the passing of the educational baton between K-12 educators/instructional designers and their Higher Education counterparts.

How can we predict our future technological and pedagogical needs in Higher Ed. if we are not paying attention to our "rear view mirrors"? How can K-12 educators prepare their learners for success in Higher Ed., as well as careers, if they are not looking at the horizon ahead of them?

This 20-minute presentation will discuss some of the research and projects currently present that support and/or build these BRIDGES between K-12 and Higher Education. There will be time after the presentation for sharing of current practices in this area from attendees as well as ideas for collaborating on these ideas on a greater level.
