Title: Insightfully Linking 21st Century Learning to the 21st Century Economy
Lead Author: Roschelle, Jeremy
Abstract: We propose a grand challenge of insightfully linking a 21st century view of how people learn to a 21st century view of how people contribute to a thriving economy. A widespread belief that education drives economic growth underlies policy decisions, research programs, and educational reform efforts. While valid in the most general sense, the underlying research on education and the economy are out of sync with the last two decades of learning science research and only superficially engaged with recent analyses of the drivers of economic growth. Consequently, the research base is too weak to derive theories of action that guide educational interventions, other than the bland admonishment to raise test scores. The National Science Foundation would be especially well poised to address this grand challenge in the important context of how the nation produces a pipeline to STEM talent to drive innovation and growth of scientific knowledge; this context is core to NSFs mission. We see the need for a new transdisciplinary research program that would address this grand challenge by engaging economic and learning scientists along with domain scientists who are concerned with the next generation of leaders.
