Cultural Competence

profilelearner12
  • Video Analysis (3 points): Address the following five guiding statements:

    1. Describe a culturally relevant learning experience in which Nick could have participated within his early high school years that may have been able to successfully meet his academic and personal needs.
    2. Using Nick’s interest in computers as a form of his cultural identity, describe the cultural competencies that were most likely taught and/or applied within Nick’s school (i.e., not the computer camp, but the school system that Nick eventually left). 
    3. Examine the 4C skills (a) creativity and innovation, (b) critical thinking and problem solving, and (c) communication and collaboration that are presented in Learning and Innovations Skills. Determine which of these skills you perceive are most likely relevant to Nick’s current position as a programmer in an advertising firm and which of these skills you perceive are not adequately addressed in typical classroom environments today.
    4. Evaluate the relationship between the cultural competencies identified above in item two and the learning and innovation skills described in item three, and then consider whether cultural competencies are represented in the 21st century skills. Describe in what ways.
    5. Explain how the acquisition of learning and innovation skills through culturally relevant learning opportunities can lead to greater student success in the classroom and in the real world.
