Career and Technical Education

“Career and Technical Education      
This discussion is an opportunity for  you to evaluate how the purposeful integration of technology in  instruction and assessment supports student acquisition of 21st-century  skills and more importantly career and technical education (CTE). In the  past few weeks, you have had the opportunity to consider the inclusion  of technology in teaching and learning as well as the principles of UDL  in practice. Now, we consider how UDL supports the acquisition of  21st-century skills as these relate to career and technical education.  To prepare your response for this discussion, you will review Chapter 5  from the Edyburn text (2013), the 21st-century skills document, and the  ACTE website section on career and technical education (Links to an external site.)  and then evaluate them in relation to the principles of UDL. As always,  reviewing the Instructor Guidance for the week is strongly encouraged  for intellectual elaboration on the topics for the week and additional  assistance for all assessments.
When contemplating 21st-century skills,  associations must be made with respect to creativity, critical  thinking, problem solving and metacognition and a host of relevant life  skills. Keeping in mind your knowledge gained thus far on UDL and 21st century skills. You will review three sources to inform your initial response to the discussion including the ACTE website on Career and Technical Education (Links to an external site.) (CTE), a short video by Inside Schools titled High School: What is Career and Technical Education? (Links to an external site.),  and your own states Department of Education website or local school  district website, specifically, information pertaining to Career and  Technical Education (CTE).
Initial Post: Create an initial response that addresses the following areas.
Analyze in a paragraph Career and Technical Education (CTE) by  giving a succinct summary of your understanding of this area of  education.
Evaluate in a paragraph how the principles of UDL support career and technical education.
Summarize in a paragraph the relationship between the goals of CTE, learner motivation, and acquisition of 21st-century skills.
Describe in a paragraph, or by using a table or some other visual,  what you learned by reviewing your states Department of Education  webpage on CTE and/or your local school districts utilization of CTE.
