I'm interested in Mark expanding on the term culture of failure. I

I miss being young by one year! Damn.

you tell your stories Ski...….
Geoffrey M. Roche
01:18:10
Dr. Ski, we all know you are 35!
Geoffrey M. Roche
01:24:49
As a member of the WHY Generation, I actually find that incredibly uplifting and encouraging. We must continue to challenge the status quo!
akruger
01:25:23
seconded... I like to know how the system/process works before I mobilize in any specified direction
Andrew Flinchbaugh, Messiah University
01:25:42
I second that point Geoffrey! So true!

I agree with Mark on Gen Z. We are failing them because we are not keeping up with general IT Education and professional development for teachers. The Gen Z-ers know more than what is being taught, so they are frustrated. The SIP path at PDE is woefully outdated. Example: Every farm tractor in the US uses hydraulics. Our Ag Mech curriculum doesn't teach hydraulics or the software engineering to develop it. Manufacturers are developing IT, putting it into the machinery, but when it breaks down, there is no one to fix it. This is true for almost everything being manufactured today.
Safronia Perry
01:27:29
I have a millennial and a gen z. They are actually teaching me now.
bgleim
01:27:36
I have to go now...great presentation.
SKI
01:28:33
Geoffrey, baby boomers and others who follow us, need to engage in a seminar that helps us best understand how to support the WHY generation. You are the next generation of our education and business communities and we need to support you as you move us forward.

Thanks, Laura. His comments are right on the money.
Crystal
01:43:56
This is the full information needed so our kids can make good decisions about thier futures. Do guidance counselors have this "full" information to adequately guide students? This is rhetorical, because I know mine did not; although, candidly that was years ago.
Mike Shaull
01:46:32
Question for Mark - What are 3 things we can start doing right now (tomorrow) to better help younger generations prepare for the future?
David Christopher
01:46:42
Crystal, that MUST be a huge focus of schools moving forward. Not just guidance counselors - but all educators. We are entering a new comprehensive planning process and ensuring this is a key component of our student experience is a key piece of the work.
Crystal
01:47:27
David - AGREED! :)
Christy Hawkins
01:49:20
This career tree concept and underlying philosophy is fabulous! Would love to partner with Mark to support community college students in making their "for now" decision and creating a culture where changing their minds is not seen as failure, but innovation! Hoping community colleges can partner with K-12 colleagues to make this a seamless approach.
John Kooti
01:49:56
I appreciate the opportunity to be included in this important workshop. Very powerful message from the presenter. Please reach out if I can be of any assistance. I need to go to another meeting. Have a wonderful day!
V Rodgers, PA
01:50:24
Laura, can you ask how we engage students from resource challenged communities? What lessons can be applied to business leaders, community leaders, and educators to ensure we are providing equity and opportunity? We know many are not looking at lifestyle, as much as they are dealing with food insecurity, housing, etc.?
SKI
01:51:55
Start at HACC and transfer to industry, a four-year college or the military.
Debi Swarner
01:54:51
Question for Mark: Have you worked with partners that have developed "support trees" to help the why generation to navigate their routes to passion? Can you share some of the ways that other communities have partnered together after hearing your message?
JWF
01:55:03
SKI you must mean transfer to HU for a STEM career!
Crystal
01:55:50
Shifting parental mindsets is also critical. I understand that CV was starting down that path. I look forward to seeing how CAEDC, our Chambers, and business leaders continue to collaborate with the educational infrastructure to realign and proactively approach new effective pathway paradigm(s).
SKI
01:56:05
Yes, JWF, HU is our go to STEM institution!
SKI
01:57:08
….after students gain an outstanding STEM education for the first two years of their collegiate experience.
SKI
01:57:15
At HACC
Rick Coplen

Thank you, Commissioner Foschi! We are pleased to have a great partnership with the high schools in Cumberland County. We also have training partnerships with businesses in Cumberland County and look forward to becoming the portable training department for more businesses. WE are also grateful to the outstanding superintendent at Cumberland Valley HS where we receive more high school students than any of the 65 high schools we serve in our 11-county service region.

David Christopher

We have to change the questions from what do you want to be/do to what problems do you want to solve. I love the idea of incorporating expected lifestyle into this discussion process. Thanks this was great.
