Science-Technology(SciTech) is replacing Faith-Data as the driving force in Man's world of productive employment. SciTech uses Scientific Principles and engineering to produce products, processes, tools and skill-sets that create more efficient ways of doing things that change our world and the way we live-in it — effectively creating a NEW world. Successfully coping with "NEW" requires learning how-to accept and employ the unfamiliar (aka, "adaptability").
"ADAPTABILITY” is the ultimate competitive advantage
in America's 21st Century workforce.
Pathways To Tech" can prepare the uninitiated to become successfully employed in the SciTech-driven world of well-paying jobs with a future that is/will-be driving the 21st Century U.S. global economy. Actually, the jobs are already here (U.S. BLS: 600,000 jobs). Employers can't find qualified employees to fill them. Caveat:To travel the "Pathways To Tech" you first need to recognize the connection between SciTech and today's US K–20 Data-transfer-based schooling of STEM, Diplomas, Degrees, et al. There isn't any! Datais yesterday's news/skills that occurred in yesterday's environment, which was helpful in the pre-scientific, static world of the 20th Century — but has little or no value in the SciTech-driven, dynamic, competitive world of America's 21st Century "decades of change" — which will require adaptability.. Learninghow-to acquire and practice "adaptability" is presented as "supplemental schooling" in Pathways To Tech and does not conflict with anything taught in current US K–20 data-based/data-driven schooling.
There are six skill sets that are the common denominators of "adaptability". These are absolutely essential for traveling the Pathways To Tech and surviving and thriving in the U.S. 21st Century SciTech-driven world of school, work, and politics —
1)Test-taking skills (an introductory 3-hour "Protocol") 2)Separating "Data" from "Knowledge" skills 3)Short-term / long-term memory skills 4)Oral / Physical / Graphic Communication skills 5)Attitude Modulation and Control 6)Gender-based Collaboration skills (building synergy)
To acquire SciTech-level "adaptability" —
you need to know that our Physiology controls our capabilities and our competences — which dictate our options and opportunities. Our "brains" control our Physiology. All can be optimized. That is the least you need to know to successfully segue into the SciTech world where "adaptability" is the ultimate competitive advantage.
Protocol#1: “Raising your Test-Scores by
bringing the 'Right' Brain on-line”
Wesupply schools/campuses with recruiting Materials that
they can handout or post, which can fill their classes —
SciTechPREP is a series of "Protocols" that provide students with the necessary how-to capabilities for developing 21st Century SciTech skill-sets and competencies for successfully traveling the Pathways To Tech and qualifying for SciTech's well-paying jobs with a future ($16–$32–$68/hour take-home). Protocols consist of 1–hour sessions/quorums, 2–3 times a week, for 1–26 weeks. SciTechPREPintroduces Protocol #1: "How to raise
your test-scores by bringing the 'Right' Brain on-line" — Test-scoresdrive Life in America. Students/employees can learn how-to raise their standardized test-scores (NAEP, ACT, SAT, Certification, Qualification, Classification, etc.) 12% to 16%. "How-to raise your test-scores by bringing the 'Right' Brain on-line" consists of 3 classes, 50-minutes, each on alternating weekdays. That's less than 3 hours. "As my grandfather used to say — a boy can do it as well as a man if he only knows how." Class Overview (PDF; 1 page) SciTechPREP'sDegrees of Competence testify to what the holder "can-do" in terms SciTech employers will respect and employ. Employers will understand that: 1) The applicant knows how to connect-the-dots and create "Big Picture" perspectives — leading to self-imposed quality control. 2) Applicant's "adaptability" fits into their company's work-flow faster, reducing the cost of hiring/training.
There are 2 Pathways To Tech for
expanding and enhancing financial options and opportunities.
Pathway#1 is for individuals who want to participate in the 21st
Century U.S. SciTech-driven workforce of well-paying jobs with a future.
Pathway#2 is for communities that want to attract SciTech companies that
will provide their residents with well-paying jobs with a future and improve the quality
of life in their communities (better schools, parks, bike paths, side-walks, parking and water).
Pathway #1 can be offered at a local High School in conjunction with its feeder Middle Schools — raising standardized test-scores (grades 7–12), and providing their students and graduates with expanded options and opportunities in their life-after-school, while raising real estate values in the High School's attendance area,.
CommunityColleges can offer Pathways To Tech and its access to SciTech employment through their Career Centers, and accelerate student learning in all classes.
BothHigh Schools and Career Centers are eligible for Federal Grants for offering SciTechPREP's "Protocols" to their students. It's almost a slam-dunk.
Caveat: Onlyabout 40% of the U.S. workforce will be capable and comfortable working in SciTech.
Pathway #2 is a bit more complicated since it adds the dimension of attracting well-paying jobs with a future to communities that do not have a reputation for having a highly skilled workforce.
Pathway#2 has the advantage of access-to and qualifying for very large Federal Grants. Dueto its multi-faceted approach, we have profiled Pathway #2 as a text outline that offers a quick read overview —
Building a SciTech Workforce(PDF; 2 pages) Successin SciTech is dictated by one's "adaptability" and ability to "4A" into their workspace/workplace = Anticipate, Adjust, Adapt, Adopt. Plus, accelerate their metabolism to SciTech levels. You can learn how-to here.
Believeit or not, the "travelers" on the Pathways
To Tech with the most potential for becoming
Tech-Smarter are high school, college and university
football players. Becoming Tech-Smarter may be the
best option many football players have for obtaining
a stable, secure and satisfying financial future.
“The93% of varsity football players, who will
neverplayat the next level, deserve something
morefor theirtime and effort than the possibility
ofa concussion. The PathwaysTo Tech give them
thatbetter possibility. Acareer as a Man —
inthe world of Men.”
ThePathways To Tech provide the SciTech
perspectives that make travelers — Tech-Smarter
and more employable.
The"vehicle" that carries "travelers" down the
Pathways To Tech is SciTechPREP. SciTechPREP
provides the tools, techniques and skill-sets (Protocols) that develop "adaptability"..
SciTechPREP has 6 "Protocols" that can be traveled at
different times, at different speeds, with performance
standards, and some caveats. Traveling
Pathways To Tech's SciTechPREP
is a do-it-yourself (DIY) series
SciTechPREP’s6 “Protocols” (aka, skill-sets)
that build “adaptability”
Protocol#1: Raise your test-scores by bringing the 'Right' Brain on-line. Having the 'Right' Brain on-line is a "must" in SciTech.
Protocol#2: Enhance verbal and visual communication skills to SciTech collaborative workplace levels. Protocol#3: Expand recall-on-demand knowledge and reference capabilities. Listening to Lectures is a waste of everybody's time. We only learn from discussions that engage both speakers and listeners. In an exchange of information, all participants' knowledge-banks should be expanded. Learn how-to convert a lecture into a discussion. Protocol#4: Tune up physiology and mental acuity. Accelerate recognition, reaction and appropriate response capabilities. Be quicker off-the-marks, "ahead of the curl" and anticipate the direction of the conversation. Protocol#5: Putting a situation/circumstance into perspective by acquiring "Contextual Thinking" skills. It's the core competency in SciTech's connecting-the-dots to build a "Big Picture" and is the root of adaptability.
Protocol#6: Develop those Collaboration capabilities that are the rules-of-the-road to independence and success in the 21st Century SciTech workplace. (SciTech management = MBO + Collaboration.) (Google, building contractors, sailors, row-crop farmers, etc.)
DougMcMillon,Wal-Mart Inc.'s new CEO, said he is going to incorporate "Silicon-Valley-esque metabolism" into Wal-Mart's workforce to improve productivity and profits. Pathways To Tech can do the same for a community's workforce.
