    I'm working on a designing a 21st century learner themed course for my district.
    GUIDING QUESTIONS are:
    What are key elements of 21st Century Learning?
    What are the characteristics of 21st century learners?
    How do we build momentum in developing the curriculum and assessments that reflect 21st century skills?
    How do we integrate 21st century tools and strategies into our classroom practice?
    How do we establish an optimal 21st century environment in which teachers can teach and students can learn?

    This is a huge task and I'm asking for any ideas or resources you may have. Thank you!

    The New York State Conference is going on over the next 3 days and there may be some resources found their. nyscate.wikispaces.com

    The wiki lists all of the 1 hour sessions. I am conducting a workshop on Tuesday. The topic is Personal Learning Networks. The tag is nyscate08g04. The google url is http://docs.google.com/Presentation?id=dgv7gc2d_15c77cwtc9

    All 1 hour sessions are recorded and uploaded as podcasts as well. Hopefully you can find something here.

    Hi, Shannon. I am teaching a one-credit short course on the tech literate student. I don't have it developed the way I want yet, but have a start. Please take a look at the wiki and use what you can from it. Toy Waterman

    Shannon,

    Thanks for opening up this great topic. As we continue to evolve, we'd much very like to learn more with everyone as well. Let us know how we can be of help.

    Meanwhile, here is our vision where Diigo can play a role in education:


    " The 21st century calls for knowledge workers who can effectively utilize the vast array of information that resides on the internet and who are capable of processing the information collaboratively with others. Project-based learning is an effective way to cultivate the skills of finding, organizing, synthesizing, and presenting information, as well as the social skills of working in groups, all of which are necessary in the knowledge-based economy. Diigo is the perfect tool for this kind of exploratory and collaborative learning.

    Diigo is an effective tool for teaching as well. Diigo's features allow teachers to highlight critical features within text and images on web pages, to collect and organize series of web pages and web sites into coherent and thematic sets, and to facilitate online conversations within the context of the materials themselves. Diigo also allows teachers to collaborate and share resources among themselves.

    Diigo is much more than a simple web annotation or social bookmarking service -- it is a new kind of online research and collaborative research tool that integrates tags and folders, highlighting and clipping, sticky notes, and group-based collaboration, enabling a whole new process of online knowledge management, learning, and teaching in the information age."



    Phase I educator account is just the beginning - lots of work to be done. We welcome your input and suggestion!

    Shannon,

    I was recently referred to this video of Michael Wesch who teaches cultural anthropology at Kansas State University. He had some novel approaches to using a lot of the Web 2.0 capabilities in teaching.
