    From Dept of Ed & Child Development, SA. "We have thought deeply about what we value for our students' learning, how this is represented in the learning areas through the essence, and how this essence helps us work with all the components of the learning area.
    In this section we work with our colleagues using the BitL tool to ensure our pedagogy brings the essence of the learning areas to life in the classroom. It helps us engage our learners as scientists, as mathematicians, as historians, and as great communicators - so that they not only know about the important understandings and develop the skills within each learning area, but can bring this understanding to bear in their everyday contexts in powerful ways."

The Learning Innovation Cycle How Disruption Creates Lasting Change - 2 views

  •  
    "In education, most of the talk around disruptive innovation revolves around education technology, owing to the potential scale of these technologies, and desperation of education to revise itself. But innovation doesn't necessarily have to be a matter of economics, as Christensen originally thought of the term, nor of technology, which is the most tempting angle. It can, but there are other disruptors that can lead to innovation that have little to do with either. What might be more interesting than the disruptors, then, might be the process itself. "

Minecraft in Education…Not Just A Game | RafranzDavis.com - 1 views

  •  
    "Minecraft is more than a game. It's like having a blank canvas to do and be anything. It's like having a master key to your greatest adventure.
    The worst thing that can happen if we let kids play is that they will learn much more than our standards sometimes allow. Those who play minecraft know this but the problem is that most people in charge of schools and curriculum do not. So, how can we change that?"

    "Really be cognizant of the digital tools you're picking and why you are picking them."
    She put together a list of favorite digital tools for the social studies classroom and shared them during an edWeb webinar. She emphasizes that, as with any classroom technology, teachers need to be careful not to just substitute a tech tool for an analog one.

What is 'competence' and how should education incorporate new technology's tools to gen... - 3 views

  •  
    This paper addresses the competences needed in 21st century life especially in
    relation to civic participation, and the educational requirements to foster them in
    young people. New technologies are widely used by young people for informal
    social interaction, video game-playing and giving voice to their views.
    Incorporation of these practices into the classroom has been fairly slow, despite
    their manifest potential for promoting agency and civic engagement. The paper
    argues that this is in part due to the need for a cultural shift in education to
    accommodate them. Currently, many competences young people will need for
    the future world of interactive technology and 'bottom-up' information,
    communication and democracy are mainly being developed through informal
    practices. These competences, which include adaptability, managing ambiguity,
    and agency are discussed in relation to civic participation.
