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.

What You May Not Know About Blended Learning | eLearning Blog - 1 views

  •  
    "Blended Learning" is often used to define learning solutions that include parts of the content, or experiences, being delivered in different ways. Each may use different instructional methods more appropriate to each lesson or module of content. Whilst everyone seems to have their own view of what a blended solution looks like, most will agree that 21st century "courses" will contain lessons/modules that vary in their media selection, and mode of delivery."
    "Blended learning is not new. Long before the internet, and computer-based training, innovative teachers and designers of instruction have blended a variety of media, and methods, to present learners with a blended learning experience. However, today's use of the term speaks more to our history of migrating completely from the classroom to CBT, and learning from that experience. And finding a place where we all realize there will always be a place for ILT, and CBT, and all micro forms of learning in-between."
