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.

9 Learning Tools Every 21st Century Teacher Should Be Able To Use - 5 views

  •  
    The 21st century teacher is in the critical spot-of mastering constantly evolving technology and digital learning tools-the same tools their students use every day.
    In this post 9 such tools are discussed. The list is not meant to be exhaustive or even authoritative and is subjective. As this is the 21st century, things will change but, here and now, the authors suggest that this is a fairly accurate litmus test of what the kinds of tools the average 21st century teacher can be expected to use and master."

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."

Teaching Writing With Technology? Blogging, Blogging, Blogging - 3 views

  •  
    Helping students to cultivate the skills needed for writing is often about cultivating a love of writing. Every student needs to be able to express themselves clearly, concisely and intelligently, whatever they are going to end up doing in later life. "The best way to help them develop those skills is to make writing personal and give them a vested interest in communication. Blogs have become one of the most popular website formats in recent years. Blogging websites have become the essential ways for many people to broadcast their personal stories, challenges and insights. This has created both a new generation of budding writers as well as a generation with a keen interest in the stories of others. Blogging offers an immersive experience. Students are simply encouraged to begin a blog chronicling their life story or a subject that ignites their interest. That's when the skills are picked up and developed as a matter of course. The initial blogging assignment should be simple, but at the same time offer a bit of a challenge." Post offers some useful advice about blogging.
