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.

10 Ways To Use Mobile Devices in the Classroom | Edudemic - 1 views

  •  
    "It is pretty much a given these days that students have mobile phones, tablets, and e-readers. Leveraging what your students already have and already know how to use is a smart idea - even if you aren't implementing a full-on BYOD classroom environment. There are many ways to have students use their mobile devices in the classroom in a format geared towards learning rather than for leisure. The infographic in this post takes a look at ten fairly general ways to use devices in the classroom. The general nature of some of the recommendations makes it a great starting point if this is a newer concept for you or for a particular group that you're working. "
