To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society

To Advance Education, We Must First Reimagine Society | 21 century education | Scoop.it
Why haven't education reform efforts amounted to much? Because they start with the wrong problem, says John Abbott, director of the 21st Century Learning Initiative. Overhauling the educational paradigm means replacing the metaphor — the concept of the world and its inhabitants as machine-like entities — that has shaped the education system, as well as many other aspects of our culture.

The 7 Important Literacies of The 21st Century Education ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The 7 Important Literacies of The 21st Century Education ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21 century education | Scoop.it

Literacy is a deceptively broad topic  that can be approached from various lenses. Schoolars from Plato to James Paul Gee have extensively written on the topic, each arguing for the validity of the theoretical lens through which they see it. Going through these theories I find myself inclining more to the progressivist camp or the " New Literacies" camp. Obviously,we are not in front of a single literacy but rather multiple literacies. The momentum of this  multiplicity of literacies has tremendously increased with the introduction of technology.

Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

Amen to all these literacies in 21st century education.  Add biblical literacy and you have a well rounded scholar :)

I couldn't agree more. As teachers, our role must change to one that enables, guides, personalises and embraces digital technology as a fundamental part of student learning. The most dangerous thing we can do to our students is to keep doing what our teachers and professors did to us:
