Web Exclusive - Hands On vs. Hands Up: Technology-Enabled Knowledge Building in High School | Canadian Education Association (CEA)

Web Exclusive - Hands On vs. Hands Up: Technology-Enabled Knowledge Building in High School | Canadian Education Association (CEA) | 21 century education | Scoop.it

"In a landscape in which learners can be creators of ideas, it is vital for high schools to become technology-enabled learning environments that are sharply focused on knowledge building, idea improvement, and collaboratively creating community knowledge. Most students use personal connectivity for socializing and play, not for knowledge building, exploring problems, or building on each other’s ideas. They need engaged teachers more than ever to make the leap from digital technology as play to digital technology as a tool for knowledge creation. If we really want our children to face the challenges of the future with confidence and skill, we must teach them not only that they can acquire current knowledge, but also that they can help shape what their society comes to accept as knowledge. Participatory digital technologies and new social media landscapes, combined with engaged teaching and designs for learning, offer new opportunities for knowledge building and interconnected relationships."  Canada in Edcuation shares more on 21 century learners!

In Defense of Introverts - Huffington Post

In Defense of Introverts - Huffington Post | 21 century education | Scoop.it

In Defense of IntrovertsHuffington Post[4] “Reimagining the Classroom: Opportunities to Link Recent Advances in Pedagogy to Physical Settings.”So far, I’ve cited the merits of the playground– the loudest, craziest, most running-aroundiest environment for kids you can imagine – as a point of inspiration for school design.I’ve espoused the potential of community-oriented schools to motivate learning and, somewhat grandiosely I’ll admit, change the world.

I think I’ve uncovered a bias. In me, and in architecture at large.

For years, Western culture has valued and rewarded natural born extroverts in its effort to breed out-going, sociable, go-get-’em type citizens. (For two intelligent, chuckle-inducing narratives on the plight of the introvert, check out Jonathan Rauch’s touchstone piece in The Atlantic and Susan Cain‘s fabulous TED Talk).

In my zeal to present solutions to the obstacles facing education, I too got caught in the trap. To rectify this situation, I will – once again – examine schools; but this time, I take a more balanced approach. Today I take into account that bullied, forgotten group: introverts.
