A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills

A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills | 21st C Education | Scoop.it

Disconnects between policy mandates/supports and desired practice were found in most of the schools and all of the systems in our sample. For example, teachers were often being asked to innovate while being incented and judged solely by measures of the facts that students had acquired through traditional means, or given ICT to use without related curricular materials and models for ways to use it powerfully and effectively in subject matter learning. It was rare that teachers experienced standards, curriculum, professional development, assessments, and incentives that all aligned to support the development of students’ 21st century skills.

It is not the desired practice which is disconnected, but more an issue of did policy makers actually go into classrooms and have conversations with teachers.

There are so many wonderful blogs that it’s impossible to list them all here,  so I’m listing the ones that have been most relevant to my own professional development. As such, they should be relevant to any teacher who wants to turn online teaching and/or publishing into a fully-fledged career.

Teaching Students Better Online Research Skills | EdWeek.org | 21st C Education | Scoop.it

 

Sara Shaw, an elementary school teacher in Avon, Mass., realized she needed to teach online research skills several years ago when her students kept turning in projects riddled with misinformation. The flawed material often came from websites the students used. They took the information as fact, when it often was just someone's personal opinion.

 

Ms. Shaw thinks teaching online research skills is even more critical than it was just a few years ago. More than ever, information is literally at the fingertips of students through smartphones, tablet computers, and other digital devices.

 

"They will go on Google and type a word, and that is the extent of their research skills," said Ms. Shaw, who taught 5th grade for 10 years and now teaches special education at Ralph D. Butler Elementary School. "There is so much more to doing research on the Internet."

 

She is one of many teachers and librarians who are explicitly teaching online research skills, such as how to evaluate a website's credibility, how to use precise keywords, and how to better mine search engines and databases.

 

In November 2012, the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project released a study that surveyed 2,067 Advanced Placement and National Writing Project teachers. It found that while most teachers agreed that the Internet provides a wealth of information to students, they also said students often don't have the digital-literacy skills to wade through that information. Forty-seven percent of the teachers surveyed said they "strongly agree" and another 44 percent said they "somewhat believe" that courses and content focusing on digital literacy should be incorporated into the school curriculum.

"Chances are your first or second answer is classroom management and that’s in the ordinary classroom.  With one-to-one classroom technology integration, classroom management takes on a whole new meaning.  Not only must you manage between 20 and 30 students, their individual learning paths, and the classroom environment, but you must also help them to use technology tools in ways that deepen learning, enhance creativity, and maximize time on task whenever possible. Make no mistake—this is no mean feat!"

Hope lies in not simply playing to strengths, but to seizing every challenge, change, stressor and failure as an opportunity to grow, evolve and expand the power of our minds, the strength of our brains and the capacity of our hearts.

 

Courage lies in our ability develop a whole new mind set, skill set and heart set that optimizes the unbridled passion, purpose and potential of humans to do better, rather than simply living or working faster than ever before.

While you can convert PowerPoint to video formats using a native PowerPoint feature, the same cannot be said for the Prezi application.

We’ve certainly come a long way but some things seem hauntingly similar to many years ago. For example, Thomas Edison said in 1925 that “books will soon be obsolete in schools. Scholars will soon be instructed through the eye.” I’m pretty sure this is exactly what people are saying these days about the iPad.

Fighting Facebook, a Campaign for a People’s Terms of Service | The Nation

Fighting Facebook, a Campaign for a People’s Terms of Service | The Nation | 21st C Education | Scoop.it

 

Facebook is on the defensive again. Members of the social networking site sued the company for co-opting their identities in online ads, and Facebook agreed to revise its “Statement of Rights and Responsibilities” and offer a $20 million settlement. The case has drawn less attention than the dorm disputes portrayed in The Social Network, but the impact is far wider. An underpublicized aspect of the dispute concerns the power of online contracts, and ultimately, whether users or corporations have more control over life online.
 
Similar class action suits have been leveled against the popular photo-sharing application Instagram, and the mother of all platforms, Google. Fed up with the “contracts” these companies force on their customers, some people are finally striking back.

 

While a few of the particulars here are new—filtered photos or copyrightable tweets—the legal dilemma is actually very old. As social media users, our rights are established through non-negotiable, one-sided and deliberately opaque “terms of service” contracts. These documents are not designed to protect us. They are drafted by corporations, for corporations. There are few protections for the users—the lifeblood powering social media.

 

In return for driving the profits of social media companies, users get free software. But too often, the cost is unpredictable vulnerability: confusing, generic contracts that give companies control over your data, prose, pictures, personal information and even your freedom to simply quit a given website.

 

This is a classic example of form contract abuse—when a single, powerful party pushes a contract onto a disparate group of other parties.

 

Think of that cellphone contract you didn’t read, or the waiver you must sign to go river-rafting. Many companies use form contracts as a blanket waiver to protect against future liability, a trend discussed in The Fine Print, a book by Pulitzer Prize–winning author David Cay Johnston.

 

The problem, however, extends beyond the ruthless profitability imperative. As Margaret Jane Radin documents in Boilerplate: The Fine Print, Vanishing Rights, and the Rule of Law>, a type of fine-print bullying has renegotiated the corporate-consumer relationship. Confusing contracts now degrade “traditional notions of consent, agreement, and contract,” she writes, by tricking people into forfeiting their “core rights,” such as the right to speak freely, control personal information or resort to courts for protection.

 

The impact of boilerplate is especially acute for minors. Teenagers contract with online companies without understanding the vulnerabilities created upon clicking “I agree.”

 

Today, the law protects these arrangements by assuming they were fairly negotiated, and thus reflect a “meeting of the minds” by equal parties. That is weird.

The Pedagogy Wheel is the mobile learning of the ongoing importance of Bloom’s Taxonomy which is fundamental to good teaching and learning. Digital technology learning identifies which tool to be used at different levels of thinking. The pedagogy wheel serves a creative pedagogical use for learning goals which are higher order thinking skills. The action verbs of higher order thinking relates directly to the Draft Australian Curriculum Technologies sub-strand of digital Technologies processes and production skills which states that when using digital technologies students will use a range of digital systems and their components and peripherals. These apps are to serve a creative pedagogical use in mathematical higher order thinking classroom.
