Young Canadians in a Wired World, Phase III: Life Online | MediaSmarts | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
This report is drawn from a national survey of Canadian youth conducted by MediaSmarts in 2013.

21st Century Fluencies

21st Century Fluencies | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
The 21st Century Fluencies are not about hardware, they are about headware and heartware. 

We need to move our thinking beyond our primary focus on traditional literacy to an additional set of 21st-century fluencies that reflect the times we live in. That’s the essence of the 21st Century Fluencies! Today, it’s essential that all of our students have a wide range of skills that develop the ability to function within a rapidly changing society—skills far beyond those that were needed in the 20th century. These skills are not about technological prowess. The essential 21st Century Fluencies are not about hardware; they are about headwareand heartware! This means critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, innovation, and so much more. These aren’t just for the students, though. The 21st Century Fluencies are process skills that we all need, and there is as much benefit in cultivating them within yourself as within your classroom.

8 ways to think about tech in ways that actually improve the classroom. Bringing technology into the classroom often winds up an awkward mash-up between the laws of Murphy and Moore: What can go wrong, will - only faster.

Cheryl Frose's insight:

Technology...for the right purpose, at the right time, in the right way...can be wonderful. But it needs to be kept in its place.

Everyday Assessment to Support Student Learning: Technology & Assessment: ePortfolios

Everyday Assessment to Support Student Learning: Technology & Assessment: ePortfolios | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

There are many different types of portfolios: classroom writing folders, an artist's portfolio, a teacher's education portfolio, photo albums, etc. and most, perhaps all, of us have used or kept a portfolio at one time or another.   All portfolios are meant to “tell a story”, which makes me think that keeping a portfolio has less to do with the physical object (noun) and more to do with the process of communicating something about us/our journey to a particular audience. An ePortfolio, consequently, should be less like a digital file cabinet and more like a multi-format showcase of student learning.

The following account comes from a veteran HS teacher who just became a Coach in her building. Because her experience is so vivid and sobering I have kept her identity anonymous. But nothing she describes is any different than my own experience in sitting in HS classes for long periods of time. And this report of course accords fully with the results of our student surveys.

At TeachThought, we constantly wrestle with two big questions: How do people learn, and how can they do it better in a constantly evolving context?

In pursuit, the theme of “21st century learning” often surfaces, a popular label that, while perhaps cliche, still seems to be necessary as we iterate learning models, fold in digital media resources, and incorporate constantly changing technology to an already chaotic event (i.e., learning)...

K-12 Educators: Are We Listening to Each Other?

K-12 Educators: Are We Listening to Each Other? | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

To teachers who are accustomed to a certain methodology, a statement such as "This other strategy is better" could be interpreted as "I have not been a good teacher; I've been harming my students." For principals, the subtext for "Effective principals spend 10 hours a week doing classroom walk-throughs" could be understood as "Since I don't get to many visits, I am a bad principal."

We understand that there is no "right" way to approach communication. Instead, we believe, it is about how we, as educators, view others and ourselves. Do we imagine ourselves as experts, convincing others that they must see the world our way? If so, we are more focused on being right than on doing right. Or, do we see ourselves as members of a community given a most precious trust, that of educating our children? Do we recognize the awesome nature of this charge and the logical and moral imperative that we continue to challenge our own thinking?
