A Handy Guide to Everything Teachers Need to Know about Edmodo ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Handy Guide to Everything Teachers Need to Know about Edmodo ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Edmodo is one of the promising web technologies that is making a strong foothold in the field of education. It has been embraced by several school districts and  is being widely used to host online classes and connect students with their teachers. I personally see edmodo as a very robust alternative to the traditional Moodle.

The Connected Learning Manifesto - add your thoughts

The Connected Learning Manifesto - add your thoughts | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

 

"A revolution in technology has transformed the way we can find each other, interact, and collaborate to create knowledge as connected learners." (Connected Learning Manifesto - http://plpnetwork.com/2012/07/23/connected-learning-manifesto/)

 

Justin Marquis wrote suggestions to be added to the Manifesto and to further the discussion about the impact of connected learning. He focused on these topics:
- Connectivity/Collaboration
- Empowerment/Self-Directed Learning
- Creativity/Innovation
- Diversity/Breaking Down Boundaries
- Self-Awareness/Reflection
- Lifelong Learning

 

I really agree with the author’s statement: “Connected Learning helps develop the literacy skills necessary to survive in a hi-tech world.”
http://www.onlineuniversities.com/blog/2012/08/contributing-the-connected-learning-manifesto/

 

The Manifesto wants to hear from you. Add your thoughts, statements, or strong assertions to the Connected Learning Manifesto. - http://plpnetwork.com/2012/07/23/connected-learning-manifesto/

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

The label of “21st Century learning” is vague, and is an idea that we here at TeachThought like to take a swing at as often as possible, including:

 

 –weighing the magic of technology with its incredible cost and complexity

 

–underscoring the potential for well thought-out instructional design

 

–considering the considerable potential of social media platforms against its apparent divergence from academic learning

 

Some educators seek out the ideal of a 21st century learning environment constantly, while others prefer that we lose the phrase altogether, insisting that learning hasn’t changed, and good learning looks the same whether it’s the 12th or 21st century.

 

At TeachThought, we tend towards the tech-infused model, but do spend time exploring the limits and challenges of technology, the impact of rapid technology change, and carefully considering important questions before diving in head-first. 

 

The following take on 21st century learning developed by TeachThought is notable here because of the absence of technology. There is very little about iPads, social media, 1:10 laptops, or other tech-implementation. In that way, it is closer to the “classic” approach to “good learning” than it is the full-on digital fare we often explore.

 

The size of the circles on the map are intended to convey priority.
