The Biggest "Game-Changer" in Education

The Biggest "Game-Changer" in Education | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Change is the one constant that we will always have in our world and if we do not grow and learn to embrace it, then we will become irrelevant.  This mindset towards learning is only one part of the solution; making the connections with our learners is also equally (if not more) significant.

Les Howard's insight:

Important point, reminds me of Gandhi's comment about being the change you want to see.

A simple short article, but with a good point. It's not about the physical technology, it's about what it enables.

Katja Kranjec's curator insight, September 4, 2013 8:21 AM

I agree with the fact that there's no single way of learning a language, we should change the way we think about technology and be open to new ideas and approaches.

Critical Thinking - a look at some of the principles involved

This short video (5 minutes) provides a great overview on critical thinking. Some of the points made are: evaluate information and thought in a disciplined way, helping us refine our thought process; examine our biases; seek out knowledge and evidence; have an attitude of curiosity; widen our perspective; embrace skepticism, understanding claims, assumptions and biases; recognize the barrier of thinking in false dichotomies (black and white); and much more.

Looks more like a walk down an exhibit hall of vendors than skill/talent tied to teaching & learning.
Rod Murray's comment, February 13, 7:21 PM
If every teacher had this skill set, that would dramatically change teaching and learning. The "vendors" are, contrary to your suggestion, mostly free technologies that can and do change teaching and learning.
Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 19, 5:10 AM

These and many other tools are available. But if you are a teacher, what do you think? Is it really necessary to have all these skills? There is so much content readily available online and if you can organise to prepare materials in teams, or have access to a PLN on or offline, then you can share the load. 

 

Some teachers and content creators have specific skills and their expertise can be used or accessed by anyone. Personally, I think it's good for teachers to be aware of the digital possibilities for their teaching context, but it is generally unrealistic for anyone to expect all teachers to become skilled in so many different areas. 

 

Is it not better to pick fewer areas more relevant to you and focus on them? Be a master of a few areas useful to you, not a jack of all trades feeling stressed that you are master of none.
