Listen to an amazing man with research-based practical ideas on how to teach in and out of the classroom. In fact, his hole-in-the wall experiment may revolutionize how we view organized education. Did I say may? Let me correct myself and say will. Yes, we can now show evidence that learners need facilitators and socially engaging learning activities. If schools won't provide it, teachers will. Join the talk for free and learn all about the experiment and how to move forward for our children and the future of the world:http://www.wiziq.com/course/27123-sugata-mitra  ;

There are pockets of teachers who do see how important this is. I can understand the pressure of teaching to the test though. Senior management in schools need to take responsibility to make this change. Teachers don't understand the social networking tool so difficult to teach....that's what I'm here/there for :)

The 33 Digital Skills Every 21st Century Teacher should Have

The 33 Digital Skills Every 21st Century Teacher should Have | Are you a Global Citizen? | Scoop.it

THE 33 DIGITAL SKILLS EVERY 21ST CENTURY TEACHER SHOULD HAVE

 

21st century teaching skills Med kharbach


Every single teacher is concerned about his/ her teaching practices and the skills involved in this process. How many times have you wondered about a better way to teach the same lesson you have delivered to an eariler class? How often have you used technology to engage your students and improve their learning ? These are some recurring questions we keep regurgitating each time our teaching skills are put to the test.

 

It is amazing how technology has changed the whole world giving rise to new forms of education we never thought of. Our students are more digitally focused than any time before. They spend more time interacting with their mobile devices than they do with their parents or close relatives. Admittedly, this digital boom has both positive and negative impact on our students. Lack of concentration, short attention span, distraction, visual stimulus overload, identity theft, lack of real world socializing, privacy issues, depression, and many more are but a direct result of the growing exposure to this technology. Studies have even proved that multitasking, which some educational technology experts brag about in relation to the use of today's technology, reduces the power of our concentration to the half. We should not, However, only look at the empty side of the cup, the other side is way bigger.

 

There are actually several pluses for the use of technology in education and to try and list them all here is way beyond the scope of this short post. Generally speaking, no two argue over the fact that technology advantages in education ( and in our life at large ) way outnumber its downsides. It is thanks to technology that you are now reading this post and will probably share it with your colleagues.

 

There is no blinking the fact that the type of students we teach today are completely different from last century's. We , definitely, need to look at some of the skills we, as teachers, need to equip ourselves with to better live up to the challenge. Among all the challenges we would have in education, there is not as daunting a challenge as catching students focus and getting them engaged in the learning process. For this particular reason, and in addition to the skills I initially mentioned in 21st Century Teaching Skills article, I would like to provide you with another list of some equally important digital skills that you, as a teacher, need to seriously consider if you want to pave the way for the 21st century teaching. I have added a list of web tools under each skill for teachers to better exploit it.

This article on "the 33 digital skills every 21st century teacher should have" shared with us in the MOLO really provided great insight into the need to "catch students focus and get them engaged in the learning process".  Today's learners expect teachers to embrace and incorporate new technologies in the classroom.  This is a robust resource with a lot of good links to practical applications.

Pinterest is  an online platform that is making such a huge buzz in the world of social media. Focusing on the visual component, Pinterest attracted a huge number of internet surfers and within a few months after its launch, its user data base counted millions.

 

People tend to favor visual attractiveness over the textual one. This is probably understood given how the mind easily and quickly processes and stores visually encoded data compared to the written code.

Benefits of Online, Face-to-Face Professional Development Similar, Study Finds

Benefits of Online, Face-to-Face Professional Development Similar, Study Finds | Are you a Global Citizen? | Scoop.it

Researchers found similar effects on student learning and teacher behavior regardless of whether teachers took part in online or face-to-face professional development.

 

Fishman said that administrators and policymakers should see the findings as further evidence that online teacher professional development, while no silver bullet, can be a viable alternative to the traditional model.

 

"There's some hesitation on the part of teachers who think that online [professional development] is somehow less valuable to them because of a lack of personal connection," Fishman said.

 

"I think this study may make them a little more optimistic."
