9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning | C21 learning: ideas and tools for teachers | 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.

Best Places To Educate Yourself Online For Free

Best Places To Educate Yourself Online For Free | C21 learning: ideas and tools for teachers | Scoop.it
The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn.

 

All education is self-education. Period. It doesn’t matter if you’re sitting in a college classroom or a coffee shop. We don’t learn anything we don’t want to learn.

 

Those people who take the time and initiative to pursue knowledge on their own are the only ones who earn a real education in this world.

 

Take a look at any widely acclaimed scholar, entrepreneur or historical figure you can think of. Formal education or not, you’ll find that he or she is a product of continuous self-education.

News and Threat Research: Mobile Malware Gets in the Top 10 Viruses

News and Threat Research: Mobile Malware Gets in the Top 10 Viruses | C21 learning: ideas and tools for teachers | Scoop.it

Up to now, mobile malware were certainly growing, but still minor compared to PC malware. Well, this is about to change. We have recently acknowledged a mobile malware getting in our top 10 virus activity, where usually there were only PC malware. The (sad) winner is Android/Plankton.B!tr, with a record prevalence of 4.42% (note: prevalence is the number of new hits in a given time frame divided by the number of fortigates reporting during that same interval of time).

 

This would currently rank it as the 6th most active virus - PC malware included. Actually, Plankton (also known as Counterclank and NewyearL) is a very intrusive form of advertisement which changes your browser’s home page, adds bookmarks, shortcuts or records your search queries. Some other AV vendors classify it as an adware, anyway, what’s for sure is that end-users won’t want it on their phones… and the fact is that it is more and more wide spread…

 

===> This definitely is a new milestone in mobile malware’s history. I take the opportunity to draw your attention on the mobile world. <===

Five Ways to Bring High-Tech Ideas into Low-Tech Classrooms

Five Ways to Bring High-Tech Ideas into Low-Tech Classrooms | C21 learning: ideas and tools for teachers | Scoop.it

Even the most wired classrooms know the screeching silence of that great technological dis: “Unable to Connect to Server.” It’s the 21st century classroom’s equivalent of nails on a chalkboard. But whether you’re trying to connect kids to learning in a fully loaded classroom or one with no technology – or even if it’s at the kitchen table during homework time – high-tech ideas can translate and be relevant in low-tech environments.

 

More than just stop-gap measures for tech-less teaching environments, these no-tech ideas can actually help students deepen their digital literacy by giving them an opportunity to see, explore, and understand the parts and purpose of the digital media they take for granted – tweets and status updates, for example – by recreating them in an analog context. Here are five simple ways to help students tap into learning using high-tech ideas and low-tech tools (i.e. pen, paper, brain).

Malicious Web Apps: How to Spot Them, How to Beat Them

Malicious Web Apps: How to Spot Them, How to Beat Them | C21 learning: ideas and tools for teachers | Scoop.it
These days, a Web app can be malware. Here’s what you need to know about this emerging threat, and what to watch for.

 

 

Tim Keanini, CTO of nCircle, says cyberattackers are talented, creative developers who are motivated to find innovative ways to part you from your money or information.

 

Typically, a malicious Web app is a form of Trojan horse: The app claims to be something else--and it may in fact run some legitimate utility or application--but once you click it, it runs malicious code in the background that may compromise your system or secretly download other malicious payloads from the Internet.
Speaking of Web apps, Camp warns, "While they allow increased functionality within the browser, users should be aware of how deeply into your system they may be able to reach."

 

===> Don't assume that you're safe if you avoid Microsoft Windows. Web apps do frequently target specific vulnerabilities, and Windows is often a primary focus, but Web apps--both benign and malicious--are fundamentally platform-agnostic. <===

Pinterest has taken off in the past few months. According to a Shareholic study, it exceeds reddit, Google+, Linkedin, and YouTube as a referral source. It may seem as though everyone you know is Pinning something to the online bulletin boards to share their favorite articles, collections, and items available online.

 

This is a great social networking tool that you can use for educational purposes, whether you are a teacher or a student.

 

This tool can make it possible to create boards for specific projects and to collect and share lesson resources.
