"Overall the diagram offers a nice framework for the concept not of 21st century learning, but 21st century pedagogy by focusing on several core components of modern learning: metacognition (reflection), critical thinking, technology, and problem and project-based learning."

Tom Hood's curator insight, January 26, 2013 9:58 AM

Imagine getting all of the key notes of the thought leaders in the conference pushed to you in real time. That is why we love Twitter with our conferences.

 

We have found twitter to be a great learning augmentation and support tool for conferences and key leanring events. We use a hashtag and then produce a tweetbook post conference and share with attendees. These community notelbooks are great to recap conferences in blog posts, share learning with people unable to attend, and extend the insights from the conferences. 

Mary Perfitt-Nelson's curator insight, January 26, 2013 4:53 PM

Twitter can move your professional learning in ways you never dreamed.

7 Excellent iPad Games to Develop Kids Critical Thinking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

7 Excellent iPad Games to Develop Kids Critical Thinking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | C21 teaching pedagogy | Scoop.it

"There is an app for everything these days. From health apps to travel apps, iTunes market is teeming with all kinds of apps. It only takes one click in a search engine to find what you want but as we always say not every app can do what its developers preach , you need to have a critical eye to evaluate the apps that will work for you. As teachers and educators, we are in a constant search for apps to use with our students and this is why we need to make sure we have recourse to checklists such as this onewhenever we are to recommend apps. Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has even made it way easier for teachers to pick the apps they want from some pre-made lists of apps organized according to each subject area."

food for thought

dakinane's comment, January 24, 2013 2:10 AM
I think not. Not in the current climate anyway. Perhaps the question should be, should students have to attend the physical structure of school all the time? Should students be able to enrol at multiple schools, choosing the courses and tutors that suit them best? Especially at NCEA level.

Donald Clark Plan B: Sugata Mitra: Slum chic? 7 reasons for doubt

Donald Clark Plan B: Sugata Mitra: Slum chic? 7 reasons for doubt | C21 teaching pedagogy | Scoop.it
dakinane's insight:

I read this with interest. Sugata Mitra's philosophy has real resonnance for me in his approach to student centred learning.  I like it when in his TED talk he says "I don't know, and left.."  This for me, created a real problem for students to solve and not one where they knew if they waited long enough the teacher would supply the answer.  So reading Donald's article is a refreshing alternative perspective to Mitra's pedagogy.  I try to create genuine open ended collaborative learning opportunities in the classrooms I work in, what are your thoughts?

6 Expert Tips for Flipping the Classroom

6 Expert Tips for Flipping the Classroom | C21 teaching pedagogy | Scoop.it

"In a flipped classroom, professors assign pre-class homework consisting of brief, recorded lectures and presentations, digital readings with collaborative annotation capabilities, and discussion board participation. This frees up classroom time to promote active learning through collaborative, project-based learning using simple display and sharing tools.... While technology facilitates flipped instruction, it takes both planning and experimentation to perfect the model. CT asked three experienced classroom flippers for their tips and best practices."
