A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills

A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

Disconnects between policy mandates/supports and desired practice were found in most of the schools and all of the systems in our sample. For example, teachers were often being asked to innovate while being incented and judged solely by measures of the facts that students had acquired through traditional means, or given ICT to use without related curricular materials and models for ways to use it powerfully and effectively in subject matter learning. It was rare that teachers experienced standards, curriculum, professional development, assessments, and incentives that all aligned to support the development of students’ 21st century skills.

It is not the desired practice which is disconnected, but more an issue of did policy makers actually go into classrooms and have conversations with teachers.

I agree with naysayers that we still need face-to-face interactions. However, if my grandparents had been tweeting during the great depression, I can only imagine how much more connected they would  have felt instead of being isolated raising 4 children on an farm relying on weekly letters to reassure them that the war was ending! The benefits outweigh the negatives!

Teachers learning about and with ICT as collaborative design

Teachers learning about and with ICT as collaborative design | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

The key concept in all these initiatives is collaborative design. Collaboration and design have been increasingly promoted and explored in the years following the emergence of the WWW mostly because of the alignment of network technologies, a growing interest for the socially situated and communal nature of work and learning, and the development of design-based research as a promising approach to foster innovations in education. The notion of “communities of practice” has certainly provided useful conceptual tools to understand teaching as composed of a joint enterprise, a shared repertoire of knowledge and artifacts, and mutual engagement in community activities, roles, and relationships.

Collaborative design is certainly an area that's close to my heart and at the core of the true power of the internet and online learning.

Evelyn Izquierdo's curator insight, June 22, 2013 12:53 PM

Collaboration in a must when using ICT. Based on that purpose, communities of practice become useful spaces to share, learn and grow together professionally. If you are starting in the ICT field, I recommend you to websearch about "well known" or "recognized" communities in your teaching field; as well as creating a Twitter  account, so you can start building your personal learning network (PLN). Follow the leaders in your field, very soon you will be participating in collaborative projects; sharing ideas, resources and materials; or simply enjoying your new discoveries. :)

Framework for 21st Century Learning - The Partnership for 21st Century Skills | Education and Cultural Change | Scoop.it

The Framework presents a holistic view of 21st century teaching and learning that combines a discrete focus on 21st century student outcomes (a blending of specific skills, content knowledge, expertise and literacies) with innovative support systems to help students master the multi-dimensional abilities required of them in the 21st century.

This is an excellent summary of 21st Century learning!

Selin Gelinci's curator insight, October 31, 2013 8:40 AM

This is a useful resource as  it explores further into the framework for the 21st century learning. It combines a discrete focus on the outcomes, specific skillsa and content knowledge that should be gained through the learning program. The diagram helps understanding further into the support system and how it all collaborates. This is benefical to me as a future teacher as it gives me a clear understanding of how i can manage my time effectively and make sure i am always covering aspects that are relevant to the 21st century learning.
