"Many have attempted to identify the skills important for a learner today in this era of the 21st century (I know it is an overused phrase).  I have an affinity towards the skills identified by Tony Wagner."

Framework for 21st Century Learning - The Partnership for 21st Century Skills

Framework for 21st Century Learning - The Partnership for 21st Century Skills | Digital Learning and Teaching | 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.

Nik Peachey's curator insight, August 29, 2013 5:34 AM

Touchcast is an app for creating video content which links to various web based and embedded resources and media. It enables the user to create a video commentary which guides the viewer through various websites and study resources and gives a commentary of what these resources contain. At the same time the user can add supporting images to their video to support understanding of what they are saying. Great for creating flipped learning.

Terry Yelmene's curator insight, August 29, 2013 11:47 AM

Knowledge is equal parts contructivism (conceptual) and connectivism (social) and to the degree that communication can be broadened and enhanced to affect both at the same time, knowledge devlopment becomes more enabled. Touchcast is the kind of tech development that could have just such an effect in this arena.  Ya.. this could be... fantastic!

New Media Literacies — Learning in a Participatory Culture

New Media Literacies — Learning in a Participatory Culture | Digital Learning and Teaching | Scoop.it

"The New Media Literacies constitute the core cultural competencies and social skills that young people need in our new media landscape. We call them “literacies,” but they change the focus of literacy from one of individual expression to one of community involvement. They build on the foundation of traditional literacy, research skills, technical skills, and critical analysis skills taught in the classroom. If these New Media Literacies are learned – and they can be learned without computers in the classroom – they can form the building blocks for students’ participation in new media."

Maintenant, c'est l'apprentissage de nouveaux modes de participation, qui exigent en réalité un engagement plus profond, qui est appelé par les nouveaux médias. Être alphabète de la culture numérique suppose que l'on apprenne à être unE lettréE de l'implication dans le débat public.

The curation comment is interesting... I think it's fantastic that students are able to gain these skills without the assistance of a teacher, but ultimately if they veer off the path or have been misguided, they will always need a facilitator to not only show students the tools but also give them some best practice ideas.

Anne Whaits's curator insight, August 28, 2013 8:52 AM

According to author, Saurabh Tyagi, the Framework for the Rational Analysis of Mobile Education (FRAME) model is used to describe the mobile learning process from three aspects:  Device, Learner and Social. It is the  interaction of Device, Learner and Social that attempts to define mobile learning, which itself is an ever-evolving process.Mobile capability can enhance learning by facilitating interaction and collaboration, creation of a learning community and providing access to a variety of online resources in real time.

Viljenka Savli's curator insight, September 9, 2013 3:20 AM

The main idea is: "To summarize it all, mobile capability helps in learning by facilitating interaction and collaboration, creation of a learning community and providing access to a variety of online resources in real time."
