Vanessa Camilleri's curator insight, January 7, 2015 4:14 AM

Quite an interesting insight which has made me ponder on some questions. In Malta we are trying to achieve much with a new learning outcomes framework that we are implementing in schools. My worries would be - are we trying to be quite ambitious in that? As a country I feel that we are too preoccupied with curricula, assessment, instructions, and standards and data. How can we hope to achieve a 'real' 21st century education that is focused more on continuous connectivity, communication, and active role taking if we don't focus enough on changing mentalities and our perception of the 'culture of learning'?

"A  directory of tools for verifying, fact checking and assessing the validity of social media and user generated content."  As students become more and more dependent on the internet to provide them resources for learning, this could be a great tool to help them recognize what's legitimate.
