We are living in revolutionary times. It is urgent that we think of education, children and teaching differently from the past. The classroom needs to be a place of innovation where students are able to connect with others, feel empowered and curious and have a say in their learning. Technology provides us with tools to expand our minds and extend our reach (Sir Ken Robinson, 2014).

5 presentation tools that enable better collaboration | Digital Technology in Education | Scoop.it

With a collaborative presentation, it’s important to edit in real-time in a space that works for everyone. To help with that, we have found...

"Several Studies published recently show similar results; students lose interest in longer lecture videos and become distracted. If lectures are short or broken up by some kind of interaction (such as quizzes), then engagement is far higher."

Teacher knowledge for 21st century learning

Teacher knowledge for 21st century learning | Digital Technology in Education | Scoop.it

This article offers a critical review of the literature on 21st century knowledge frameworks, with a particular focus on what this means for teachers and teacher educators.

 

The authors accomplish this by identifying common themes and knowledge domains in 15 reports, books, and articles that describe the kinds of knowledge that researchers state are integral and important for success in the 21st century.

 

The authors argue that seemingly disparate frameworks converge on three types of knowledge, as necessary for the 21st century: foundational, meta, and humanistic. Although 21st century frameworks are thought to advocate new types of knowledge, little has actually changed in the new century with respect to the overall goals of education.

 

Despite this sense of continuity, significant changes related to how technologies change all three types of knowledge need to be conveyed.

 

The article ends with specific conclusions and recommendations for teacher education.
