9 Fundamental Digital Skills for 21st Century Teachers | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it
' in a digitally focused world, education is getting more and more digitized pushing us, teachers and educators, to re-conceptualize what it really means to be a teacher in the 21st century.
Dennis T OConnor's insight:

Here's a handy check list for online teachers.  Not only do we do all these things, we guide learners into using these tools to learn for themselves.

This info graphic lists many great resources that could influence ICT use in a classroom. Many of these we have explored through ICT Design, however many are new resources. This could be a great starting block for an ICT and student centered unit plan. 

EDIT:
Upon reading this article, I agreed that these skills are necessary for 21st century teachers. I have re-read this article however, and now I see that these skills are just as important for 21st century students. Imagine sending students out into the workforce after school, with all of these skills. This Infographic has provided me with the inspiration for creating a learning sequence within a unit.

Within the drama classroom there is room for most of these skills. Within my unit plan, students have to prepare a performance but in addition to that, they have to market their performance. This will require posters, a promotion video, creating a website for the performance. Working collaboratively to decide what needs to be done, students then work independently on their task (decided within the group). This will give students the opportunity to excel in skills from outside of the drama classroom. 
Jeff At CQU's curator insight, June 17, 10:06 AM

This resource is excellent.  Highly organised, focused and very easy to read.  I think this would be a wonderful resource printed on a poster and displayed in the classroom.

 

Website addresses are given under nine headings that fit so well with the Australian Curriculum General Standards, the pedagogy I have chosen in my pedagogy map, and the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers..

 

Examples of such links are as follows:

 

1. Category on Chart: Create infographics and posters (4 websites listed)

      LINKS TO: 

(a) Australian Curriculum General Standards

    - Literacy - communicate concepts, ideas and detailed proposals

      LINKS TO: 

(b) High end pedagogy

   - Provide students opportunities to communicate ideas and detailed proposals through various self-selected ICT technologies

      LINKS TO: 

(c) Links to Pedagogy

   - Student direction: Students self-select methods to communicate their proposals, reports, drawings and specifications using media channels appropriate to the intended audience. To an extent directing, setting the pace and determining outcomes of learning (problem based learning).

      LINKS TO: 

(d) ICT Connections

   - Students should understand and develop the ability to utilise different presentation software – such as Prezzi and PowerPoint.

 

2. Category on Chart: Create PLNs, connect, discover new content and grow professionally (4 websites listed)

      LINKS TO: 

(a) Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

6.2 Engage in professional learning and improve practice

 

3. Category on Chart: Create, organize adn share digital resources

      LINKS TO: 

(a) Australian Professional Standards for Teachers.

6.3 Engage with colleagues and improve practice

__________________________________________________________

 

In relation to SAMR, this allows for transformation learning in the following ways:

 

1. Modification: many tasks in the classroom can be re-designed with this poster being used to locate safe and appropriate resources on the internet.

 

An example is using a a resource under "Create Digital Portfolios" such as Weebly.com in place of a portfolio in book form.

 

2. Redefinition: new tasks, previously inconceivable are possible, such as displaying a student's portfolio on a mobile device as opposed to book form.

__________________________________________________________

 

 In summary, this is brilliantly designed and I see it as a highly valuable resource for my teaching.

Deeper Learning and 21st Century Skills

Deeper Learning and 21st Century Skills | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Business and political leaders are increasingly asking schools to integrate development of skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, and collaboration into the teaching and learning of academic subjects. Collectively these skills are often referred to as “21st century skills” or “deeper learning.”

Vision Mapper by Futurelab | E-Learning and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Vision Mapper, part of the Beyond Current Horizons programme, is designed to help examine the future of education beyond 2025.

 

What skills will children need for work? How might parenting and family change? What impact will new technologies have on learning? Vision Mapper provides a wide range of activities and resources to explore these issues, centred around 6 expert future scenarios. These scenarios are based on 18 month's work in 2008-9 by a team of 98 experts and are backed by a wealth of background research, providing a powerful planning resource for educators.

 

The resources provided are designed to support education leadership, including head teachers, department heads, local authorities and school redesign consortia to approach long-term planning and decision making with an informed view of the future.

 

Developed in Great Britain.

 

This looks like a great tool. -JL
