Ross M. Adcock's insight:

A review of a new move by a "blog" style website named Pinterest, moving towards making their technology more accessible for educational purposes. Pinterest functions very much like scoop.it as a curation focused sharing system, however, the posts are purely visual with some captions. An interesting observation of online media being used and purposed for educational purposes.

Ross M. Adcock's insight:

By addressing the possible utility of mobile phones in schools, this is an interesting concept. Mobile phones were traditionally seen purely as distractions in a traditional school context, but perhaps it is time for us to consider if they are useful for teaching and learning as well.

6 Channels Of 21st Century Learning | TeachThought

6 Channels Of 21st Century Learning | TeachThought | EDMT6008 | Scoop.it
What is 21st century learning, and how do networks and technology function within it?

 

In pursuit, the theme of “21st century learning” often surfaces, a popular label that, while perhaps cliche, still seems to be necessary as we iterate learning models, fold in digital media resources, and incorporate constantly changing technology to an already chaotic event (i.e., learning).

 

This has produced our 9 Characteristics of 21st Century Learning, a kind of overview we created in 2009, and our Inside-Out School model that is meant to be a kind of bridge between current school design and what’s possible moving forward.

Ross M. Adcock's insight:

A great look into new channels of learning that need to be addressed and accommodated for in the modern classroom, involving concepts such as media literacy, autonomy and creative thinking. This post on TeachThought is a great example of teachers thinking about how to best evolve their teaching practices to suit their students' needs.

Including play in education is important.

Kirsten Macaulay's curator insight, March 25, 2014 4:48 AM

6 Channels Of 21st Century Learning

1. Dialogic Response: Learning is a conversation–whether personal, local, and direct.

2. Community Interaction

3. Abstraction & Creativity: Creativity isn’t just art and whimsy.

4. Media Literacy: Digital media evolves constantly.

5. Play: This is the opposite of compliant response to teacher-centered environments.

6. Self-Directed Learning: broadly can include academic response, project-based learning, game-based learning, and  other learning forms

Brad Merrick's curator insight, March 25, 2014 7:14 AM

Places emphasis on the need to encourage thinking and play as we learn, trusting the individual and encouraging their creativity.

Ross M. Adcock's insight:

A controversial topic in the media lately, competitive gaming as a sport, this provides a good amount of insight into the growing industry and the related implications. From athlete visas and scholarships for "teams", it may be something to consider when students in schools (particularly high-school) express an avid interest in gaming. (Not entirely realistic, but still something to consider)
