21st Century Technology Skills Are a Core Competency for Today’s Graduates | Education and Technology for Libraries | Scoop.it

Our students need to be comfortable with the information technologies that are inextricably linked to the 21st century skills the work place requires, and teachers need to help pave the way.

VISUAL LITERACY

Demonstrate the ability to interpret, recognize, appreciate, and understand information presented through visible actions, objects and symbols, natural or man-made

 

Peter Evans's curator insight, November 26, 2013 8:47 AM

I'd suggest a lot of the more innovative university programmes are already doing much of what is suggested here. One thing to emphasise is supporting students to use digital tools specifically for learning as they generally already know how to use these tools. In otherwords, while students may often be digitally competent, they are often less digitally literate in terms of learning processes. Also, what refer to PDAs - surely old tech?

Miep Carstensen's curator insight, December 1, 2013 11:14 PM

Sound advice for teachers to incorprate these core competencies in their teaching programmes.

Why innovation has to be just as destructive as it is productive

Why innovation has to be just as destructive as it is productive | Education and Technology for Libraries | Scoop.it

"Innovation must both create and destroy value, says Jeff DeGraff, a world-renowned thought leader and executive and innovation expert. He points out that most traditional wisdom and religions have figures who create the world and figures who destroy it, and that Pablo Picasso even called himself the “great destroyer” even though he was responsible for many art movements in the 20th century. 'The challenge is, until you make room for something new, there will be no opportunity to do something,' DeGraff says."

Brain Research: Adolescents Learn More in Cooperative Groups | MiddleWeb

Brain Research: Adolescents Learn More in Cooperative Groups | MiddleWeb | Education and Technology for Libraries | Scoop.it
Judy Willis, a neurologist & middle grades teacher, says adolescent brains learn more through interactive, interdependent group work.

Did you know that "peer group influence plays an important developmental role in the psychosocial process of separation from parents"? What does this mean to teachers of middle school students? That "interactive, interdependent group work" helps middle school students "build happy, learning brains."

This post will help you learn more about brain science, successful group work, how to plan for success, provides some researched-based guidelines and more.

Devon Clarke's curator insight, October 22, 4:44 PM

When it comes to adolescents brain development in our western society today we can rely on school systems to play a large role in this. In this article is talks about how cooperative work groups in middle schools are the best ways for children to learn (Willis, 2012). I found this article to relate very closely to an academic journal I read comparing social development in pre schoolers in a values education program (Dereli-Iman, E, 2014, p.263). In the experiment of the academic journal researches found that children put into the values education program had better social development and less behavioural issues  (Dereli-Iman, E, 2014, p.263).  Even though this article of cooperative groups deals with middle schools students, it proves to say that cooperative learning groups gets all children involved, and forms for the greatest  levels of conceptual learning  (Dereli-Iman, E, 2014, p.263). In the text book Exploring Psychology in Modules, they state that day care is an area that has a huge impact on a child's development (Myers & Myers, 2008, p. 148). As Whetten stated, good quality child care is a warm and stimulations place for children, and poor child care is boring for this children making them unresponsive (Myers & Myers, 2008, p. 149). From these three articles you can see that schooling for children plays a huge role in brain development, and it is important to make sure they are in a good environment. Thought the author of this article, Judy Willis did not use a lot of scientific reasoning and proof in her article I found her findings and background to be very impressive. It would have made the article a little bit better if she would have added in some statistics to back up her reasoning about cooperative groups (Willis, 2012). A possible diverse group that would be effected through cooperative learning are kids from other countries who do not speak the foreign language. If a child was put into a cooperative group and was not able to converse with the other children it could possibly lead to negative outcomes for that student.
