Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet?

Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet? | Education | Scoop.it

This interesting table, comparing 20th and 21st Century learning, was conceived by William Rankin, a well credentialed doctor of Education from ACU, Texas.

 

This graphic, which I found on Educational Technology and Mobile Learning, was originally published on iThinkEd in 2007, where you can read Rankin’s full thoughts that led to his creation of this table.

 

What’s fascinating for me is the fact this was written 7 years ago. It doesn’t date the message. It challenges us as educators to reflect on how far we have actually progressed.

 

I started hearing the talk about 21st Century Learning back in the 90s and here we are in 2013 and, looking at this chart from Rankin, we have to ask ourselves; for all the talk and planning, have we really moved out of the 20th Century and embraced what this nebulous concept of 21st Century is really about?

I do agree with Katie that is it scary that education as we know it is going to start changing. It is really scary to think that the American people don't like change but it is happening all the time with education. There are pros about this education change and there are cons. Let's take the cons and turn them into pros.

What is Education 3.0

Education 3.0

This article has multiple issues. Please help improve it or discuss these issues on the talk page . Education 3.0 describes a level of transformative capabilities and practices for education in the 21st century. The work of Prof. James G.

Education 3.0 is a term that has been used to describe a level of transformative capabilities and practices for education in the 21st century.

 

Professor Derek Keats, of the University of Witwatersrand in Johannesburg, South Africa,[1] and his co-author Jan Philipp Schmidt, FreeCourseWare Manager at University of the Western Cape, South Africa, used the term in 2007 to apply to the use and impact on education of collaborative and personalized learning, reusable learning content, and recognition of prior learning (RPL) whether by formal or informal means.

 

Keats' explorations were focused on higher education.[2] Dr. John Moravec at the University of Minnesota broadens this view, and describes Education 3.0 as a product necessary to support what he labels "Society 3.0" - a near future paradigm of social co-constructivism, ambient technology, and propelled by continuous innovation at all levels of society.[3]
