Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

This is interesting, but I would argue that in some fashion would have been applied in pre-digital technology times.

Ilkka Olander's curator insight, May 16, 2014 10:10 AM

Each year, CORE Education’s experienced staff of researchers, education trainers, and technology experts pool their knowledge and expertise, and through a thorough process put together and publish CORE’s prognosis on what are the coming ten major trends in eLearning and education generally that will make an impact upon education in New Zealand (and other parts of the world) in the coming year.

Interesting while not attending to the fact that the education is becoming a market place where business principles and ethics will dominate and constrain education.

Neat graphic. Cool insight.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

We are all learners. The cartoon speaks volumes.

Barbara Bray's curator insight, January 5, 2014 10:47 PM

2014 is the year for Personalized Learning to take center stage in national and international discussions. The buzz is out. Yet, the information around personalized learning is still confusing. This new year will be the year that defines the term where we focus on the learner first. 

Like the webcomic? This is from Unearthed Comics (

What personalized learning is and how it can be optimized. Now that learning is available to "the masses", what is preventing "the masses" from taking advantage of learning opportunities?

Don Breedwell's curator insight, March 26, 2014 8:47 PM

I like to see good change and this looks like the right direction. Going to make the changes in vocabulary now.

NEW Skills For A New Age [Infographic]

NEW Skills For A New Age [Infographic] | Educational Leadership and Technology |

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

These are really not new, but they are always worth repeating. What is new is perhaps the intensity and frequency with which they happen. The cross-cultural awareness is certainly the case. What works for me culturally does not work for someone half-way around the world. In fact, it might not work here. Educators  need to be aware of that cross-cultural awareness.

Kaitlyn Kaminski's curator insight, March 18, 2014 9:15 AM

Really great and simple infographic that displays the importance of these skills. These are fundamental for a student's future.

Viljenka Savli ('s curator insight, March 20, 2014 5:15 AM

These are simply the core facts...

Lena Leirdal's curator insight, August 30, 2014 6:36 AM

I love infographics! Learn - create - collaborate!


Right 'up the alley' when addressing 21st century skills. I find particularly the "learn"-part interesting: the need for skills to "access, evaluate and use different forms of information, exihbit fluency with tech tools, and exercise critical thinking". Definately a focus relevant for my master´s thesis.
