Are we expected to do it all? It is interesting that Ivan Illich, in Deschooling Society, proposed learning networks. Could he have imagined this type of proposal?

Leslie Minton's curator insight, July 17, 2013 11:49 AM

Great visual of how networks are created to support how best to utilize them in education.

The 7 Powerful Idea Shifts In Learning Today

The 7 Powerful Idea Shifts In Learning Today | Educational Leadership | Scoop.it

1. Digital & Research Literacy

 

Digital literacy is a trend that involves the consumption, comprehension, and curation of digital media. This is directly tied to research literacy, as both digital and digitized data sources serve as primary research resources.

 

2. Shift From Standards To Habits

 

The shift from purely academic standards to critical thinking habits supports personalized, 21st century learning through a preceding shift from institution to learner.

 

3. Game-Based Learning & Gamification

 

Game-Based Learning aggregates the power of learning simulations, social gaming, emotional immersion, and digital literacy to produce a net effect of transparency and participation on the learner.

 

4. Connectivism

 

Through social media, mobile learning, blended learning, eLearning, and other inherently connected learning experiences, it is possible to leverage the potential of interdependence and crowds. This occurs simply through crowdsourced knowledge (e.g., Quora, Wikipedia, learnist), visually through curation (e.g., scoopit, pinterest, MentorMob), and long-term through digital communities (e.g., twitter, Google+, facebook).

 

5. Transparency

 

A natural consequence of digital and social media, transparency is the opposite of closed, traditional schooling, where the walls of the classroom are thick and the local teachers and policies govern, judge, and process everything.

 

6. Place-Based Education 

 

Place-Based Education complements digital platforms that tend towards globalization. While it is tempting for learners to constantly connect with exotic ideas in equally exotic locations, authentic learning experiences allow learners to self-direct personal change in pursuit of social change–and that starts small, at home and surrounding intimate communities.

 

7. Self-Directed Learning & Play

 

Self-Directed Learning is almost certainly at the core of the future of learning. To not allow learners to “play” with information, platforms, and ideas is to ignore the access, tools, and patterns of 21st century life.

This graphic is a little bit different from the visuals I have previously shared with you in Bloom's Taxonomy pagehere in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. Besides featuring the usual thinking skills found in the revised taxonomy, it also provides a classification of learners along this thinking continuum. In this regard we have :
