Awesome Interactive Graphic Featuring 21st Century Thinking Skills ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Awesome Interactive Graphic Featuring 21st Century Thinking Skills ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educational Technology - Yeshiva Edition | Scoop.it

Here is a wonderful interactive image created on Thinglink by J Beam featuring some important tools that support the 21st century thinking. As you can see from the graphic below, there are four main skills associated with the 21st century thinking these are : creating, collaborating, communicating, and critical thinking. These are broad umbrella terms that include several other categories . Apart from this clasification of the thinking skills and wether or not you agree with them being labelled as 21st century skills the web tools that are associated with each one of them are really worth trying out. Most of these tools are curated by the popular wiki : wikispacesforshools. I invite you to check them out and share with us what you think of them.

Terence R. Egan's curator insight, January 9, 2014 11:49 PM

 

I surveyed my household and found that my daughter wants to eat candies and play games on her i-pad all day.

 

I surveyed my university students and found that 58% of them want to skip classes and be given an automatic A-grade on all courses. How about those millenials, huh? Aren't they sooooo cute!

 

But I'm more concerned about the Boomers who run these junk polls and then ascribe their deep meaning and faux wisdom to them. Next week will mark the 40th anniversary of the beginning my career. And,  if you'd asked me 40 years ago:

 

"Would you prefer to work wherever you want to?"

Tick the box  >    Hell yeah!

 

"Would you like to work whenever you feel like it."

Tick the box  >    Sign me up!

 

"Would you prefer to choose to work on what interests you?"

Tick the box  >    Ho-ho-ho ... I love you guys.

 

"Would it interest you to travel while you work?"

Tick the box  >    Sing: 'My bags are packed, I'm ready to go.'

 

Just because the kids (your millenials) prefer something, it doesn't mean it's right, or appropriate, or that they should be given it.

 

It's ok to ask them to work, you know ...

as long as you ask them really really nicely, with sugar on top.

 

Wake up Boomers!

 

You are abrogating your responsibilities as managers. It's too easy to say "yes" and then post-rationalise by citing half-baked social research and its self-serving recommendations.

In the "Concept Exploration" phase of the flipped classroom it woud be nice to have a conversational agent to help students. A sort of Virtual Tutor.
