Anatomy of Successful 21st Century Student ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Anatomy of Successful 21st Century Student ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | elearning... is making do, doing enough? | Scoop.it

Often times when we hear the phrase “21st century” prefixed to the noun student our thinking goes straight to technology and digital media.

20 - 21 OCTOBER, 2016 | HILTON, SYDNEY

Universities are facing major disruption. Technology and availability of material are constantly changing, forcing teaching and learning to do the same.

Traditional tertiary structures need to adapt, become flexible, and innovate if they are to survive.

Critical to this shift is the niche focuses Learning Innovation Week will cover, for each has a crucial role in propelling teaching and learning forward, developing strategy, encouraging innovation and changing the game when it comes to education.

Libraries will continue to be a part of a Modern Learning Environment - but like traditional classrooms, they will be very different - and the way we use them and incorporate them into our Modern Learning Practice will be different. Note in this article the similar conceptual thinking applied to libraries as to modern learning spaces.

Rogers classified people into 5 categories based on their propensity to adopt a specific innovation. These are: Innovators, early adopters, early majority, late majority, and laggards.

Similarly, the Pencil Metaphor draws on how people respond to technology to classify them into six categories:

Read this and identify what teaching and learning model you follow.  Is your model best in all learning situations?  Try a different model for one of your next lessons.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, December 3, 2014 11:07 AM
