10 Incredibly Powerful Teaching Tools of the Future

10 Incredibly Powerful Teaching Tools of the Future | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Utopian visions of learning are tempting, if for no other reason than they absolve us of accountability to create it right now, leading to nebulous romanticizing about how powerful learning could be if we just did more of X and Y.

UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Learning is fun: Play to learn with game-based learning

UNESCO Office in Bangkok: Learning is fun: Play to learn with game-based learning | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Today’s students are different from the past. They are living in the digital world where technology is easily accessible. Working with information in the digital world is an essential skill, and computer-based learning has become more important than ever. For the contemporary student, learning does not always mean a formal situation in which acquiring knowledge from teachers directly is the only approach available, and learning approaches that worked well with students in the past do not necessarily work as well with the “digital native” students of today.

The educational environment is changing from traditional classroom teaching ecology from the adaptive individual/collaborative learning one by development of Internet, mobile and wireless technology. Therefore, we need to develop the new pedagogy in consideration of such new technologies. Especially, our knowledge and wisdom are cultivated by interactive learning/problem solving/building something through collaborative activities. In this paper, we would like to examine the meanings/ecology of "collaborative learning" again and explore the new technologies of communications which evokes and enhances it. Also, we aim to understand and share the concept of computer/Internet supported collaborative learning, and then we explore the technologies of collaborative tools and infrastructure to promote collaborative learning in consideration of the image of new e-pedagogy for collaborative learning. Teachers are now being told that e-Learning is way of the future. On the other hand, a lot of Universities offer a number of lessons using e-learning, m-learning and VLE’s (Virtual Learning Environments). Great teaching transforms pedagogy and subject matter into the joy of learning. Great teaching is transformational, encouraging and enabling students to become more than they are, by discovering who they might be. Research is beginning to suggest that computer games can help to stimulate a successful learning environment and provide motivational learning contexts that suit many learners. They also provide an opportunity to develop communities in which learners have a sense of ownership over what they do. Since, the invasion of digital technologies in classrooms three decades ago, many education providers has been streamlining their education philosophies. Further as new technologies allow for democracy in education for all, Information Communication technologies (ICTs) have become the enabler to ensure access to education. They encourage self-reliance and self-determination in terms of a learner’s ability to make progress within a demanding but incrementally staged environment, and help them to appreciate that the skills necessary for success in games such as problem solving and critical thinking can have relevance in other curricular areas and other social contexts such as study or work. They also create an implicit and explicit understanding that as a learner on our own we can be good but as a learner in a connected team we can be much better. As with rapid growth of the computer technology, E-learning systems usually require many hardware and software resources. The basic concept for designing the system is developing the learning games network using digital materials and Web 2 facilities, which is applied to the cloud learning platform to attract the immigrant residents and assist them to achieve digital literacy across the curriculum.
