Love this great post from the folks at Always Prepared entitled: ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teachers Who Use Technology‘ and the infographic it inspired from Mark Bates. Both highlight “The Habitudes” of educators who are effectively using technology to enhance and impact teaching and learning. Hat tip to Shawn McCusker for this awesome Twitter find!
...“I thought I had made a sound business case for investing more in informal learning, but few organizations changed their ways. They continued to put almost all of the training budget into schooling novices. They acted as if the natural way of informal learning didn’t exist. Or was someone else’s responsibility. They squandered the opportunity to increase their effectiveness by becoming networked learning organizations.”...Jay Cross
En la sociedad del conocimiento que vivimos, o a la que aspiramos, asistimos a un fuerte debate sobre las nuevas metodologías de enseñanza y aprendizaje, y las nuevas competencias que deberían desarrollar los jóvenes en su periodo formativo y a lo largo de toda la vida, tanto en la educación formal como en el aprendizaje informal que está favoreciendo las TIC. El pensamiento crítico es una de las competencias transversales que aparecen en todas las aportaciones sobre este tema.
