Digital Intelligence & 21st Century Skills

Digital Intelligence & 21st Century Skills | IT's EDITED | Scoop.it

The World Economic Forum (WEF) has set out what it considers are the key elements for Digital Intelligence in 2016 and encourages education systems to embrace them if we are to have a global workforce for the future and our children effective digital citizens. The report highlights that our children view technology differently, they expect to be connected and they turn to mobile and tablet devices for entertainment. Whilst many adults haven’t embraced such technologies and struggle to adapt, my two year old learnt the phrase “Daddy where’s your ipad?” very early on and is very adept at finding Peppa Pig for his Entertainment.

The WEF model has 8 key themes which as educators we’ll already be familiar with through Internet Acceptable Use policies etc. The two I’m most interested in in this blog are:

We Tracked Down A Fake-News Creator In The Suburbs. Here's What We Learned | Laura Sydell | WBUR.org | IT's EDITED | Scoop.it

A lot of fake and misleading news stories were shared across social media during the election. One that got a lot of traffic had this headline: "FBI Agent Suspected In Hillary Email Leaks Found Dead In Apparent Murder-Suicide." The story is completely false, but it was shared on Facebook over half a million times.

We wondered who was behind that story and why it was written. It appeared on a site that had the look and feel of a local newspaper. Denverguardian.com even had the local weather. But it had only one news story — the fake one.

We tried to look up who owned it and hit a wall. The site was registered anonymously. So we brought in some professional help.

By day, John Jansen is head of engineering at Master-McNeil Inc., a tech company in Berkeley, Calif. In the interest of real news he helped us track down the owner of Denverguardian.com.

Connectivism: Emerging perspectives on learning, teaching and technology

Connectivism: Emerging perspectives on learning, teaching and technology | IT's EDITED | Scoop.it
Just like anything else that involves human experience or interaction, the act of learning does not happen in a vacuum. It is at the intersection of prior knowledge, experience, perception, reality, comprehension, and flexibility that learning occurs. In years past, the traditional learning paradigms of behaviorism, cognitivism, and constructivism have been the benchmarks against which the learning process has been measured. What happens, though, when you throw into the mix all the technological advancements that have come about over the last 40-50 years? These theories certainly do not become obsolete by any means, but they do need to be used in a very different way to be able to incorporate the attributes of a 21st century learning environment. In today’s technology-rich society, it has become increasingly important to learn how to learn. Vail put it simply by declaring that learning must be a way of being (1996).
