The Other 21st Century Skills

The Other 21st Century Skills | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Many have attempted to identify the skills important for a learner today in this era of the 21st century (I know it is an overused phrase).  I have an affinity towards the skills identified by Tony Wagner."

Anne Whaits's insight:

@jackiegerstein adds another 6 soft skills/attributes to those of Tony Wagner and beautifully presents all of these in this image. Sometimes we get get so wrapped up in the development of digital skills/fluencies that we can so easily lose sight of the human attributes and soft skills that best serve life-long learners in today's changing context of learning. Thanks for this grounding Jackie!

The curation comment is interesting... I think it's fantastic that students are able to gain these skills without the assistance of a teacher, but ultimately if they veer off the path or have been misguided, they will always need a facilitator to not only show students the tools but also give them some best practice ideas.

At The Padagogy Wheel Core: Immersive Learning Targets Engagement | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The new version of the Padagogy Wheel tackles a major question that is lurking in the back of everyone’s mind. If it’s not … it should be. It’s about the problem of motivation in education. How do we motivate students, teachers, parents, and everyone else to get excited about learning? How do you stay motivated? What works and what doesn’t?”

Confused About Ed Tech Tools? New Rating Site for Apps and Games

Confused About Ed Tech Tools? New Rating Site for Apps and Games | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"To evaluate the bonanza of apps, games, and websites that claim to have educational value, Common Sense Media, a non-profit organization best known for rating commercial media for age-level appropriateness, has developed a new rating system called Graphite. The site provides ratings of products in three categories: pedagogy, engagement, and support. Pedagogy is the highest weighted category, and is based on the depth and quality of content and how well it’s integrated into the mechanics of the reviewed game or website. The highest rated games require players to think critically about how to progress, and help build skills that are transferable. The engagement category measures how well the game grabs and keeps players’ attention, and the support category refers to the quality of tools the product offers to help learners when they get stuck. Support also includes tools for parents or teachers so they can help a learner and gets higher marks if it offers content in a variety of ways, catering to different types of learners. Some examples might be clear tutorials or content offered with both visuals and text. "

DNA of a 21st Century Educator Simplified!

During your lifetime you have probably experienced inspirational educators, or witnessed inspiring lectures. But, what about you? Are you such an educator? If not, why not? In this talk, I [Zaid Alsagoff] explored some of the ingredients top educators in the 21st century have, and how we can learn from them to reinvent ourselves to reach our true potential as an educator. This talk was given on the 9 February (2013) at Jazan University (Saudi Arabia).

Anne Whaits's insight:

@zaidlearn reaffirms the need to learn, unlearn and relearn. A great summary of today's innovative educator who learns to design, empower, assess, reflect on and transform student learning. Slides rich in useful resources and links to more.

I am taking this a bit further. How do you programme someone to become a potential 21st Century Educator?  Start from the home by educating pre-schoolers. The Piagetian and Montessori idea of presenting children with a variety of educational toys and games suitable for their age and helping them to assimilate new learning is basically simple.  This is just the beginning..........

Flipping and Expanding Bloom's Taxonomy

Flipping and Expanding Bloom's Taxonomy | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"In 1956, educational psychologist Benjamin Bloom and a group of other researchers created one of the enduring models of how learning should be structured and supported ......There is a definite place for a  flipping of Bloom’s Taxonomy in the world of education. Our understanding of  how people learn has changed and there is a premium on creativity that needs to  be encouraged. The traditional model is outdated and fails to account for some  of the realities of the 21st century. Adding a social constructivist  slant to Wright’s model helps to ensure that it won’t be outdated before it  even gains widespread acceptance." - Dr Justin Marquis

The Padagogy Wheel ... it's a Bloomin' Better Way to Teach

The Padagogy  Wheel ... it's a Bloomin' Better Way to Teach | Interactive Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

" Dr Ian Green from the School of Education here at Adelaide and I [Allan Carrington] have used Padagogy 101 (introduction to iPad in HE) and Padagogy 201 (more advanced use for L&T) to train over 600 faculty from universities in Australia. During my research I saw lots of great work done by others using Bloom’s Taxonomy including the Revised Taxonomy which has now become the Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy. However when I discovered the excellent pioneer work done by Kathy Schrock with “Bloomin’ Apps” I got the idea for the Padagogy Wheel. Dare I say it but it is the next version for mobile learning of the ongoing importance of Bloom’s Taxonomy. Bloom’s is still fundamental to good teaching and learning."

Anne Whaits's insight:

Allan Carrington (University of Adelaide, Australia) devised the Padagogy Wheel to support his work in training and developing faculty to use the iPad in higher education learning and teaching. I particularly like the non-linear presentation of thinking skills in this wheel. Do explore Allan's blog for other great resources including PADAGOGY 101, PADAGOGY 201 and more.
