"If you look at the programme of study, one of the big problems is the fact that you’ve got these bullet points, which are nearly all about computer science. If you do it by number of bullet points you would think that three quarters of the curriculum is computer science, and as far as I’m aware that is not what’s intended." KS3 ICT teacher

6 Channels Of 21st Century Learning | TeachThought

6 Channels Of 21st Century Learning | TeachThought | Education and technology | Scoop.it
What is 21st century learning, and how do networks and technology function within it?

 

In pursuit, the theme of “21st century learning” often surfaces, a popular label that, while perhaps cliche, still seems to be necessary as we iterate learning models, fold in digital media resources, and incorporate constantly changing technology to an already chaotic event (i.e., learning).

 

This has produced our 9 Characteristics of 21st Century Learning, a kind of overview we created in 2009, and our Inside-Out School model that is meant to be a kind of bridge between current school design and what’s possible moving forward.

A great look into new channels of learning that need to be addressed and accommodated for in the modern classroom, involving concepts such as media literacy, autonomy and creative thinking. This post on TeachThought is a great example of teachers thinking about how to best evolve their teaching practices to suit their students' needs.

6 Channels Of 21st Century Learning

1. Dialogic Response: Learning is a conversation–whether personal, local, and direct.

2. Community Interaction

3. Abstraction & Creativity: Creativity isn’t just art and whimsy.

4. Media Literacy: Digital media evolves constantly.

5. Play: This is the opposite of compliant response to teacher-centered environments.

6. Self-Directed Learning: broadly can include academic response, project-based learning, game-based learning, and  other learning forms

Brad Merrick's curator insight, March 25, 2014 7:14 AM

Places emphasis on the need to encourage thinking and play as we learn, trusting the individual and encouraging their creativity.

What Does Learning Look Like? A Look At Physical And Digital Spaces - Edudemic | Education and technology | Scoop.it
What does learning look like? Is it a classroom? Is there a teacher? Are students working by themselves or collaborating with others? Are they listening or constructing? Can all of these answers be correct?
