Framework for 21st Century Learning - The Partnership for 21st Century Skills

Framework for 21st Century Learning - The Partnership for 21st Century Skills | LCGS 2013 | Scoop.it

The Framework presents a holistic view of 21st century teaching and learning that combines a discrete focus on 21st century student outcomes (a blending of specific skills, content knowledge, expertise and literacies) with innovative support systems to help students master the multi-dimensional abilities required of them in the 21st century.

Selin Gelinci's curator insight, October 31, 2013 11:40 AM

This is a useful resource as  it explores further into the framework for the 21st century learning. It combines a discrete focus on the outcomes, specific skillsa and content knowledge that should be gained through the learning program. The diagram helps understanding further into the support system and how it all collaborates. This is benefical to me as a future teacher as it gives me a clear understanding of how i can manage my time effectively and make sure i am always covering aspects that are relevant to the 21st century learning.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 9, 2013 8:20 PM

Check out this infographic which focuses on scaffolding for deeper understanding. Mia MacMeekin has provided a nine step process.

1. Ask a question.

2. Present a mystery for students to solve.

3. Ask students to draw what they know.

4. Give students ample time to research the mystery.

5. Ask students to draw the mystery and the solution again.

6. Ask students to share their drawings with other students.

7. Ask students to pull their ideas together in one drawing.

8. Teacher patiently asks what if questions.

9. If students needs more information, send them back to step #4, and start over again until the outcome or objective is reached.

MacMeekin notes that her students were engaged in the drawing/scaffolding phase of this and reached a deeper understanding than other classes had. It is also important to note that the ant is actually an analogy. To learn more click through to the post.

Design briefs. Help or hinderance in a classroom? While they can be a helpful and creative way for students to learn can they become a hinderance if they are not effectively written, clearly stated and directs or poorly designed? 

Ms Rachael's curator insight, May 30, 2013 7:42 PM

I have recently been introduced to the concept of a design brief and I must say i was impressed.  This site captures the effectiveness of using design briefs in the classroom to allow students to 'discover' their learning.

Joanne's curator insight, June 7, 2013 11:11 PM

This resource has been rescooped from my PLN, as I felt this is a vital skill that I need to develop. The lesson plan focuses on developing appropriate design briefs for technology students. The site provides activities that assist the user to determine the appropriateness of task statements for activities, formats for design briefs and various examples of design briefs.

This resource is a valuable tool in assisting tecahers to write effective design briefs that have a clear task statement and evaluation process.

The Draft Technolgies curriculum states that all young Australians should develop a critical appreciation of the processes through which technologies are developed, they will do this by evaluating how their own solutions and those of others affect users, equity, sustainability, ethics, and personal and social values (ACARA, 2013).

As teachers if we provide students with challenging and effectively written design briefs we will be better eqipped to contribute to achieving this goal.

Advent of Google means we must rethink our approach to education

Advent of Google means we must rethink our approach to education | LCGS 2013 | Scoop.it

Teaching in an environment where the internet and discussion are allowed in exams would be different. The ability to find things out quickly and accurately would become the predominant skill. The ability to discriminate between alternatives, then put facts together to solve problems would be critical. AThat's a skill that future employers would admire immensely.

Students and teachers in Europe are keen to "go digital", computer numbers have doubled since 2006 and most schools are now "connected", but use of ICTs (Information and Communication Technologies) and digital skill levels are very uneven. These skills and support for teachers to deliver them need a strong boost, according to a survey on the use of digital technologies in schools in Europe published by the Commission.

Language Means Business

Language Means Business | LCGS 2013 | Scoop.it

 

People say that business is all about relationships, but the truth is that business is really all about communication. Communication is key to virtually every aspect of business—from acquiring and retaining customers to improving employee engagement and performance. At the most fundamental level, business can’t happen without communication. This is even more true in the era of globalization. As geographic borders become porous and the world flattens, effective communication with customers, employees, partners, suppliers, and other stakeholders across the globe becomes essential to successfully running a company.


A simplistic approach to this issue (and one adopted by some less-progressive companies) is to assume that everyone will speak English, including all potential customers and employees. After all, English is the lingua franca of much of the world, and the language you happen to be reading this article in. Yet given the accelerating pace of globalization, and the rising influence of many non-English-speaking countries, the flaws in this thinking start to show.
