The Future of Learning Institutions in a Digital Age

"In this report, Cathy Davidson and David Theo Goldberg focus on the potential for shared and interactive learning made possible by the Internet. They argue that the single most important characteristic of the Internet is its capacity for world-wide community and the limitless exchange of ideas. The Internet brings about a way of learning that is not new or revolutionary but is now the norm for today’s graduating high school and college classes. It is for this reason that Davidson and Goldberg call on us to examine potential new models of digital learning and rethink our virtually enabled and enhanced learning institutions."

High school students know that their learning isn't relevant | Education Recoded | Big Think | Teaching & Learning in the Digital Age | Scoop.it

"Do we have the will to integrate digital technologies into students' learning in regular, frequent, and meaningful ways? Are we brave enough to cast a critical eye at the learning tasks that we assign students and ask difficult but necessary questions about their relevance in a technology-suffused, globally-interconnected society? Are we willing to look at what passes for 'learning' and 'teaching' and 'schooling' on a day-to-day basis in this country and acknowledge that the vast majority of it is mind-numbingly boring and disengaging? Can we recognize that we're infantilizing our young adults instead of enabling them to be empowered learners, thinkers, and doers?"

21st Century Pedagogy

21st Century Pedagogy | Teaching & Learning in the Digital Age | Scoop.it

"Even if you have a 21st Century classroom(flexible and adaptable); even if you are a 21st Century teacher ; (an adaptor, a communicator, a leader and a learner, a visionary and a model, a collaborator and risk taker) even if your curriculum reflects the new paradigm and you have the facilities and resources that could enable 21st century learning – you will only be a 21st century teacher if how you teach changes as well. Your pedagogy must also change."

"In case you hadn’t noticed, this whole technology thing has wiggled its way into the fabric of higher education and is altering the cozy landscape. It’s still a foreign concept to many, however, which is why you can’t browse the Internet these days without stumbling across a slew of articles and research that emphasize the value of incorporating technology into the way classes are taught.

We’ve whittled down an expansive list of recently published works that caught our eye and present to you four items that deserve your attention:"
