A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills | Learning Tech, 121, TEL | Scoop.it

Disconnects between policy mandates/supports and desired practice were found in most of the schools and all of the systems in our sample. For example, teachers were often being asked to innovate while being incented and judged solely by measures of the facts that students had acquired through traditional means, or given ICT to use without related curricular materials and models for ways to use it powerfully and effectively in subject matter learning. It was rare that teachers experienced standards, curriculum, professional development, assessments, and incentives that all aligned to support the development of students’ 21st century skills.

It is not the desired practice which is disconnected, but more an issue of did policy makers actually go into classrooms and have conversations with teachers.

Beyond the Classroom: A New Digital Education for Young Australians in the 21 st Century

The new digital education environment will look and function very differently. In addition to classroom teaching, staff will develop new ways of teaching that embrace digital education, and ‘bring your own device’ learning models will be integrated into the learning environment. Strong leadership in schools will be needed to support this new environment, to increase teacher capacity and to support the uptake of digital education in schools.

another uuseful research about iPads in the classroom. Gives an insight of erent experience,

I specially liked the words:

“No technology has an impact on learning in its own right; rather, its impact depends on how it is used… The question that should be asked is not ‘Can iPads support learning?’ but rather ‘How can iPads be used to support collaborative learning, or exploratory learning’, or whatever…”

Niin kiintoisa juttu Googlen ja Applen kamppailusta koulumaailmassa, ettei sitä voi jättää skuuppaamatta, vaikka onkin englanniksi. Näyttää siltä, että vähitellen Android,  maailmassa nopeimmin kasvavan avoimen lähdekoodin ekosysteemin tukemana, on saavuttamassa Applea isomman jalansijan kouluissa. Google, jota kaikkien Android -laitteiden menestyminen hyödyttää, on työntämässä jalkaansa jokaisen luokan ovenrakoon.
Millainenhan myllerrys kustannusrintamalla on tapahtumassa, kun WSOY ja Otava ovatkin yhtäkkiä kilpailutilanteessa, joissa niiden tuotteiden on pärjättävä digitaalisessa oppimisessa?

I have iPads in the Classroom! Now What? | Learning Tech, 121, TEL | Scoop.it

"It sounds so cool to say “We have/use iPad in our school/classroom”.  Parents, community members and stakeholders might equal hearing such a statement with the assurance that the teacher/school is on the cutting edge of technology and their students are being prepared for a new world.  iPads (just as Smartboards used to) are a visual, easily counted and recognizable icon for such assurance.  Many schools around the globe are jumping on that proverbial “iPad bandwagon”

iPads are being handed out to faculty.a small number of devices or a class iPad cart is made available for classrooms to checkout.students might be asked to bring, lease or use school owned devices to create a 1:1 environment

You might be one of the teachers who is excited about the possibilities or apprehensive and fearful of the seemingly overwhelming task in front of you how to manage your classroom, students and the devices AND at the same time use them to improve student learning.

You might be thinking…
