9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning - A Different View

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning - A Different View | pre-service teacher ideas | Scoop.it

What does it mean when you say 21st century learning? This post lists nine characteristics of 21st century learning and provides a rationale. What makes this notable is "the absence of technology. There is very little about iPads, social media, 1:10 laptops, or other tech-implementation. In that way, it is closer to the 'classic' approach to 'good learning' than it is the full-on digital fare we often explore."

The nine characteristics are in the diagram above and listed below:

Learner-centered, Media-driven, Personalized, Tranfer-by-Design, Visibly Relevant, Data-Rich, Adaptable, Interdependent and Diverse.
