Teacher knowledge for 21st century learning

Teacher knowledge for 21st century learning | teaching ideas | Scoop.it

This article offers a critical review of the literature on 21st century knowledge frameworks, with a particular focus on what this means for teachers and teacher educators.

 

The authors accomplish this by identifying common themes and knowledge domains in 15 reports, books, and articles that describe the kinds of knowledge that researchers state are integral and important for success in the 21st century.

 

The authors argue that seemingly disparate frameworks converge on three types of knowledge, as necessary for the 21st century: foundational, meta, and humanistic. Although 21st century frameworks are thought to advocate new types of knowledge, little has actually changed in the new century with respect to the overall goals of education.

 

Despite this sense of continuity, significant changes related to how technologies change all three types of knowledge need to be conveyed.

 

The article ends with specific conclusions and recommendations for teacher education.

This is a really important article - especially in its discussion around the importance of knowledge - an in seeing digital literacy as foundational knowledge.  I have found this article very useful!

Education has always been a trans-disciplinary process that we have treated as a monolith and still do.

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching

Using Bloom's Taxonomy In The 21st Century: 4 Strategies For Teaching

 

Bloom’s Taxonomy can be a powerful tool to transform teaching and learning.

 

By design, it focuses attention away from content and instruction, and instead emphasizes the “cognitive events” in the mind of a child. And this is no small change.

 

For decades, education reform has been focused on curriculum, assessment, instruction, and more recently standards, and data, with these efforts only bleeding over into how students think briefly, and by chance.

 

This means that the focus of finite teacher and school resources are not on promoting thinking and understanding, but rather what kinds of things students are going to be thinking about and how they’ll prove they understand them.
