[Infographic] 9 fundamental Digital Skills for 21st Century Teachers

[Infographic] 9 fundamental Digital Skills for 21st Century Teachers | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
As we have pointed elsewhere, ' in a digitally focused world, education is getting more and more digitized pushing us, teachers and educators, to re-conceptualize what it really means to be a teacher in the 21st century. Whether you are a technological determinist or a digital instrumentalist, technology has become an essential force shaping much of our teaching and pedagogy. It has also placed a number of demands and exigencies on us and to meet these exigencies we need to develop a set of key digital skills '. The visual below, based on a chart we shared in the past, features what we believe are some of the fundamental digital skills every 21st century teacher should possess. We invite you to check it out and share with us your feedback in our Facebook page. Feel free to download, print, or share the visual the way you want provided you credit our blog as the source.

This is another thought-provoking article from our friends at TeachThought. Having just talked about the importance of using essential questions for self-assessment, this article really spoke to where my focus is these days. How many of us actually have a fully fleshed-out digital literacy plan? If you don't, these are some fantastic questions to start with. If you do, these are great questions to apply to your program to make sure you're on the right path and using the right tools to help you on your way. This one is worth printing and keeping - better yet, share it with your content teachers and  your administrators to start a conversation!

"Pixar in a Box is designed to help students answer an age old question: "why do I need to learn this stuff?" Our answer to this question is a series of interactive lessons, each of which demonstrate how a concept introduced in school is used for creative benefit at Pixar.


"Although our lessons are designed and optimized for the individual learner, we are passionate about finding ways to plug Pixar in a Box into the home and classroom environment."

25 Mini-Films for Exploring Race, Bias and Identity With Students :: NY Times

25 Mini-Films for Exploring Race, Bias and Identity With Students :: NY Times | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

"How do we get students to consider perspectives different from their own? How do we get them to challenge their own biases and prejudices? If, as Atticus Finch famously said, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view … until you climb into his skin and walk around in it,” how do we get our students to do that?

"Teachers traditionally turn to literature, history and current events to open up these conversations, but it’s always helpful to have a bigger toolbox to tackle such important and difficult issues. That’s why we pulled together these 25 short New York Times documentaries that range in time from 1 to 7 minutes and tackle issues of race, bias and identity.

"To help teachers make the most of these films, we also provide several teaching ideas, related readings and student activities.

"In the comments, we hope you’ll share how you use these films in your own classroom."

6th Grade Speed Dating Genres

6th Grade Speed Dating Genres | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

We're speed dating this week. Several 6th grade teachers want their students to explore different fiction genres. I decided to make some personal ads (pictured above) for different genres or subgenres. I already had resources lists in Destiny for these genres, so it made it easy. We have eleven tables, which we'll load with books and an ad. Students will have to rotate through at least 4 tables. They'll be discussing genres in class, but I made an exit ticket so I can track which are the most popular (I still have one more book order to place.) If you're interested, here's a link to the ads, and a link to the exit ticket. The ads document has the titles listed separately at the end, to make it easier for my aides to cut them out! :)

This interesting article explains how many companies are using the affordances provided by Meerkat and Periscope on social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Snapchat, and Instagram in order to win customer attention. The techniques themselves are interesting and creative educators will surely find ways to harness this delivery system in service to their students.

The Big List of Class Discussion Strategies :: Jennifer Gonzalez

The Big List of Class Discussion Strategies :: Jennifer Gonzalez | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
So here they are: 15 formats for structuring a class discussion to make it more engaging, more organized, more equitable, and more academically challenging. If you’ve struggled to find effective ways to develop students’ speaking and listening skills, this is your lucky day.

I’ve separated the strategies into three groups. The first batch contains the higher-prep strategies, formats that require teachers to do some planning or gathering of materials ahead of time. Next come the low-prep strategies, which can be used on the fly when you have a few extra minutes or just want your students to get more active. Note that these are not strict categories; it’s certainly possible to simplify or add more meat to any of these structures and still make them work. The last group is the ongoing strategies. These are smaller techniques that can be integrated with other instructional strategies and don’t really stand alone. For each strategy, you’ll find a list of other names it sometimes goes by, a description of its basic structure, and an explanation of variations that exist, if any. To watch each strategy in action, click on its name and a new window will open with a video that demonstrates it.
