Why Digital Learning is Reshaping Education

Why Digital Learning is Reshaping Education | Technology for Language Teaching | Scoop.it

The ways in which students learn are changing rapidly thanks to technology, and both students and teachers will benefit from it. There are several specific changes that we can expect to see as digital learning takes over education. For one, the way teachers present information and how students work with that information has changed. Students are asked to be more hands-on and collaborative than ever before. There are also new skills that students must learn, such as digital literacy.

Devenir compétent en matière numérique : un devoir pour le citoyen du 21e siècle

Devenir compétent en matière numérique : un devoir pour le citoyen du 21e siècle | Technology for Language Teaching | Scoop.it
Le travail, l’employabilité, l’enseignement, les loisirs, l’intégration et la participation dans la société… Tous ces sujets et d’autres domaines de notre société sont de plus en plus « numérisés », c’est-à-dire que les informations et les services sont de plus en plus accessibles via l’internet.

 

Par conséquent, la compétence numérique est essentielle pour pouvoir participer dans la société et l’économie d’aujourd’hui. Étant une compétence transversale, la compétence numérique aide également à maîtriser d’autres compétences clés, telles que la communication, les langues ou des compétences de base en mathématiques et en sciences.


Être compétent en matière numérique dans le monde d’aujourd’hui exige non seulement un accès et une utilisation des TIC, mais aussi une connaissance appropriée, des compétences et des attitudes envers elles.

 

Selon une enquête de 2014 sur l’insertion et les compétences numériques dans l’UE, jusqu'à 47 % de la population européenne n’a pas suffisamment de compétences numériques, dont 23 % qui n’en a pas du tout.

Twitter for Learning: The Past, Present and Future

Twitter for Learning: The Past, Present and Future | Technology for Language Teaching | Scoop.it
And since then, plenty more forward-thinking learning professionals have recognised the value of Twitter for their own professional learning – with Twitter rising to the top of the Top 100 Tools for Learning in 2008 and staying in that position for the last 6 years.

Now, of course Twitter has become mainstream, brands and celebrities have their own Twitter accounts to promote themselves, there are live chats every day on all kinds of topics  – with even TV programmes holding their own live chats. But just like with any society, it has unfortunately meant a darker side of Twitter has emerged too.

Nevertheless, Twitter is still the most important place for me to find out what is going on in the world, but I can understand how newcomers today might be daunted at the prospective of joining up. Most of the press would have them believe it’s just a place for finding out what their colleagues had for breakfast, or what their favourite celebrity is wearing today, but it has does have clear professional value too.

Tout à fait d'accord, Twitter est aujourd'hui l'outil numéro 1 pour l’apprentissage. Il faut le combiner avec Flipboard pour facilement lire l'info contenue dans les liens qui sont tweeté.

The changing skill set of the learning professional

The changing skill set of the learning professional | Technology for Language Teaching | Scoop.it
‘What we are’ is constantly changing as we continue to develop our existing skills and take on new challenges to respond to a changing world around us. Learning professionals are no different. Perhaps more than ever before, we need new skills to respond to the developing expectations of both employees and our key stakeholders, and to take advantage of the fantastic opportunities afforded by technology.

V Renée:  "No one knows storytelling quite like Pixar.  Their films are entertaining on so many levels; they make us laugh, make us cry, and even make us want to become better filmmakers. But perhaps the greatest quality of a Pixar movie is its ability to move an audience, which is a direct result of the brain trust's aptitude for great storytelling."

The Future of Learning — Learning {Re}imagined | #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU 

The Future of Learning - Learning {Re}imagined - Medium
It’s as if we agreed that the purpose of education was simply content distribution and testing, and therefore we don’t really need skilled teachers. We could actually offload that to technology.


In my opinion, that’s wrong. I think there’s much more to teaching and learning than that and I think we should allow much more freedom in the say that technology is used in the classroom and we should be able to use technology to amplify our ability to learn and our ability to teach rather than effectively imprison us.

 

For example, in testing, in examinations, in 2016 why are students not allowed to take their computer connected to the internet into the examination room? Why are they not allowed to share their answers with their colleagues? Why are they not allowed to phone their mother or phone a subject specialist? Why do we suddenly pretend that the twenty-first century never happened when a child enters an examination room?
