Cheryl Doig's curator insight, February 4, 2013 11:22 AM

In an increasingly complex world we need to change our education system. Frey suggests the use of micro-credits as a method of credentialising. I agree we need to change but I'm not sure that this approach will just create another layer of bureaucracy. This comment will start the debate:

“Who is going to jump first into granting a degree that doesn’t have the seat time requirement that we do today that employers will see as credible? Where does the credibility come from?” – Bill Gates at the World Economic Forum 2013 in Davos, Switzerland

Teacher knowledge for 21st century learning

Teacher knowledge for 21st century learning | Thinking e-strategically | 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!

AlGonzalezinfo's curator insight, August 14, 2013 12:21 PM

This is a fantastic resource.

 

From the article:

 

Burns, the Grand Father of transformation leadership, defines it as a “Process of engaging with others in such a way as to raise leader and follower to higher levels of motivation and morality.” He contrasts this to,

“A false conception of leadership as mere command and control.

 

As leadership comes properly to be seen as a process of leaders engaging and mobilizing human needs and aspirations of followers, women will be more readily recognized as leaders and men will change their own leadership styles.”

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s curator insight, August 14, 2013 6:15 PM

Any leadership style has situational problems that have to be balance or more fluid with application and implementation.
