The 5 Important Elements of The 21st Century Classroom Infographic ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The 5 Important Elements of The 21st Century Classroom  Infographic ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Treadmill Treasures | Scoop.it

"The pace with which technology is developing makes it really impossible for anyone to predict what kind of classrooms we will have in the next few decades. What is apparent, however, is the fact that new ways of learning are mushrooming here and there as a direct impact of the embrace of this technology in education. Mobile learning, blended learning, flipped classroom, to mention but a few, are some immediate examples that come to the surface when talking about this interactional relationship between the digital and the educational.

 This excellent graphic below sheds more light on how classrooms have been transformed by technology and draws clear comparisons between several learning modes. I invite you to have a look and share with us your thoughts about it. Enjoy"

Infrastructure and proper training for teachers are essentials to make this work. Often teachers are not given enough time to learn about the new technology, which makes them negative towards the change. Management must see the pedagogical benefits of technology in the classroom, not as a money saving exercise!

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 3, 2013 1:13 PM

We should not predict the classrooms of the future. What we need to do is help children learn the skills to be in those classrooms and workplaces which are turbulent and uncertain.

I think homework meets the definition of cruel and unusual punishment. ;)

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, June 22, 2013 11:49 AM

Did we ever need homework? What would make it traditional?

Deborah Banker's curator insight, June 29, 2013 11:17 AM

This is way cool!
