In fact, these skills represent the ethos of the 21st century epoch, an era where knowledge economy and the social capital are so interdependently connected that it becomes extremely hard to decipher the dividing line between the two.

The top 10 skills for the 21st century worker, according this visual, include:

Students under your tutelage will graduate eventually and will be out looking for colleges or jobs. They might do this the old-fashioned way by looking through the newspaper and pounding the pavement. The other possibility is that they’ll take advantage of Web tools and utilize our vast worldwide online network to secure their future careers. What better time to start preparing for this than during their formative years in school?

[Infographic] 10 proven tips for efficient LMS administration

[Infographic] 10 proven tips for efficient LMS administration | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it
A Learning Management System (LMS) is a software application that helps deliver online training programs. An LMS can also be used to track, document and report learners’ process.

In order to track the learner’s progress, various activities need to be performed by LMS administrators. For example, when a new employee needs to be trained, the LMS administrator has to add the information of the staff member in the LMS, assign the specified courses to him, track his progress, generate the required reports and submit them to training managers. Likewise, there are many other activities that need to be performed by an LMS administrator.

It is easy to perform these activities in an organization with a few employees. But, it takes a lot of time and effort to ensure effective LMS administration in a company with a large workforce. Here are 10 tips to make the LMS administrator’s life easy.

The difference between Skilled Learners and Good Students

The difference between Skilled Learners and Good Students | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

The skilled learners of the world don’t always excel in their studies. And I don’t mean Gates and Einstein. I’m talking about the huge number of people who are passionate about knowledge, who have a real knack for remembering facts, who are self-taught musicians and casual scholars. People who ignore homework because it’s boring to them, fail geometry because their teacher makes it boring to them, don’t listen to lectures because they’d rather absorb the information themselves. These people aren’t good students; they’re natural learners. And we’re doing them–and the world– a disservice by treating them like second class citizens.

 

“I spend a lot of time these days talking and writing about how we are asking teachers to redefine what it means to be a teacher,” writes David Warlick in his popular 2¢ worth blog. “But perhaps a significant part of this exercise in redefinition should involve our students– an explicit remolding of perceptions of these youngsters, in order to fully shift the relationship between student and teacher, learner and master learner.”

 

Here’s how he breaks down the difference between learners and students in his own chart:

Worst practice in ICT use in education

Worst practice in ICT use in education | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it
In business and in international development circles, much is made about the potential for 'learning from best practice'. Considerations of the use of educational technologies offer no exception to this impulse. That said, 'best practice' in the education sector is often a rather elusive concept (at best! some informed observers would say it is actually dangerous). The term 'good practice' may be more useful, for in many (if not most) cases and places, learning from and adapting 'good' practices
