10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Wepyirang | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics

Students as Curators of Their Learning Topics | Wepyirang | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Must-read article on ClutterMuseum.com by Leslie M-B, exploring in depth the opportunity to have students master their selected topics by "curating" them, rather than by reading and memorizing facts about them.

 

"Critical and creative thinking should be prioritized over remembering content"

 

"That students should learn to think for themselves may seem like a no-brainer to many readers, but if you look at the textbook packages put out by publishers, you’ll find that the texts and accompanying materials (for both teachers and students) assume students are expected to read and retain content—and then be tested on it.

 

Instead, between middle school (if not earlier) and college graduation, students should practice—if not master—how to question, critique, research, and construct an argument like an historian."

 

This is indeed the critical point. Moving education from an effort to memorize things on which then to be tested, to a collaborative exercise in creating new knowledge and value by pulling and editing together individual pieces of content, resources and tools that allow the explanation/illustration of a topic from a specific viewpoint/for a specific need.

 

And I can't avoid to rejoice and second her next proposition: "What if we shifted the standards’ primary emphasis from content, and not to just the development of traditional skills—basic knowledge recall, document interpretation, research, and essay-writing—but to the cultivation of skills that challenge students to make unconventional connections, skills that are essential for thriving in the 21st century?"

 

What are these skills, you may ask. Here is a good reference where to look them up: http://www.p21.org/storage/documents/P21_Framework_Definitions.pdf (put together by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills)

 

 

Recommended. Good stuff. 9/10

I had a similar conversation yesterday and as I prepare my lit review this thinking has emerged. It is less about content and more about skills, attitudes, habits, practices, etc. in learning.

Priscilla Der's curator insight, April 6, 10:12 PM

This article is a reminder that as we are curating content as teachers so are students. Rather then memorizing or reciting textbook facts, students should be able to steer and set their own learning goals (this is where PBL) comes into mind.

Howard Gardner: Digital Technology and A Well-Rounded Education | DMLcentral

Howard Gardner: Digital Technology and A Well-Rounded Education | DMLcentral | Wepyirang | Scoop.it

As digital technologies become daily staples in both our personal and professional lives, there's been much discussion among educators and community leaders as to whether these devices and innovations could in some way be accountable for shifts in the ethical and moral make-up of contemporary society.

For the last two decades, Howard Gardner has been researching these issues as co-director of the Good Work Project, a MacArthur Foundation funded project that explores the ethical character of young people’s activities in the digital world. In a recent interview with Nesta, an independent charity dedicated to promoting innovation in the UK, Gardner talked about the affordances of digital media as well as the possible threat they pose to a balanced education.

In the seven-minute video interview (below), Gardner explains how the digital age is affecting the conception of “good work” – work he describes as technically excellent, personally engaging, and carried out in an ethical manner. Below are a few excerpts from the video, but in the full interview, Gardner details three specific transformative shifts taking place in education, and he goes on to describe how we can best prepare young people in becoming engaged and morally sound members of a global community.

Getting a well-rounded education now isn’t simply a matter of going to the web and sitting there passively.

Most information that's available, we don't know how it’s assembled and whether it’s accurate. So if you don't know how to probe the sources and say on what basis they made the assertions, you can be fooled into thinking you’re educated when you’re really not.

Educators have a lot on their plate. To help people become literate and to help them acquire disciplined ways of thinking -- it is a big job. So many educators would say, “I would be happy to leave ethics and morality to the home, or religious institutions, or to the neighborhood.” But I can tell you in the United States -- I suspect it’s true in the UK as well -- we can’t count on these other institutions, and we certainly can’t count on the media, which in many ways exhibit immoral and unethical behavior.

Anything we can do to create models for young people as they are growing up as to what it’s like to live in an environment where ethics and morality is what we aspire to -- we don't necessarily achieve it but we aspire to it -- and if we screw up how can we do a better job, I think that's the best gift we can give young people growing up in any society.

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning?

What Are the 7 Mind Frames of Learning? | Wepyirang | Scoop.it

'Learning thrives on error'

"Among all the influences that can make a profound difference in student learning is how we think about our role!  So, start with looking inward and ask about the mind frames you have as an educator. 

It is through these mind frames that we make decisions in the classroom and school, and it is argued that educators highly imbued with these mind frames are among the high impact educators."

Teachers need to recast themselves as learners alongside students. The days of the expert are behind us despite the advent of TED talks and other media where we still seem to think the sage on the stage is the way to impart knowledge, wisdom, and truth. There are moments for that, but learning is very relational, contingent, contextual, and personal.

10 Predictions for Personalized Learning for 2013 | Wepyirang | Scoop.it

What will Personalized Learning look like in 2013? The main change that will happen in teaching and learning in 2013 will be about empowerment. Teachers and learners will be more empowered to take charge of their learning. We will see this through the evidence they share as they learn.

Interesting, in other ways this could also be seen as framing learning as a constant performance of assessment. Where do you draw the line ?
