Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet?

Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet? | Eduextra |

This interesting table, comparing 20th and 21st Century learning, was conceived by William Rankin, a well credentialed doctor of Education from ACU, Texas.


This graphic, which I found on Educational Technology and Mobile Learning, was originally published on iThinkEd in 2007, where you can read Rankin’s full thoughts that led to his creation of this table.


What’s fascinating for me is the fact this was written 7 years ago. It doesn’t date the message. It challenges us as educators to reflect on how far we have actually progressed.


I started hearing the talk about 21st Century Learning back in the 90s and here we are in 2013 and, looking at this chart from Rankin, we have to ask ourselves; for all the talk and planning, have we really moved out of the 20th Century and embraced what this nebulous concept of 21st Century is really about?

I do agree with Katie that is it scary that education as we know it is going to start changing. It is really scary to think that the American people don't like change but it is happening all the time with education. There are pros about this education change and there are cons. Let's take the cons and turn them into pros.

This is an article about whether education has made it online.

might be interesting 'work' to get staff to do the research and come up with their own table and add a third colunm.....what they do or could do...

I think the idea of a completely online degree is a great one. It saves time and money for everyone involved, but, on the flip side, the education received online may, in some cases, be lacking.

An advertisement for online degrees in education.

This article explains how education is jumping towards technology, even at the college level, and how parents and busy individuals can live their busy lives while also earning the degree they need without taking 8 hours out of their day to do so. 


I believe this is a step in the right direction, because this will help anybody that is searching for a college degree without the college expenses and time investment.

It's great success in education...

Kyle Kohn's curator insight, May 7, 2014 9:24 PM
Career in Education is one of the rare opportunities that may never get outdated. The demand for qualified and talented teachers will persist as long as there is a desire to learn. It's a learning where knowledge, skills, and habits of individuals are handed over from one generation to another through teaching, training and research. Individuals should research innovative ways of teaching to bring about improvement in today's education system.
