9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning - A Different View

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning - A Different View | pre-service teacher ideas | Scoop.it

What does it mean when you say 21st century learning? This post lists nine characteristics of 21st century learning and provides a rationale. What makes this notable is "the absence of technology. There is very little about iPads, social media, 1:10 laptops, or other tech-implementation. In that way, it is closer to the 'classic' approach to 'good learning' than it is the full-on digital fare we often explore."

The nine characteristics are in the diagram above and listed below:

Learner-centered, Media-driven, Personalized, Tranfer-by-Design, Visibly Relevant, Data-Rich, Adaptable, Interdependent and Diverse.

Create Your Own Custom Embeddable Map with Build-A-Map

Take a look at the demo video and then imagine your elem/MS students researching and presenting a geography-cultural project with this tool . . . 

 

Robin Good: Build-a-Map is a web app which allows you to build custom maps and itineraries by adding visual information layers on top of Google Maps.

 

Differently than creating a map in Google Maps by using the "My Places" feature where you can only add placemarks, paths, and shaded shapes, Build-a-Map allows you to add directly your own data sets, special shapes and custom labels.

 

 

Free and paid versions available: http://www.buildamap.com/plans-pricing.html

 

FAQ: http://www.buildamap.com/faq.html
