The 8 Digital Skills Students Need for The Future | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

The 8 Digital Skills Students Need for The Future | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Why e-Learning? | Scoop.it

In a recent research article published by PEW Internet under the title " The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing and How Writing is Taught in Schools ", 91% of teachers surveyed report that " judging the quality of information " as the top of the digital skills students need for the future. Similarly, another 91 report that "writing effectively" as being essential skill for students while 54 % of teachers think that working with audio, video or graphic content as being important but not essential.

Reading these stats together with other sections in this research  made me think that the teachers surveyed in this study  ( so as not to fall in the blander of generalization ) put digital citizenship on top of the continuum of digital skills ; in other words, knowing how to use web tools comes secondary to knowing the reasons for which to use them, or at least that is how I interpret it. Have a look at the graph below and try to read the entire report to learn more about this study.

Keeping Students Engaged in the Online Classroom | Faculty Focus

Keeping Students Engaged in the Online Classroom | Faculty Focus | Why e-Learning? | Scoop.it

By: Ronald C. Jones


As an online instructor, I can fulfill the minimum requirements of the university regarding interacting with students, or I can create a learning environment that facilitates student engagement in the classroom. Students enroll in online classes because of the need for scheduling flexibility, work-life-school balance, costs, and convenience. Although online learning holds many advantages, the potential drawbacks revolve around the lack of personal interaction between the instructor and student, as well as the student-to-student contact. Keeping students engaged in the course is a vital function of an effective instructor.

Strong commonsense advice.  To summarize; use the online teaching environment to connect to your students with empathy and compassion.


Do more than the minimum. Be a teacher.

This article is important in showing how change will not simply occur because of the creation of new technology. There needs to be some paradigm shift in the way people think.
