Has Education arrived in the 21st Century yet?

There have been many posts about the difference between 20th and 21st century learning. In this post Gleeson raises the question "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?" He speaks of it as an "Education Revolution."

He first notes that there are factors that are necessary for this revolution: money, timing, change of mindset, time and effort. He then goes on to address the six areas raised in the table above, asking questions that need to be considered. Each section is listed below and one of his questions is also listed below it.

Classroom Presentations and Materials

*  Are we as teachers still in the 20th Century and pre-conceiving and preparing all the content the students need?

Teacher/Student Roles in the Classroom

* Have teachers old and new had sufficient training in how to get their students to become participants and agents while they guide and mentor them?

How Do We Deal With Information

* Do students and parents (teachers?) value these higher level skills as much as the easier to identify/rank/reward 20th century skills?

Access to Course Content

* How many teachers are sufficiently aware of the technology available that can provide this access and how can we train them so they see it is easy to do and beneficial?

Accessibility of Students and Teachers

* How well versed in digital citizenship are both teachers and students in order to use social media responsibly and effectively?

Curriculum Disciplinary Boundaries

* How long will it take to make learning truly integrated like life in general?

Click through to the post to look at the questions. Do you have other questions that should be raised?

Comparaison n'est pas raison entre l'école du 20ème et celle du 21ème siècle

Le document fait une comparaison entre la façon d'éduquer du XXème siècle et celle du XXIèeme. On nous explique l'évolution qui s'est produite par rapport aux matériels utilisés, les rôles des élèves, parents et maîtres, les contenus...

Je pense que c'est un document intéressant plutôt pour le maître à fin de connaître les différentes changements produits en un siècle.

PreZent for iPad

PreZent for iPad | Education4Development |

The PreZent app is a new powerful presentation tool that allows ... you to combine multiple mediums in a seamless digital presentation... What sets apart the present app is the ability to ad motion/video throughout the presentation in juxtaposition with still imagery to allow for a very fluid presentation. There is no play button. The video plays automatically as soon as the page has turned. This allows for an uninterrupted presentation...

Here is another app for designing presentations. The comments/reviews sound like it might be worth the small cost to for use.
