A Diagram Of 21st Century Pedagogy -
The modern learner has to sift through a lot of information. That means higher level thinking skills like analysis and evaluation are necessary just to reduce all the noise and establish the credibility of information. There is also the matter of utility. Evaluating information depends as much on context and circumstance as it does the nature of the data itself. Context matters, and the diagram from edorigami below captures this, though not from the perspective of the student and content knowledge, but the teacher and various pedagogical components themselves, including Higher-Order Thinking Skills, Peer Collaboration, and Media Fluency. (See also our framework on the 6 channels of 21st century Learning.) Overall the diagram offers a nice framework for the concept not of 21st century learning, but 21st century pedagogy by focusing on several core components of modern learning: metacognition (reflection), critical thinking, technology, and problem and project-based learning.

Top 100 Influential Education Blogs | Onalytica Blog UPDATE: You can see an updated list here. Over the last 5 years there was a sharp increase in the number of education blogs in various areas such as art education, technology, creative writing, mathematics, or drama, from primary school level to lifelong learning approaches. Despite this surge in education blogs, there haven't been many attempts at classifying the blogs according to their authority. The Influence Index we compute at Onalytica shares the same idea with the impact factor that nowadays all academic journals publish on their cover. Our influence measuring methodology is based on the Input/Output model developed by the Nobel Prize winner Wassily Leontief. The model takes into account all references and citations between the blogs. The Onalytica Influence Index is the impact factor of a blog, or how much that blog matters. Popularity represents how popular or well-known the blog is among other education blogs.

Anatomy of A Great Teacher After publishing the 22 signs of a true teacher one of my readers here shared with me this awesome infographic entitled The Anatomy of A Great Teacher and after going through it I found it really worth sharing with you here. I have posted several graphics whose topical theme is teachers and I highly appreciate such kinds of work because teachers do deserve more. A great teacher changes the lives of their students forever; they instill confidence and knowledge in every student who crosses their path. What makes a great teacher, and how do they treat their students and their classroom? Source: Top Teaching Colleges

Ecole changer de cap! 61 Educational Apps For The 21st Century Student It’s not entirely clear what it means to be a “21st century student.” And in 2013, it’s also not entirely clear what the definition of an “educational app” might be. Just as students are no longer tethered to textbooks (in most formal education settings), apps that are strictly didactic–designed to promote academic proficiency and foundational fluency–are often the first that parents and teachers reach for when looking for something “constructive.” But the reality is, the 21st century is as much about finding, evaluating, managing, sharing, and curating information as it is reading texts, answering questions, and applying memorized formulas to neatly scaffolded problems. So, critical thinking and transfer over accuracy and recall. In that context, what are often thought of as “productivity apps” are not only “educational,” but are often the real marrow of 21st century learning. Which is probably not a coincidence, and what makes the following list by Michael Hyatt useful.

Using the E-Portfolio to Validate Student Learning February 12, 2013 By: Ken Scott, EdD in Instructional Design, Teaching with Technology Too often our students consider their work in the classroom as required assignments—not work that has anything to do with what they will be doing in the real world. I see the need for students to understand that the work they do has value-added merit as part of their overall repertoire of academic preparation and social contributions. For example, when I begin the e-portfolio class, I ask students to compile a list of items they would want to use as samples of actual work accomplishments: community service participation, papers written, projects developed, presentations, poster sessions, conferences attended, professional development, and the like. In our media-hyped, socially networked, information-at-your-smart-phone-apps world, why have we in higher education not capitalized on this process? Recently, I attended an Oracle workshop at a neighboring university. Dr.

Futuribles Revue futuribles, n° 388, septembre 2012 Préparons l’École de 2030 En novembre 2011, nous publiions dans ces colonnes (n° 379) un dossier consacré à l’École à l’ère numérique : comment apprend-on à l’heure d’Internet, comment évoluent les processus de connaissance et les pratiques des élèves et des enseignants sous l’effet des mutations liées au numérique, etc. ? En cette rentrée, nous prolongeons la réflexion, grâce à cet article d’Alain Bouvier, par une prospective de l’École à l’horizon 2030 dans les principaux pays développés. De tout cela il ressort qu’il faudra sans doute beaucoup plus, à l’avenir, articuler les actions des différentes parties prenantes du système éducatif (État, communautés, partenaires, employeurs, etc.) et accepter une certaine externalisation des apprentissages, en ayant à cœur qu’elle réponde aux objectifs de qualité, d’équité et d’éthique indispensables aux élèves des sociétés mondialisées et numérisées qui sont les nôtres. Notre site est en cours d’évolution.

The 12 Must-Have Skills Of Modern Learners If you consider yourself a modern learner and take advantage of modern technology in order to improve yourself, then you probably have some or most of these characteristics. If you use technology to bolster your understanding of a particular topic, use critical thinking and problem-solving skills to tackle tough questions, or simply collaborate across networks (online and in-person), then you’ve got some of the skills of modern learners. That’s the idea behind this fabulous visualization from User-Generated Education . Another critical skill I want to point out is empathy and global stewardship. What’s your favorite skill?
