How Do You Define 21st-Century Learning? Published Online: October 11, 2010 Published in Print: October 12, 2010, as How Do You Define 21st-Century Learning? By Elizabeth Rich The term "21st-century skills" is generally used to refer to certain core competencies such as collaboration, digital literacy, critical thinking, and problem-solving that advocates believe schools need to teach to help students thrive in today's world. In a broader sense, however, the idea of what learning in the 21st century should look like is open to interpretation—and controversy. To get a sense of how views on the subject align—and differ—we recently asked a range of education experts to define 21st-century learning from their own perspectives. Richard AllingtonProfessor of Education, University of Tennessee; Early-Reading Expert I’m an old guy. Barnett BerryFounder and CEO, Center for Teaching Quality Sarah Brown Wessling2010 National Teacher of the Year Twenty-first-century learning embodies an approach to teaching that marries content to skill.

10 things Teachers Want in Professional Development sketch by @SylviaDuckworth While on Twitter today this graphic caught my eye. It was posted by @MindShiftKQED linking to an article on their blog. The sketch itself was created by Sylvia Duckworth and it definitely caught my attention. I began to think about the kinds of professional learning we offer at Powerful Learning Practice and asked myself if we were honoring what teachers want. No one works harder and thinks deeper than the folks at PLP who selflessly plan and offer the coaching, professional learning, e-courses, and products available on our site. But I was curious if what we do we aligns with this list of teacher wants? 1. At PLP, we like to think we listen. But I wonder about the district empowerment of the teachers before they show up in our sessions. It has been my experience that often teachers are too shy to speak up about their professional learning needs. 2. This is so important. 3. Change is not easy. 4. All of us at PLP have been classroom teachers. 5. 6. Exactly! 7.
9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning The label of “21st Century learning” is vague, and is an idea that we here at TeachThought like to take a swing at as often as possible, including: –weighing the magic of technology with its incredible cost and complexity –underscoring the potential for well thought-out instructional design –considering the considerable potential of social media platforms against its apparent divergence from academic learning Some educators seek out the ideal of a 21st century learning environment constantly, while others prefer that we lose the phrase altogether, insisting that learning hasn’t changed, and good learning looks the same whether it’s the 12th or 21st century. At TeachThought, we tend towards the tech-infused model, but do spend time exploring the limits and challenges of technology, the impact of rapid technology change, and carefully considering important questions before diving in head-first. The size of the circles on the map are intended to convey priority. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9.
Growth Mindset: Personal Accountability and Reflection I am an adjunct faculty for several teacher education and educational technology programs. I have been so for a few decades. During that time I have noticed the changing nature of student behaviors and expectations regarding their class projects and assignments. Students seem to expect perfect grades for not so perfect work. I have been studying, blogging and presenting about the growth mindset (see The Educator with a Growth Mindset: A Staff Workshop). Mediocre is often good enough for me as long as I get the work done.I expect my teachers to give me full credit for completion and submission of my work. In response to these experiences, I developed a Personal Accountability and Reflection series of questions. Did I work as hard as I could have? Like this: Like Loading...

The Anytime, Anywhere Learning Foundation The 21 Steps to 21st Century Learning framework is a guide for schools and school districts as they envision, plan, implement, evaluate and expand 1:1 learning in their schools. It has been more than two decades since the first 1:1 initiative began. In that time, thousands of schools and millions of students have been involved in 1:1 pilots or full-scale implementations. A 1:1 initiative can help lay the foundation on which new learning dynamics can be built. Looking back over the last few decades, there have been many pockets of exceptional work, usually driven by teachers who have seized upon the opportunities provided by the "instrument whose music is ideas." In analyzing the experiences of these 1:1 initiatives, it became clear that the most successful initiatives all have one main characteristic in common: they are first and foremost concerned with learning, not laptops.

Our SIG Day speakers – Jane Spiro Our TDSIG Day at the IATEFL Annual Conference in Glasgow kicks off with Jane Spiro, who will be speaking on the topic of reading and how this can shape us as teachers, running right from childhood. In this first post about our SIG Day speakers, you’ll find links to a video to introduce Jane and she also answers a few quick TD-related questions… Jane Spiro – We are what we read: how reading shapes teachers What’s your session at IATEFL all about? My session looks at ways in which teachers are shaped by their reading, not only professionally or academically, but outside professional life, and from childhood: first experiences hearing stories read aloud, favourite childhood books, books in adolescence and early adulthood which changed your view of the world. Jane (wearing the garland) with teacher educators in Hawaii If you were stuck on a desert island, which book would you take with you and why? What piece of advice would you give to a teacher starting to think about their practice?
Servei d'Informàtica » Ciber-plagio y software antiplagio La utilización de las Tecnologías de la Información y la comunicación (TIC) se ha convertido en un elemento vertebrador en los procesos de enseñanza-aprendizaje (E/A) en la Universidad de Alicante. Sólo con mirar algunos datos de la utilización de Campus Virtual podemos hacernos una idea del protagonismo que han aquirido ciertas funcionalidades en la comunicación entre los actores principales del proceso de E/A (tutorías, debates, anuncios, etc.), en el intercambio de materiales y referencias (enlaces, materiales, referencias bibliográficas, etc.) y en los procesos de evaluación (pruebas objetivas y controles). Son muchos los aspectos positivos que se podrían extraer de la utilización de las TIC en los procesos de E/A: comodidad, asincronía, rapidez en la comunicación, reducción notable de la utilización de papel, etc. Ahora bien, la irrupción de las TIC también ha provocado o facilitado importantes cambios que no pueden valorarse de forma positiva. – Software antiplagio.
