A Free Poster on The Learning and Thinking Skills of The 21st Century Students

A Free Poster on The Learning and Thinking Skills of The 21st Century Students
January 19, 2014 I have been writing and sharing a lot of materials on the topics of digital citizenship and digital literacy and today I got a request on the Facebook page of this blog from a teacher in Scotland asking for a visual that would sum up the core skills underlying these two concepts. I instantly thought about crafting a poster to share with all of you here. I went through my archive and sifted through several posts I published in the past and finally after a lot of deliberation I settled on the skills outlined in the visual below. I invite you to have a look and probably print off and use it in your classroom with your students. The visual is free for anyone to use and download provided that you do not charge people for it and you credit back Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. Enjoy

The 27 Characteristics of A 21st Century Teacher "21st Century Educator" is probably the most popular buzzword in today's education. There is a growing and heated debate whether or not to label educators as 21st century and each camp has its own concept and arguments, however, for me personally I see teaching in 21st century as having undergone a paradigmatic shift. This is basically due to the emerging of the " social web" and the huge embrace of technology and particularly the mobile gadgetry in our classrooms. It would be unfair to ignore these huge transformations and their impact on education. Therefore, and as a result of these changes teachers now are required to have digital skills that were not called for before.

Two Useful iPad Apps to Create Classroom Posters April 5, 2014 In today's post I am sharing with you two awesome iPad apps to use with your kids and students to create posters.The process is very easy and kids will definitely enjoy them. The apps provide a wide variety of pre-made styles and templates to choose from and any poster created via these apps can be shared through social media websites like Twitter and Facebook, emailed, or printed in different formats. Have a look and share with your colleagues ‘I would love to teach but…’ (Clarification: An earlier version of this post noted that the teacher who wrote the e-mail I published used “a sample” from Kris Nielson but it did not give further explanation. This version explains that the sample comes from a 2012 post that was a resignation letter from teacher Kris L. Nielsen of Monroe, N.C. and sent to Union County Public Schools, and this version makes clearer what came directly from Nielsen.) I recently published a post with various answers to the question: How hard is teaching?

Bloom's Digital Taxonomy This is the introduction to Bloom's Digital Taxonomy. The different taxonomical levels can be viewed individually via the navigation bar or below this introduction as embedded pages. This is an update to Bloom's Revised Taxonomy which attempts to account for the new behaviours and actions emerging as technology advances and becomes more ubiquitous. Bloom's Revised Taxonomy describes many traditional classroom practices, behaviours and actions, but does not account for the new processes and actions associated with Web 2.0 technologies, infowhelm (the exponential growth in information), increasing ubiquitous personal technologies or cloud computing.Bloom's Digital Taxonomy isn't about the tools or technologies rather it is about using these to facilitate learning.

A Nice Classroom Poster Featuring The 21st Century Mobile Social Learning I just came across this awesome poster in a tweet by iPadWells and wanted you to have a look as well and probably use it in your class. The content of this poster is more food for thought than a descriptive account of the concept of the 21st century mobile social learning, or at least that is how I see it. Below is a brief analysis of what I believe are s the three main digital practices or themes highlighted in this poster: 1- Flipped Learning In flipped learning model, teachers create video content and animated illustrations and share them with students through some video hosting platforms like for instance YouTube, Vimeo, class blog or wiki..etc.

Downside of Grit April 6, 2014 The Downside of "Grit" What Really Happens When Kids Are Pushed to Be More Persistent? By Alfie Kohn [This is an expanded version of the published article, which appeared in the Post's Sunday "Outlook" section. It has been adapted from chapter 7 of The Myth of the Spoiled Child: Challenging the Conventional Wisdom about Children and Parenting.] New Bloom's Taxonomy Poster for Teachers August 29, 2014 Bloom's taxonomy is one of the most popular learning taxonomies ever. Since its release in the last half of the 20th century, it has been widely adopted within the education sector and was used extensively to design and create learning materials and curriculum content. Bloom's taxonomy maps out learning skills along a thinking continuum that starts with lower order thinking skills in one end (e.g. remembering and understanding) and moves up in difficulty to the other end that embraces higher order thinking skills (e.g. evaluating and creating). However, Bloom's taxonomy has been repeatedly modified to suit the requirements of the era in which it is used .
