Learning Environments How does the 21st Century Skills Movement compare to Traditional Education? Common concept: The teacher stands in the front of the classroom and lectures while the students listen. Often fails to account for VARIETY in tradition: discussions, debates, projects, participatory, lectures, seminars, laboratories, tutorials Ken Robinson: Changing Education Paradigms
http://www.ted.com/talks/ken_robinson_changing_education_paradigms.html What did Ken Robinson say were the 2 reasons for reform? How do we educate our children to take their place in the economies of the 21st century given that we can’t even anticipate what the economy will look like at the end of next week? What is the advantage of using the mode of education that was shown in the video? What is the disadvantage of using this mode of education, shown in this video? According to E.D.Hirsch, the central purpose used to be to create virtuous citizens with enough shared knowledge for all to participate in the public sphere.
A complementary purpose of education is to prepare us for solitude, if we know how to be alone, then we may be less prone to distraction, escapism, and boredom. Education also exists fro its own sake: an endless adventure, a struggle, a delight.
At its fullest and best, education prepares us to be with others and apart, to enjoy the life of the mind, to survive and prosper, to bring up new generations, to act with integrity and conscience, to pursue useful and interesting work, and to participate in civic and cultural action and thought. Ken Robinson: Changing Education Paradigms
http://www.ted.com/talks/ken_robinson_changing_education_paradigms.html How can you be sure students have the capability to use the appropriate media? When is using this media most appropriate? How do you balance the role of the teacher with the role of technology? Is using technology is just a fad? Opportunities to connect to the whole world
Instant feedback
More communication between the teacher and students EXIT TICKET How will today’s topic on 21st Century Skills influence your teaching process and instructional methods in the future? In response to the "Changing Education Paradigm" video and the need to teach our children in this ever-changing economy, Page 351 Paragraph 2 says: "Those who have reservations about the 21st Century Skills model are concerned that it may just become another pedagogical fad, that it demands too much change too fast, that it is too oriented to economic forces, that the skills emphasis downplays subject matter content, and that the recommended skills are in need of a more specific definition."
Also from Page 366 bottom paragraph: "We should make sure that young people leave school informed of the past so they do not get swept up in the rages of the present. We should keep our lives and culture resonant by studying excellent literature, philosophy, historical thought, science and mathematics- by reading poetry aloud, singing, and returning to books we read long ago. Much of this activity is solitary and requires quiet." (6'37-7'37) CURRICULUM TEACHERS TESTING objectives - Students will be able to:
