Transcript of 21st Century Learning

Teaching the Technological Student The Mystery of the 21st Century The Right Way Forward...
Starts In the Past Solution 1 Solution #2 - Quadrant D
Rigor and Relevance Model In Conclusion If we are able to combine the rigor model with the application model, we give created student-based learning in which students use their learning to be able to apply their learning from several disciplines to real-world, unpredictable scenarios.

Students will no longer say "tell us what to do", but will able to be independent thinkers with tools to become life long learners.

When we add in technology, we give students more tools to discover their unique creativity and develop innovative ways to accomplish repetitive assignments. Problem: The number of technological distractions in the classroom has never been higher. Martin Marquez

Feb 15th, 2013 Old Solution: Ban all technological devices from use in the classroom. New Solution: Integrate the tools into the learning process. This is the basis of 21st Century Learning. But is technology really a problem, or a passing fad that, if ignored, will eventually go away? No, technology is not going away! If we don't harness it, we, as educators, are doomed to be replaced by it.

21st Century Learning attempts to mold technology, real life skills, and problem solving together to create a new type of learning, a new type of thinking, a new style of engagement.

Imagine all the things that go into video creation...how much of that is taught in classes? Combine Rigor + Relevance Application Model: Relevance Ask yourself if your style of teaching matches 21st Century Learning:

- Do you create pathways for creativity or innovation with projects or assignments?
- If so, please share!
- If not, why not?

- Educated out of creativity
- Issues holding jobs after graduation due to lack of innovation Moving Forward 21st Century Learning
Escaping the Mystery - 21st Century skills represent the necessary student outcomes for the 21st Century.
- Innovation
- Technology
- Life and Career
- 21st Century Themes
- This is a necessary (and different) approach to education!
- Authentic assessments replacing formative and summative.
- Why bother with 21st Century Learning? "You can't stop a train after it has left the station".

Social media, computers, and online interaction are here. There is nothing we can do to stop it. If we try to resist, we will be forever lost in the maze...

If we resist, we lose an irreplaceable tool that can only serve to enhance our lessons, to further engage our students. But the world sure has changed… Not much has changed in 60 years, including where the emphasis in education is. Schools Today They may not be college students yet, but these are the kinds of students that will eventually pass through our doors...after several more years of exposure to technology. Before we begin, please turn to someone nearby and share any strategies or ways that you have used technology in:
- Your own personal education
- Your life
- Your classroom A Momentary Pause So To Sum Up... Students today are entering a vastly different world than in the 1950’s, but they are being educated for it in nearly the same way.

Students lack innovative and creative capacities, leading to employers rejecting them. Why is there such a lack?

What is the solution? One solution is to shift from the old taxonomy to the more recent Digital Taxonomy Still, that seems like throwing ourselves into the deep end without understanding why... Understanding Solution #1 How can we change from the old Bloom's to the new Bloom's? Application Model
Relevance of learning to life and work. Bloom’s Taxonomy
Level of challenge of the learning for the student, often known as rigor
Solution 2: Rigor & Relevance What is Rigor?
Oftentimes (but not always correctly) it means “harder”, “more complex”

Bloom’s Taxonomy = Rigor Rigor Level 1: Knowledge of one Discipline
Level 2: Application Within Discipline
Level 3: Application Across Disciplines
Level 4: Application to real-world predictable scenarios
Level 5: Application to real-world unpredictable scenarios Application Model: Relevance 1) List characteristics of a good speech

2) Give a presentation to your class

3) Orally defend a senior exhibition or project

4) Present a point of view on an issue at a public meeting

5) As a student representative, respond to questions at a school board meeting Application Model –
Public Speaking Think of all the things we can do with technology...how can we add technology into the Application Model? Social media in general? As we watch, consider each level of Old Bloom's, Digital Bloom's, and Application Model... Students could have done a report on the usefulness of the library, but using technology and creativity, they created a more meaningful video. Did anything stand out during the video? Both models are useful, so why not take the best of both, and combine them? High Low Low High Right
