    • 1. Digital Toolbox for st Century Learning 21 Britt Gow Al-Taqwa College 2013
    • 2. How is it different? • Very fast – almost instant – sharing of audio, text and images. • Much more data stored in smaller spaces. • Visual data are more prominent. • Global access – few restrictions to communication across the world. • 24/7 – not restricted to 9-to-5 on weekdays ‘school’ or ‘working’ hours. • Anyone can publish – not just the ‘experts’. • Many more opportunities to find people of similar interests.
    • 3. Today’s Learners are: • • • • • • • Multi-taskers Digitally literate Mobile and connected 24/7 Experiential Social Visual/spatial learners Fast response times, short attention spans © 2006 “Teaching the 21st Century Learner” http://depd.wisc.edu/series/06_4168.pdf
    • 4. What does this mean for teaching and learning? • Teachers are no longer the “font of all knowledge”. • Students don’t need to memorize facts. • Questions shouldn’t be easily ‘googled’. • Instead of rote learning; analysis, evaluation inquiry, problem-solving and creation should be the focus. • Students need to be taught to evaluate the reliability of information. • Opportunities for peer collaboration with likeminds – “Collective Knowledge Construction”
    • 5. Voice recording • For reluctant writers and students with literacy difficulties • Assess the understanding of concepts in science (predict, observe, explain) • Tell stories and then convert to text • Blabberise • Voki • Voicethread
    • 6. Notice boards and sticky notes • • • • • • • Brainstorming Exit slips – what have you learnt? Questions students have about a topic Surveys – what do you want to learn? Reminders Padlet (formerly Wallwisher) Linoit
