Essential Learning Functions Having the functional ability to fostercollaboration will always be important even asthe tools that let you do this change. Unlike the tools themselves, such essentiallearning functions are stable.Once you identify a function youneed, sort through a growing arrayof tools and select the ones thatdeliver that function best for yourcontext.
Essential Learning Functions1. Ubiquitous learning – 24/7 anytime anywhere2. Authentic learning3. Making things visible and discussable4. Communication5. Collaboration6. Critical thinking and problem solving7. Project management8. Reflection and iterationReinventing Project-Based Learning: Your Field Guide to Real-World Projects in the Digital AgeCopyright ISTE Publications, 2007.
Essential Learning Functions In groups of 5, examine the assignedessential learning function of digital toolsthat are useful for instruction. Each essentiallearning function is described, followed by alist of specific tools. In a creative and collaborative manner, reportback to the large group what you learnedabout the function and possible ways to usedigital tools that deliver that function.

Lesson PlanningWe may remember times when we have hadlittle idea of what we were going to teachbefore we walked into the classroom, andother times when we have been required tocomplete a formal lesson plan.For most of us, planning everyday lessonsfalls somewhere along this continuum.Look at this diagram .Where would you placeyour own lesson planning on this continuum?

Thought to Ponder… Much has been written recently about the impact of socialnetworking tools in teaching and learning and howeducators can build on the skills of their students in usingthese tools. But if educators only integrate the ability ofstudents to connect and socialize, deeper points of learningwill be missed.While good teaching and learning rests oneffective relationships, in an active learning community,those relationships should evolve into actual idea exchangeand knowledge construction.
