    24. 26. Why is it important for children to be exposed to Web2.0?
    25. 27. What is MCEETYA? Ministerial Council on Education, Employment, Training and Youth Affairs.
    26. 28. The current generation of students was born into a highly technological world. They inhabit, navigate and communicate within a society which is both technologically-rich and information-rich. Pedagogy Strategy : learning in an online world. MCEETYA 2005.
    27. 29. Mobile technologies, chat, blogs, wikis, web cams, reality television and interactive games are intrinsic to their worlds. Current technologies shape their expectations and their abilities to access, acquire, manipulate, construct, create and communicate information.” Contemporary Learning: learning in an online world. MCEETYA 2005
    28. 30. Digital Natives are used to receiving information really fast. They like to parallel process and multi-task. They prefer their graphics before their text rather than the opposite. They prefer random access (like hypertext). They function best when networked. They thrive on instant gratification and frequent rewards. They prefer games to “serious” work. Marc Prensky Digital Natives Digital Immigrants ©2001
    29. 31. What is a 21st Century Learner? And what do they need in order to learn?
    30. 32. What is a 21st Century Learner <ul><li>A 21st Century Learner is a learner that utilises current technologies to create, edit, publish, share, evaluate </li></ul><ul><li>and construct new information. </li></ul><ul><li>They learn when the content is relevant, engaging and meaningful to their lives. </li></ul>
    31. 33. How do we create a community of 21st Century Learners? There are 4 key components that create a digital learner.
    32. 34. Pedagogy <ul><li>Pedagogy underpins the whole model. </li></ul><ul><li>It mandates that ICT is integrated into teachers daily practice and that children are exposed to 21st Century Technologies. </li></ul><ul><li>It is how the science of teaching and learning ensures that risks are taken by the teacher and the learner. </li></ul>
    33. 35. Learning <ul><li>Real, relevant and engaging. </li></ul><ul><li>By the teacher and the learner and flexibility in when and where the learning can occur. </li></ul><ul><li>Personalised learning spaces. </li></ul>
    34. 36. School <ul><li>Quality infrastructure. </li></ul><ul><li>Equitable access to resources. </li></ul><ul><li>Provide professional development opportunities for staff. </li></ul>
    35. 37. People <ul><li>Create a community of learners/users </li></ul><ul><li>Collaborate </li></ul><ul><li>Draw on outside experts via ICT </li></ul>
    36. 38. Content <ul><li>ICT needs to be embedded </li></ul><ul><li>Online and interactive </li></ul><ul><li>What has the government made available? </li></ul><ul><li>New content/knowledge can be created through online collaboration. </li></ul>

    38. 40. The challenge is to ensure all schools transform and optimise their use of technology to provide a relevant, sustainable 21st century education. Contemporary Learning: learning in an online world. MCEETYA 2005
