21st century technology skills

Classroomdevices• Mid 20th century, technologies started to affect classrooms, primarily TVs at that time.• Teachers are the controllers and main resource from which the students learn.• 1963, Vocational Education Act passes. Schools got more financial support for technical devices in the classroom.• In the end of 20th century, schools bring computers and internet connect in teaching.• 21st century, Apple tablets are introduced to classrooms and allow students to interact online.
How did we teach?• Before the technology blooming in classrooms, teachers basically used textbooks and handwriting demonstration on blackboard for teaching.• Later on, when radio and imagine were available in the classrooms, students could obtain information more lively and vividly.• With the development of technology in classrooms, our students are gradually exposed in a multi-resource environment for learning.
Computers• Computers were invented mid-20th century.• Year 1951, the first- generation Univac computer delivered to the US census bureau• 1955, IBMs first commercial computer is sold. Computers were purchased for military uses in that period of time.• 1970s, some schools started to bring mini computers into classrooms. Apple 1 computers are donated to schools too.• Late 1990s, computers and internet are widely used in schools.
Where do we see technologyin the CCS Technology is integrated in the CCS in both English Language Arts Standards and Math Standards. Instead an expected skill, technology in the CCS is rather more described as a tool for students to approach success. Both of the Math Standards and the ELA Standards suggested schools use appropriate technologies to allow the most variety of students be ready for their post-school lives, especially the English learners and students with special needs.
Technology & The ELAStandards It requires students who are college and career ready in reading, writing, speaking, listening, and the language use technology and digital media strategically and capably. The CCS ELA expects students to start using technology as early as 3 grade, and then gradually build up from there. By the of time when students finish 12th grade, they are supposed to take advantage of technology for individual and shared writing products and interact in comments
Technology & TheMathematics Standards Students should be acquainted with the technologies, such as graphing calculators, and then become mindfully user to apply technologies to mathematics. The CCS Math expects students to draw with technology in geometry, to interpret technology generated scientific notation in expressions, to use technologies for solving systems of equations.
Technology Is A Tool inMathematics Technology is not defined as specific in Math Standards as it is in ELS Standards. It is associated to different focuses in math, such as geometry, linear, statistics and so on, not explained by each grade. Technologies are mentioned in the standards when students are required to solve higher level or more complicated problems.
Educators and schools must embrace technology and use it to enhance the learning experience. Educators using and integrating current technology tools in their learning curriculum are better preparing their students for higher education and the everyday workforce.
The Partnership for 21st Century Skills is a national organization that advocates for 21st century readiness for every student.To be effective in the 21st century, citizens and workers must be able to exhibit a range offunctional and critical thinking skills related to information, media and technology.
Information, Communication, andTechnology Literacy Use technology as a tool to research, organize, evaluate and communicate information. Use digital technologies (computers, PDAs, media players, GPS, etc.), communication/networking tools and social networks appropriately to access, manage, integrate, evaluate and create information to successfully function in a knowledge economy. Apply a fundamental understanding of the ethical/legal issues surrounding the access and use of information technologies.
