  • What will it mean to be an educated person in the 21st Century? This is perhaps the most critical question facing the academic world !Research indicates, sweeping technological changes will effectively change the skill-sets of the future workforce, as well as its approach to work in general-> As a result, societies around the world will need to consider how to make the most of these new opportunities and thus ensure that they remain competitive in the global marketplace->In this global age of information, digital literacy and 21st Century Skills have become a major deciding factor in employing those who are prepared for the future and who are adept at working and living in an age of global information->  © The Economist Intelligence Unit 2008 The future of higher education: How technology will shape learningWhite paper sponsored by the New Media ConsortiumFrom data collected in 2008 global online executive survey-> Of the 289 executives responding to the survey, 189 participants came from higher education and 100 came from corporate settings-> The US accounted for slightly over one-half (154) of all respondents, with the remainder distributed through Europe (69), Asia-Pacific (43) and the rest of the world (23)->  "->->->only about 40% of all survey respondents believe that current graduates are able to compete successfully in today’s global marketplace->“Using Web 2->0 tools to incorporate more Higher Order Thinking Skills has the potential for reinventing traditional instruction from being a mostly passive environment to one where students are actively creating knowledge while practicing 21st Century Skills and demonstrating digital literacy->
  • From ASCD formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development
  • The Partnership for 21st Century Skills has put forth a set of National Action Agenda Principles to clearly define and advance 21st century skills from Kindergarten to Higher Ed in the U->S->21st Century Skills Project: Public schools in 14 of our 50 states have subscribed to the 21st Century Skills curriculum->The idea of using Web 2->0 tools to create instruction that fosters Higher Order Thinking Skills focuses on two of the fundamentals of 21st Century Skills – Learning and Innovation (Higher Order Thinking Skills)Information, Media and Technology (Digital Literacy)Learning and innovation skills those that separate students who are prepared for more and more complex life and work environments in the 21st century, and those who are not-> A focus on creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration is essential to prepare students for the future->" 2-> As our videoconferencing infants show, We live in a technology and media-rich world, including: 1) access to an abundance of information, 2) rapid changes in technology tools, and 3) the ability to collaborate and make individual contributions on an unprecedented scale-> “To be effective in the 21st century, citizens and workers must be able to exhibit a range of functional and critical thinking skills related to information, media and technology->" 
  • Bloom's Digital Taxonomy and Collaboration->Collaboration can take many forms (see above) and value of the collaboration can vary on a large scale, no matter what tool is used to collaborate-> Also, you don't have to collaborate to learn, but often your learning is enhance by doing so-> Collaboration is a 21st Century skill of increasing importance as one that is used throughout the learning process-> In some taxonomic levels the collaboration verbs are included as an element of Bloom's Digital taxonomy and in others its is just a mechanism which can be use to facilitate higher order thinking and learning->So to prepare our students, our teaching should also model collaboration-> A vast array of collaborative tools are available; all of the five tools we will look at today are collaborative->
  • Bloom's Taxonomy is a multi-tiered model of classifying thinking according to six cognitive levels of complexity-> Bloom published the original Taxonomy of the cognitive domain in 1956-> Since then, it has become the de facto standard for classifying educational goals and objectives-> In 2001, Anderson & Krathwohl, published a revision of the original taxonomy-> The goal of the revision was to add relevance for 21st century students and teachers-> The nouns were changed to verb forms to fit the way they are used in learning objectives-> Also, the top two tiers were swapped to make Create the highest order thinking skill-> This version of the taxonomy is more easily applicable in today’s instructionalterms-> (Forehand, M-> (2005)->The new terms are defined as: Remembering: Retrieving, recognizing, and recalling relevant knowledge from long-term memory-> Understanding: Constructing meaning from oral, written, and graphic messages through interpreting, exemplifying, classifying, summarizing, inferring, comparing, and explaining-> Applying: Carrying out or using a procedure through executing, or implementing-> Analyzing: Breaking material into constituent parts, determining how the parts relate to one another and to an overall structure or purpose through differentiating, organizing, and attributing-> Evaluating: Making judgments based on criteria and standards through checking and critiquing-> Creating: Putting elements together to form a coherent or functional whole; reorganizing elements into a new pattern or structure through generating, planning, or producing->
  • In 2008, Andrew Churches took the revised taxonomy one step further by using the “–ing” forms of the verbs to focus on active learning, and, more importantly, adding 21st century/web 2->0 skills as digital additions-> For example, students show that they are “remembering” information when they can recall it to perform a iGoogle Search-> Or, they show they are “understanding” the material when they describe or explain the information in the form of a Tweet on Twitter, or post a comment on a document-> From Churches’ article:  Key Terms - Remembering:Recognizing, listing, describing, identifying, retrieving, naming, locating, finding, Bullet pointing, highlighting, bookmarking, social networking, Social bookmarking, favorite-ing/local bookmarking, Searching, Googling->Key Terms - Understanding:Interpreting, Summarizing, inferring, paraphrasing, classifying, comparing, explaining, exemplifying, advanced searching, Boolean searching, blog journaling, twittering, categorizing and tagging, commenting, annotating, subscribing->  Key Terms - Applying:Implementing, carrying out, using, executing, running, loading, playing, operating, hacking, uploading, sharing, editing-> Key Terms - Analyzing:Comparing, organizing, deconstructing, Attributing, outlining, finding, structuring, integrating, mashing, linking, reverse-engineering, cracking, mind-mapping, validating, tagging-> Key Terms – Evaluating:Checking, hypothesizing, critiquing, experimenting, judging, testing, detecting, monitoring, (blog/vlog) commenting, reviewing, posting, moderating, collaborating, networking, reflecting, (alpha & beta) testing-> Key Terms – Creating:designing, constructing, planning, producing, inventing, devising, making, programming, filming, animating, Blogging, Video blogging, mixing, remixing, wiki-ing, publishing, video-casting, podcasting, directing/producing, creating or building mash ups->  
  • Show versions->
  • What's a Slidecast?A Slidecast is a format for viewing presentation slides synchronized with an audio (mp3) file-> It can be used for conference talks, musical slideshows, webinars, teaching lessons, etc-> You can host your mp3 file on SlideShare->This is typically thought of as a tool to use to get the content out of the class, and made more readily accessible for students, anytime, anyplace->However, it could just as easily be use for students to present their own projects-> Additionally, it can become extremely collaborative when placed or embedded into a blog, were students can then comment on in support or disagreement of the presentation, add additionally resources for consideration of the topic, and debate items of interest shown in the slideshare
  • Log in to g-docs show templates
  • Inmany of the Human Resources courses at Penn State’s World Campus, students are required to compete assignments in groups-> Typically these assignments are created with two steps to the assessment process, first students create in individual assignment, then work collaboratively in small groups using google docs to compile a group assignment-> Both are submitted to the instructor and evaluated->In this example students are to discuss the effectiveness of a number of advertisements->
  • Might have been fun to experiment with using a blog for this presentation->Could be used as a running commentary for a course – having students contribute their thoughts through reflective writing
