21 st Century Skills- The New “Core” of the Core Curriculum

The core is now a blend

Teaching for understanding is at the heart of 21 st Century Skills

Grant Wiggins

THE BIG “ What makes a question BIG ?

THE BIG A question is big or weighty if it has significant depth and breadth….”

THE BIG “ Another aspect of ‘bigness’ is the time it consumes. Vital issues remain alive over days, months, and years, unlike simple or superficial inquiries.”

THE BIG “ We are not looking for an answer, really; we are inviting inquiry and reflection.” Grant Wiggins, Pearson Literature

 

 

 

Big Questions invite creativity, innovation, communication, collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving and decision making.

The emphasis on understanding must be core to all of our teaching tools

 

In their hands...

On their terms...

Digital instruction puts the world at our finger tips

 

Digital instruction can be fun!

 

Digital instruction can enhance understanding…

 

Digital instruction provides access for all…

 

When we use digital to teach we understand in a whole new way

BUT It’s not just enough to use digital to teach…

… we must also teach students to use digital

“ Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants” Marc Prensky, 2001

You go to the internet second for information, rather than first… Signs of an Immigrant’s “Accent”

You read the manual for a computer program rather than assuming the program will teach you to use it…

You print emails (or have the secretary do it) before you read them…

You have never changed the original ring tone on your cell phone…

Prettygirl: Hi, hi!! KTNana3: Hi… Prettygirl: SUP KTNana3: Nada The Language of the Natives

Prettygirl: OMG!! My dad went out in the garage and a tarantula came out at him!!!!! KTNana3: NO WAY!!!

Prettygirl: OMG!! He screamed and freaked! He almost jumped to the roof!!!!!! KTNana3: LOL

Prettygirl: DIR… GTG… TTYL… C U!

There is an Access Gap

New Literacies Donald Leu

 

New Literacies provide a model for digital work and learning

New Literacies promote and model digital citizenship and responsibility

Creativity Collaboration Communication Innovation Decision Making Problem Solving Life and Career Skills Critical Thinking Information, Media & Tech Literacy Global, Financial & Civic Literacy 21 st Century Skills

Teaching for understanding is at the heart of 21 st Century Skills
