5 Characteristics of 21st Century Learning

17 May

This week I have been preparing work for the Catholic Convention next month. I have been thinking a great deal about schools in this century. The following take on 21st century learning is notable because of the absence of technology. This is ironic as my presentation is about Technology in Catholic schools.

In my mind in these characteristic there is very little about iPads, social media laptops, or any other app. In my mind it should be all about good pedagogy complemented by good tools.

  1. Learner-centered

Or to be more specific student centred. We as schools should be a learning network.

  1. Personalized

All students should have a personalised learning plan picking from the best achievement standards to create a Vocational Pathway.

  1. Data-Rich

The school should be driven by goals that are support by data. A good hunch will be backed up by goals.

  1. Values Driven

At the heart of the school should be the values that drive it.

  1. Diverse and Inclusive

This is giving learners a wide range of learning experiences that includes all students.

What do you think?
