eLearning Principles:

The Implications of 21st Century Technology on Teaching & Learning

www.NortelLearniT.org

slide4

21st Century eLearning

  • 1) Integrate Technology
  • Our students are Millenial Learners!
  • They expect a high degree of technology integration
  • The Millenial generation was grown-up with computers and other 21st Century communications technologies; they are digital natives!

21st Century eLearning

  • 2) Lead with Hands-On
  • Engage and Excite: Most students, especially Millenials, do not like being lectured
  • Millenials are accustomed to multi-tasking, teamwork, collaboration and activity
  • Don’t just tell (lecture) students; show them and lead them to discovery too!

Showcase Project

  • The Power of the Technology Integration Lesson Plan: Ancient Observatories
  • Using the 5 + 1 E’s
  • Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate, Evaluate, Extend
  • Includes hyperlinks, student examples and grading rubric

21st Century eLearning

  • 3) Build Hard Skills and Academic Standards into Lesson Plans
  • Technology allows real-time tracking of student progress on skills and standards.
  • The Arlington County Public Schools in Arlington, Virginia is developing a free piece of software, called CanDo, to facilitate online skills tracking.

21st Century eLearning

  • 4) Use Students as Assistants and Encourage Them to Teach
  • They are technology “natives”, as opposed to their teacher “immigrants”
  • Teachers become facilitators, and escape the bottleneck position
  • Retention soars as students teach each other
