  3. Session: Knowledge Construction
  4. Session: Use of ICT for Learning
  5. Session: Self-Regulation
  6. Session: Real-World Problem-Solving and Innovation
  7. Session: Skilled Communication
  8. Session: Reflection and Impact

Learning outcome:

  • Analyze and ‘code’ learning activities to see how deeply they integrate 21st century skills
  • Collaborate in designing new learning activities that provide deeper 21st century skills development
  • Examine the impact of these learning activities on students’ work
  • Use ICT as part of the learning process

This Office Mix presentation will look at assessment and lessonplans in two different LMS. As an “Advanced Networked Teacher” you can use ICT to assess students’ acquisition of knowledge, and to provide students with feedback on their progress using both formative and summative assessment. There is also a requirement to incorporate appropriate ICT activities into lesson plans.

You probably heard of the tale where group of blind men touch an elephant to learn what it is like. The moral is that while everyone is experiencing at the same thing, they don’t see the context.

The concept is adapted from Stephen Downes six domains of expertise in critical literacies consist:

  •  syntax – detecting and using forms, rules, operations, patterns and similarities
  •  semantics – sensing and referencing, interpreting, associating and deciding
  •  pragmatics – speaking, acting, expressing, declaring, asking, meaning, using
  • cognition – description, definition, argument, explanation
  • context – theorizing, framing, identifying possibilities, environment, reference space, ontologies and categorization
  • change – relation and connection, flow, historicity, directionality, progression, logic, games, scheduling, events and activities,
