Module Three: Task 2- Teaching Technology
Project Based Learning aids teachers in assisting students to develop a diverse range of critical 21st century skills. These skills include collaboration, communication, and critical thinking. It can be perceived that 21st century work place is very mobile and educating leaders need to make changes in building the skills needed by utilising enabling technologies and personalising learning to engage students in different and creative ways. For example, in South Korea digital textbooks have been implemented which allows students to study conveniently to their schedule. In Denmark, students are permitted to utilise the internet whilst undertaking an exam. In Australia, distant learning programs allows students in remote areas with online learning communities and personal mentors to rediscover their love for learning. We need to make it a priority that future workers, parents and citizens are more creative problem solvers, better communicators and lifelong learners.
