What should be the teachers digital toolkit for teaching in the Digital Age

Posted by jturner56 on January 19, 2014

In an age of increasing personalization, rates of change and choice it is difficult to set boundaries on what digital tools and understandings teachers need to be able to work. An interesting considerations is the OECD’s Skills Outlook 2013: First Results from the Survey of Adult Skills which identifies several competencies relating to

  • cooperation
  • communication
  • time organisation
  • information processing skills
  • technology skills

In schools the social element will also demand social media knowledge and interactions if citizenship is to be built productively.

Workers in all areas will increasingly be judged by not only what they know but also what they do with what they know. Schools like all organisations will be looking to create value not only in cognitive depth, but also in creating opportunities for the future.
