Without question, we are all learning and teaching in an information rich society (Bawden, 2012., Wesch, M. 2009). Not limited to the young ‘digital natives’ “We are all the Google generation, the young and old, the professor and the student and the teacher and the child” (Bawden, 2012).
The change from an industrial to technical paradigm in society and the workforce has made the teaching of 21st Century Skills essential (Zhao 2013., UNESCO 2015). The use of 21st century skills features strongly at St Luke’s through the ‘Pillars’.
As we have become more proficient with the use of the Pillars at St Luke’s we are able to delve deeper into understanding the requirements of the Australian General Capabilities. One which often raises questions is the ICT Capabilities Continuum.
In an effort to understand this further, and as part of my uni course (Masters of Education, Knowledge Networks and Digital Innovation) I have put together some examples to help us understand this more deeply. The website is in two parts.
I hope someone finds it useful!
