Digital Learning Ranked Videos

Here is a list of videos that I have ranked for my Digital Learning course.

21st Century Learning Matters

"21st Century Learning Matters" - "21st Century Learning Matters" provides an introduction and conversation starter for considering the transformations needed in education. I especially liked the last line where we must all be a learner and teacher in this new era of education.

21st Century Literacy

An introduction to 21st century literacy. This video was short, but to the point on what 21st century literacy is. We not only have to learn how to read non-print/print, but we must be able to communicate to a larger audience than ever before.

21st Century Skills: What Do We Do?

In a world changing faster than the technology that fuels it, education too must change. We know our students need skills to be competitive in the 21st century, but what do we do to get them there. We need to teach them skills through the content. They need to understand that all information and skills are important in the 21st Century.

A Vision of Students Today

A short video summarizing some of the most important characteristics of students today - how they learn, what they need to learn, their goals, hopes, dreams, what their lives will be like, and what kinds of changes they will experience in their lifetime.

A Vision of K-12 Students Today

This project was created to inspire teachers to use technology in engaging ways to help students develop higher level thinking skills. Equally important, it serves to motivate district level leaders to provide teachers with the tools and training to do so. We must change the way things are NOW.

Engage Me!

Pupils from Robin Hood primary school, Birmingham, worked with a film crew from the National College for School Leadership to express their desire to use their favourite technologies for learning in school. The videos with actual students with them inspire me the most.

Rethinking Learning: The 21st Century Learner | MacArthur Foundation

From cell phone and video games to Facebook and YouTube, digital media are changing the way young people play and socialize in the 21st century. In order for us to teach the 21st century learner, we must become one ourselves.

Teaching the 21st Century Learner

Video about the need to change pedagogy to meet the needs and expectations of 21st century learners. While this video had good information, it seemed to only show images and play a song.

Pay Attention - Final Final Cut

We need to PAY ATTENTION to our students. Instead of ignoring the growing use of technology in the classroom, we need to embrace it. There is a wide variety of tools at our disposal, we just need to ask our students what way they learn best.
