21st Century Learning now, what will be in the future?

We are all aware that we are somehow depending on different technologies and digital devices. That is why even schools needs to adapt digital teaching, like students nowadays, if they want to learn something different like playing guitar or editing images and videos using Software. They just search it in Youtube, Google, etc. This is what the Department of Education from the students, that they can also learn with the use of technology and devices. And the thing is students are more advance in using these things than their teachers. And now teachers need to become more advance to go with the flow of the advancement of the world when it comes to learning.

21st century learning is we are now in different schools. Instead of applying the traditional way of teaching; chalk and board, instructional materials (made of colored papers, glue, markers, crayons), pen and paper assessments. We are now using digital images, videos as references and for singing songs, digital devices for assessments.

According from the reading ” What are the New Skills” by Henry Jenkins, that the “schools are bringing up new media literacies landscapes.” For me, this is where the students expand and learn new skills: “play-which they have capacity to experiment with one’s surroundings in a form of problem-solving, performance-they adopt alternative identities for the purpose of improvisation and discovery, simulation-the ability to interpret and construct dynamic

models of real-world process, appropriation-the ability to meaningfully sample and remix media content, multitasking– the ability to scan one’s environment and shift focus as needed to salient details, distributed cognition– the ability to interact meaningfully with tools that expand mental capacities, collective intelligence– the ability to pool knowledge and compare notes with others toward a common goal, judgment– the ability to evaluate the reliability and credibility of different information sources, transmedia navigation-the ability to follow the flow of stories and information across multiple modalities, networking– the ability to search for, synthesize, and disseminate information negotiation-the ability to travel across diverse communities, discerning and respecting multiple perspectives, and grasping and following alternative norms.” The mentioned new skills that can be or will be the outcome of the students because of 21st century learning where they become more productive in their learning that they can contribute to the community.

It is possible that our educational system will be change, because it is also possible that the Education will based from where the students excel and where the students will be convenient when it comes to learning. And in the future, though we are already in a digitalized citizenship, school and community will be more advance especially in systems in education, marketing, and etc. But still, as a parents and teachers, we must guide them on how to use and apply it in appropriate usage, and we should also be a good model to them on how we use technologies and digital devices in a good way.
