Apologies for the late posting of this month's blog topics! Here they are.
Promoting 21st Century Skills is one of the professional practices in the British Council’s new Continuing Professional Development (CPD) framework. But what exactly are 21st Century skills and are they the same as digital literacies?
In two recent articles written by Gavin Dudeney, he explores the four key digital literacies: focus on connections, on language, on information and on (re)design. He also looks at the distinction between these and 21st century skills.
For this month’s blog topics, we focus on this topic.
You'll firstly need to read Gavin’s articles:
After you've read these articles, you can choose one of the two topics below:
- How do you currently incorporate a focus on one or more of these four literacies in your classes.
- Thinking about one or more of your groups of students, write about an activity or set of activities that could be used to focus on one of the four digital literacies.
Your post could be a reflection, or be in the form of a lesson plan or short practical activity.
