21st Century Curriculum?

Discussion in 'English' started by rayellis, Mar 8, 2011.

  1. Hi everyone.
    I'm posting this on behalf of the TES English Teaching group, where we're hoping to collate and share examples of new pedagogies and technologies that you feel are becoming embedded in your classes.
    Are your students making regular use of, for example, iPods to enhance their speaking and listening or content creation? Is there a particular application, programme or device that you turn to regularly as a normal part of your classroom practice? Have you discovered ways to take advantage of the technologies pupils are bringing into schools e.g. mobile phones?
    Our aims are to map out where 21st Century Learning and the Creative Curriculum are intersecting and to provide a focal point for the sharing of this practice amongst English/Language Arts teachers.
    Although part of this might involve sharing particular resources, apps etc, we are equally interested in just sharing experiences: how practicable are these methods within school environments, what are the implications for e-safety, how do pupils respond? Similarly, what are the implications for CPD, budget etc? Most importantly, we want to know what you think the future holds for English teaching: what will our teachers and learners be doing ten years from now? How do you hope to see English develop?
    Hopefully we can use the forum to draw upon a range of experiences and start to develop a map of current practice and a route towards future pedagogies that we can collate and share although, given the nature of the topic, perhaps it will evolve into something different and unexpected.
    Finally, we are not asking for contributions solely from the technically proficient: if you are not making use of the opportunities afforded by new technologies, what are the barriers in your way? What are the resources, ideas and encouragements that you need?
