21st Century Skills into practice!

Each student should be well prepared for the future. ICT skills play a special role in education. If it is thought to learning in the 21st century this is directly linked to the 21st Century Skills. Students today must grow up with the 21st Century Skills. A student can decide how the student performs the work and whether or not the student shares information. The student can take responsibility for any learning process. The purpose of Simulise is to create a knowledge / learning environment in line with the development of each individual student. The deployment of the 21st Century Skills in conjunction with a social collaboration module will encourage the individual results of each student. The traditional way of teaching is this way ‘innovative’ furnished. In practice Simulise works with 21st Century Skills in several ways, for example:

  • Assigning badges (a skill), both virtual (controlled system) and physical (manual assignment).
  • Gamification; levels achieved within a game in the knowledge environment to be able to achieve the established skills according to the curriculum.

The memory of each student must be accessed efficiently. Compare it to a pinball machine. Pupils achieve high score(s) when they are frequently in contact with the ball and keep it in the ‘game’. The working memory of pupils lies in the combination between stimulating ‘doctrine hits’ (appeal, motivating, monitoring), and the thing that should be learned and repeated often offered varied.

The long-term memory has knowledge stored in the form of network combinations of features. If we need a particular concept, then a feature is activated from the network. The order in which then the other characteristics of the network are to be activated is determined by the thickness of the connection between the features: the thicker the compound, the faster activated to the associated attribute.

Creating links between knowledge and expertise is essential to achieve long-term memory. This can be realized by pupils together to create, innovate and share knowledge and expertise within the community, in conjunction with social media. Within the community is continually looked at the activity of each individual student. Questions such as: Who am I? Where did I come from? What I want to achieve? are continuously answered by Simulise. Based on these questions, we provide students with the appropriate educational content that is applicable to them in the learning process.

Effective deployment of the 21st Century Skills (in practice) is achieved through social media within a community where learning, sharing each other’s knowledge and expertise is central.
