In tandem with the Teacher's Conference 2019, ITE Library has curated a list of resources to support this special event! The guide is at https://ite-sg.libguides.com/FutureOfWork.
What does the guide entail?
Technological advances have created new and exciting tools that are not just useful for our daily lives, but also important in the classrooms. Pedagogy is no longer confined to lecturers flashing out lecture notes on the whiteboard in one-way communication. Smart Learning now involves the use of tools such as ‘Google Classroom’ and ‘Microsoft Teams’ in today's classrooms. Apart from enhancing lessons, how do such tools measure learners' performance? What kinds of analytics do these tools offer and how do educators gain insights from the data?
We have included resources on Digital Tools and Performance Analytics.
While traditional learning is conducted in classrooms, lecture halls or laboratories, some people prefer to learn while having hands-on training in an authentic (instead of simulated) work environment.
Research has shown that such a work-based learning (WBL) environment can inculcate relevant and task-oriented skills sets that students can use immediately upon graduation, usually with the companies that have hosted them before.
For mature learners, WBL can supplement traditional academic courses, and is suitable for those who wish to update their skills after gaining some work experience.
In the current age of digital transformation and lifelong learning, technological advances have made WBL more sophisticated and appealing, even to people who are used to traditional learning methods.
We have curated some resources on Work-Based Learning (WBL) and Assessment.
