Educators Technology and 21 st Century S kills: Dispelling the Five M yths: a Study on the Connection B etween K to 12 technology and 21 st Century S kills

1. Administrators seemed to be more aware than the teachers of the term 21st century skills. 2. Teachers who were infrequent technology users did not place the most emphasis on the 21st century skills as frequent users do. 3. Majority of the administrators believe that their schools very strongly emphasized 21st century skills. 4. Administrators have somewhat stronger perceptions of the positive effects of the technology on student behaviors associated with 21st century skills and engagement in learning than teachers. 5. Administrators have somewhat stronger perceptions of the positive effects for students of the following skills :

Slide 4:

In problem –based learning (PBL), tutors play an essential role in facilitating and efficiently structuring tutorials to enable students to construct individual cognitive network and have a significant necessity of elaborate training to fulfill this complex role is undeniable. In the plethora of data on PBL, however, little attention has been paid to tutor training which promotes competence in the moderation of specific difficult situations commonly encountered in PBL tutorials Background

Slide 5:

Major interactive obstacles arising in PBL tutorials were identified from prior publications, Potential solutions were defined by an expert group. Video clips were produced addressing the tutor’s role and providing exemplary solutions. Trainees provided pre- and pre-intervention self-efficacy ratings regarding their PBl -related knowledge, skills, and attitudes, as well as their acceptance and the feasibility of integrating the video clips into PBL tutor-training. (all items: 100=completely agree, 0= don’t agree at all) Methods

Slide 6:

An interactive online tool for PBL tutor training was developed comprising 18 video clips highlighting difficult situations in PBL tutorials to encourage trainees to develop and formulate their own intervention strategies. In subsequent sequences, potential interventions were presented for the specific scenario, with a concluding discussion which addressed unresolved issues. The entire training , which comprised PBL self-experience and video clips as integral elements, improved tutors self-efficacy with respect to dealing with problematic situations. Results

Slide 7:

Conclusion The interactive tool with instructional video clips is designed to broaden the view of future PBL tutors in terms of recognizing specific obstacles to functional group dynamics and developing individual intervention strategies. The results shows that this tool is well accepted and can be successfully integrated into PBL tutor training.
