The term digital natives is used to describe the new generation of students that has grown up with mobile devices, internet and technology in every aspect of their lives.
Just putting devices in the hands of our students and expecting them to suddenly know how to be 21st Century learners is not enough. We must create a learning environment where students use technology ubiquitously to solve real world problems that link to communities locally and globally. For our student's to prosper in the new work paradigm they must be independent life long learners, who are creative, versatile and adaptable.
In response to these challenges, education systems across the world are changing teaching and learning practices to prepare our students for the new world order.
The Killara BYOD Learning Hub has been created as a blended approach to learning which builds students "soft skills" through collaboration and enabling them to regulate their own learning. This will be a space for the whole Killara community to improve technology skills, celebrate innovative teaching and learning approaches and preparing our students for success in our technological society.
