Becoming Wizards withe 21st Century Communication Skills
Urgent! Human beings needed with effective communication skills in order to translate inert, raw information into valuable knowledge useful and beneficial to others. No paper allowed!
It isn't about media-making - its about growing and mastering skills for attention power! For students to be effective communicators in the 21st century, sophisticated skills in expressing ideas with multiple communication technologies will be needed.
Even though writing skills still form a crucial foundation in developing digital media,
printed text has lost its monopoly to multimedia in the information age.
So how do paper-trained educators transform themselves into wizards at organizing and coaching content-based, student digital products that grab attention, mesmerize audiences with engagingly, rigorous content while purposefully impacting others long after? Using any of the dynamic media tools enabling new forms of communication beyond words will require practicing new literacies that master the grammar of reading/writing of images and sound as well as crafting information for impact. Building and communicating understanding isn’t improved by using the fancy, infamous bells and whistle features in myopic tools like PowerPoint. The new communication needs are less about mastering technical skills of technology than about being able to design information by artfully using sound, images, transitions and special effects in ways that dance ideas together into illuminated understandings.
