Suggested discussion topics/activities for the 24th:
1. How digital media in a networked and mobile world can build on and promote the OECD Core competencies.
In February 2006
with support from
organised a Practical Imagination Symposium exploring learning and education in the digital age along with plans for constructive action. The symposium was focused on how digital media may be able to assist in promoting the
set down by the Ministers of Education from the OECD nations. In particular we looked at the
5 core competencies
that are being promoted into the NZ curriculum.It would be great if the group could build and develop on these discussions.
