Industrial Age Education System

  • Common pace and type of instruction
  • Time is constant; achievment is variable
  • End of course or year assessments
  • Teacher centered
  • School based, fixed place and time
  • Printed static text as main resources
  • Informal learning disconnected
  • 3R’s focused

Digital Age Education System

  • Individualized, variable pace learning
  • Achievement is constant, time is variable
  • Ongoing assessments embedded in learning
  • Student centered
  • Anywhere, anytime
  • Digital, interacted, up-to-date resources
  • Informal learning integrated
  • 3 R’s new literacies and 4 C’s focused
