I believe the 21st century education is idiosyncratic in nature. It has acquired some distinctive features that sets it apart from the kind of traditional education that was prevalent in the 20th century. Of course it does not take you long to guess the reason behind this change , digital revolution has and is still radically transforming the way learning and instruction is delivered.
Even inside this technology itself there is another deep revolution going on, we no longer talk about computers ( laptops and desktops ) as being the main vehicle of the 'technologized' ( term borrowed from New Literacies: Everyday Practices and Classroom Learning
) instruction inside schools but there is also the emergence of mobile devices such as smart phones and tablets , and they are gaining more ground in the educational sector. Some school districts in the United States and Canada, for example, have already adopted the BEYOD and 1:1 initiatives and others are flipping their classrooms creating ,thus ,a totally novel mode of education. Yes mobile learning is a trending topic but there are several other kinds of learning that have emerged in parallel with mobile learning.
