What is 21st century education?


And are you ready?

I know this is old news! And we have talked about it before. But this video is worth watching anyway! Perhaps to share with your staff? Or how about starting the school year by showing this to your students? Let them discuss the following; what are the implications, and what needs to change in our classroom? If I am a 21st century teacher, will you be a 21st century student?

Our world is changing at an unprecedented pace. To prepare our students, lessons must go beyond the “3 R’s” and foster 21st century skills. Skills like critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity will be essential for students to take on the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead”. Source: Smithsonian.
