Tip of the Week: What is 21st Century Teaching & Learning?: January 18, 2013


This week I thought I would share a couple of videos I often include in the online graduate courses I teach from time to time.  These are short, student/teacher created videos about the impact of technology in their respective worlds. I show these not solely for their entertainment value, but because they represent nicely the '21st Century" skills required by Common Core as well as state and national standards..

 “Every child in America needs to be ready for today’s and tomorrow’s world. A profound gap exists between the knowledge and skills most students learn in school and the knowledge and skills they need for success in their communities and workplaces. To successfully face rigorous higher education coursework, career challenges and a globally competitive workforce, U.S. schools must align classroom environments with real world environments by fusing the three Rs and four Cs.” (creativity, critical thinking, communication, collaboration)
