Cool Tools for the 21st Century Classroom

Infographic of the Week: Morphing into a 21st Century Teacher

June29

Yep, we’re all familiar with these terms: 21st Century teacher, 21st Century skills or 21st Century something. In fact, they have been some of the most prevalent buzz words in education as of late. But what is 21st Century teaching? And better yet—how does one create a 21st Century learning environment?

Well, contrary to popular belief, a 21st Century education is not all about web tools, apps and devices. Sure, technology plays a key role, but there are other core competencies in addition to reading, writing and arithmetic that are essential if students are going to thrive in today’s world: critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, communication and of course, digital literacy. In a true 21st Century setting, teachers are facilitators, guides, and co-investigators while students are producers, apprentices, and co-explorers.

That said, are you ready to morph into or become an even better 21st Century educator? Then check out this nifty chart containing over two dozen ways to engage your students in the learning process.

Be sure to use the embedded Zoom.it tools to zero in on the details.
