What does 21st century learning look like in an elementary school? - The Cornerstone

What does 21st century learning look like in an elementary school? - The Cornerstone | All Things Elementary... Math | Scoop.it

"That’s the question that was posed to me this week by the faculty at a wonderful school on Manhattan’s upper east side in preparation for some upcoming PD work. I think it’s an outstanding question that’s worth reflecting on in-depth as we all start to think about what our goals and direction are for the next school year. What does 21st century learning look like? is an essential question and overarching topic that I hope to come back to again and again as I think about what works in real classrooms."


Via John Evans
