14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools

14 things that are obsolete in 21st century schools | Smart Tech | Scoop.it

Saying that it has always been this way, doesn’t count as a legitimate justification to why it should stay that way. Teacher and administrators all over the world are doing amazing things, but some of the things we are still doing, despite all the new solutions, research and ideas out there is, to put it mildly, incredible.

Drawp for School: Unleashing Students' Creativity | Smart Tech | Scoop.it

Why Drawp? Students like to share their work and the ubiquity of tablets makes a new arena of creation and different needs for sharing. A drawing or project on an iPad can’t be sent home at the end of the day.

"Every day, your students are tested with each post, search chat, text message, file download and profile update. Do they connect with like minds or spill too much information? Do they behave creatively or borrow ideas recklessly? Do they respect relationships or inadvertently damage reputations?

 

Join us for Digital Citizenship Week and engage students, teachers and families in your community in thinking critically, behaving safely, and participating responsibly online. It’s a great way to celebrate Connected Educators Month, so dive into the suggested activities and resources."

If schools are going to do it, they should work on what that means in their community, their school, and their classrooms.
