Teaching in the 4th Information Age

Teaching in the 4th Information Age | Contemporary Literacies -- Sometimes referred to as "21st Century Skills!" | Scoop.it

I’m a much different teacher than I was when I started. For example, I used to do these 4 things consistently that I won’t do this year:

 

I won’t give a classroom lecture.
I won’t write notes on a board or in a PowerPoint that I expect students to copy verbatim.
I won’t assign homework.
I won’t give a multiple-choice exam.


How can I be a history teacher?
