Why 21st century education is not just about technology

Why 21st century education is not just about technology | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"Our district, like many others, has been having lots of conversations about '21st Century Education' and what it means for us. There are many books and articles written on the subject, but I think the big picture tends to get lost in the discussion, particularly at the local level. When one speaks of '21st Century Learning,' many people just assume it means adding iPads or other technology into the classroom. It’s much more than that, and actually speaks to a complete rethinking of the very structure of schooling."

How Technology Changed My Social Studies Classroom | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"One of the greatest experiences I have had in teaching World History is to create a blended-learning class that is based on using technology with thematic learning, in-class activities, and world projects.
