The 21 Signs you are A 21st Century Teacher

The 21 Signs you are A 21st Century Teacher | ICT in our schools | Scoop.it

Not to suggest that we're out of touch if we don't engage in these in ways but they would suggest that there are plenty of creative ways to evolve our skill set. Teaching in the 21st century is definitely not an easy task. Students are digitally focused and have more free access to information challenging thus the traditional prototypic picture of the teacher as the knowledge instigator. Engagement is also another serious issue that makes educating such kind of students a real nightmare. It takes so much creativity, originality, and novelty from the part of teachers to get students motivated and engaged.
