educational-origami - 21st Century Pedagogy | Improving teaching at university | Scoop.it

Even if you have a 21st Century classroom(flexible and adaptable); even if you are a 21st Century teacher ; (an adaptor, a communicator, a leader and a learner, a visionary and a model, a collaborator and risk taker) even if your curriculum reflects the new paradigm and you have the facilities and resources that could enable 21st century learning – you will only be a 21st century teacher if how you teach changes as well.
Your pedagogy must also change.

I Have a Question. Why 21st Century Learning?

Today's students will face challenges we haven't imagined, take jobs yet to be invented, and toil in a workplace constantly reshaped by the exponential progress of technology. Only one thing is certain: classrooms designed for the industrial age won't prepare students for this dynamic era. A new century calls for a new paradigm. The sage on the stage must become the guide on the side.
