The Paradigm Shift: 4 Goals Of 21st Century Learning

The Paradigm Shift: 4 Goals Of 21st Century Learning | Technology | Scoop.it

"As academic standards shift, technology evolves, and student habits change, schools are being forced to consider new ways of framing curriculum and engaging students in the classroom, and project-based learning is among the most successful and powerful of these possibilities.

 

As both a planning and a learning tool, project-based learning challenges teachers to make new decisions about how they plan student learning experiences, while simultaneously empowering students to take a more active role in the learning process."

Schools and educators can't keep up. So many are still using technology tools like glorifed projectors instead of pushing the envelope and using tools to teach critical thinking.

Karen Taylor's curator insight, November 6, 2013 6:37 PM

American schools are way ahead of the crowd in terms of education reform. I'd like to see a similar paradigm shift in Jamaican classrooms. Empowering students to be active participants in their own learning is a winning model. TeachThought rocks!
