Tech Transformation: Rethinking how students learn

Tech Transformation: Rethinking how students learn | Technology in the 1st Grade Reading Class | Scoop.it

I've started reading a new book in the past couple of days and already I have so many new things to think about! The book is entitled 21st Century Skills - Rethinking How Students Learn and is edited by James Bellanca and Ron Brandt. In the preface to the book Ron Brandt explains why a focus on skills is so important. He writes "effective teaching involves students using skills to acquire knowledge" and explains how important it is that these skill are embedded into the curriculum and taught along with content.
