"Educational Origami is a blog and a wiki, about 21st Century Teaching and Learning.
This wiki is not just about the integration of technology into the classroom, though this is certainly a critical area, it is about shifting our educational paradigm. The world is not as simple as saying teachers are digital immigrants and students digital natives. In fact, we know that exposure to technology changes the brains of those exposed to it. The longer and stronger the exposure and the more intense the emotions the use of the technology or its content evokes, the more profound the change. This technology is increasingly ubiquitous. We have to change how we teach, how we assess, what we teach, when we teach it, where we are teaching it, and with what.
Its a tall order, but these are exciting times."

Amy Burns's insight:

Bloom's by category, ICT sources, rubrics, Web 2.0 tools and a bit of everything in between.   Check out the starter sheets for tips on getting started with certain apps and programs.

I really like the message of this article.  To truly transform education, we need to stop relying on the  way things were/are and look to how it should be, and the participants----our children.
