Social Media Belongs in the Classroom

Social Media Belongs in the Classroom | The 21st century classroom | Scoop.it

Teachers who resist using social media in the classroom are stripping their students of an essential component of their future success. Avoiding – or worse, banning – social media platforms for students prohibits them from being successful professionals in fields like accounting, chemistry, the arts and more.

This Time It's Personal

This Time It's Personal | The 21st century classroom | Scoop.it

We are beginnning to realize on a wide scale that the responsibility for learning definitely belongs with the learner, with the modern educator playing the role of guide and nurturer. But we're also realizing at the same time that this can't be truly effective without the right balance of technology integrated into that learning. Read on for more in this Journal article by Jennifer Demski.

"Truly student-centered learning has a lot of support in high places in education, but it can’t happen without the right technology infrastructure to drive it."

Shift Your Classroom: Small Strategic Steps | Powerful Learning Practice

Shift Your Classroom: Small Strategic Steps | Powerful Learning Practice | The 21st century classroom | Scoop.it

"I’ve come to describe my shifted classroom as an inquiry-driven, project-based, tech-embedded environment. But that’s not where I started. For most of my teaching career, I’ve been a pretty traditional teacher (even now I slip back into that mode sometimes).....

My shift to a student-centred classroom has been a roller coaster ride, but well worth the work and effort. For the most part, my students are engaged and have started to take responsibility for their education. We view knowledge as a process, not a product. I think the most valuable skill my students have acquired is the ability to learn, unlearn, and re-learn. Given today’s constantly changing world, this is one of the most important things they’ll take with them when they graduate.

Teachers who are interested in shifting their classrooms often don’t know where to start. It can be overwhelming, frightening, and even discouraging, especially when no one else around you seems to think the system is broken. The question I’ve been asked often throughout the past year is “Where should a teacher begin?” I’ve reflected on this a fair amount, and I think small strategic steps are the key...."
