Innovation achieved by  applying special education approaches to all learners.  Makes me wish common sense was common practice!--Lou

 

Excerpt: 

"Enriching the School Community

Leslie Buford's curator insight, May 28, 2013 10:27 AM

Each child is special, all students are special, and therefore shouldn't all education be special?  It's sad that the common usage of the term Special Education has stigmatized the label., and exciting to see evidence of a school striving to serve each of its unique students.

The ability to adapt and the ability to encourage one's students to do the same.

Jane Sowter-Maranion's curator insight, May 23, 2013 7:12 PM

Being a 21st Century educator is creating a learning environment that is social, collaborative and project based. Teachers, nor anyone else for that matter, will ever be able to keep up with all new technologies. The trick is to focus on digital technologies that facilitate student collaboration.

Michael MacNeil's comment, May 28, 2013 10:23 AM
What makes 21 st Century learning so interesting is the rapid rate of thechnological change. Who knows what new learning tools will arrive on the scene tomorrow.
