Useful to - Teachers, Parents and older Students. Educational Origami is a blog and a wiki, about 21st Century Teaching and Learning as a whole. WHen considering how and where we get information and where the bulk of it is now available I thought it important to include this resource. It has a multitude of information on digital 21st century learners and ICT and Blooms Taxonomy and how it all ties together. 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.
