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.

The 21 Signs you are A 21st Century Teacher

The 21 Signs you are A 21st Century Teacher | E-Learning, Instructional Design, and Online Teaching | Scoop.it

Teaching in the 21st century is definitely not an easy task. Students are digitally focused and have more free access to information challenging thus the traditional prototypic picture of the teacher as the knowledge instigator. Engagement is also another serious issue that makes educating such kind of students a real nightmare. It takes so much creativity, originality, and novelty from the part of teachers to get students motivated and engaged.

The Smithsonian has been committed to supporting the work of educators with teaching resources since 1900 when we began distributing “school sets” of specimens. Today, our online database of digital learning resources contains nearly two thousand items created by Smithsonian educators aided by teachers, with guidance and review by our curators and researchers. Prestigious and influential educational organizations recommend these resources to teachers, and they have won awards for excellence.
