21st century teaching
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, March 1, 2017 4:42 PM
My experience was that quite often we were just digitizing traditonal teaching. The challenge is to realize that and stop when it begins to happen. As well, it is challenging when people outside the classroom tell teachers this is what you have to do. I read a post today by someone who has not been in a classroom for several years and was not in one for long describing his innovatiion as providing more opportunity for classroom management. That is a major challenge when we are told by those outside the classroom this is what we have to do, but it is not grounded in real practice.
