This will be a great and exciting year for all of us.

I have been asked to be a contributor to this blog, with my work on social media interaction within the classroom. The Blog will discuss some of the current issues around 21st Century learning and the use of technology within the classroom. This will be a great resource for not only parents but teachers as well.

This is a very interesting video showing how education needs to be changed to meet the needs of the 21st century learner in a rapidly changing information age. There are some surprising statistics in this video that will make you wonder where are we going next? How do we prepare students for a world that does not exist yet? How to prepare students to use technology that has not been invented yet or prepare them for jobs that have not been created yet? 

21st Century Learning

 

From cell phone and video games to Facebook and YouTube, digital media are changing the way young people play and socialize in the 21st century. A great video created by the MacArthur Foundation showing the diversity and changing social patterns of todays students and how the way they learn is changing.
