Twenty-first century education won’t be defined by any new technology. It won’t be defined by 1:1 laptop programs or tech-intensive projects. Twenty-first century education will, however, be defined by a fundamental shift in what we are teaching—a shift towards learner-centered education and creating creative thinkers. Today’s world is no longer content with students who can simply apply the knowledge they learned in school: our generation will be asked to think and operate in ways that traditional education has not, and can not, prepare us for.So, students in Mrs. Smith's and Mrs. Moritz's classes, is Anthony right? (Make sure you read the entire post.) You probably want to comment on his post or, of course, you're welcome to comment here. (Or both!)
