In keeping with some of the principles of 21st Century Learning, the nature of this space is to connect those interested in learning more about the concepts, skills, and strategies for learning and teaching in the 21st Century.

It is meant to allow participants to collaborate in order to share, mentor, and foster personal and professional growth, and create new ideas, opinions and relationships.

21st Century Learning is about educators. Pedagogy - how we teach – must be influenced by an understanding of the “learning space” of now.

Please explore and share.
