  • 95. So what? 21st century Skills: The art of teaching comes through via the weaving of 21st century themes into core content. Focus on inquiry and the thoughtful use of technology in classrooms. It is not all about the tools. Learning Environments: There has been an emphasis on educating the whole child. Shift the discussion to address the whole learning environment. Personalized learning for both students and teachers is important. Global Collaborations: It’s so easy to connect classrooms today. It’s essential that we bring the world into our classrooms and inspire students with the possibilities. This is where you apply the tools!
