  • 51. So what? • Networked learning: You must be open to at least letting your kids drive the technology use in your classrooms. Be willing to engage them in the ways that they learn best. • Generational diversity: Change is not going to happen without schools working as teams to examine at longitudinal goals. • 21st century skills: The art of teaching comes through via the weaving of 21st century themes into core content. You need to provide guidance and be thoughtful when designing classroom activities. • Learning environments: Just as we’ve looked at the whole child, we need to start emphasizing the whole learning environment. Personalized learning for both students and teachers is important. 50Thursday, November 3, 2011
