    • We need to prepare students for THEIR future not OURpast.
      --Ian Jukes, educator and Futurist
    • “Due to rapidly changing dynamics facing the 21st Century, new skills, regardless of what they are called will be needed for every man, woman and child to address the economic, social, political and citizenship challenges that await them…

    • So how do we prepare our students for their future?
    • Strategy # 1: Let them create
    • My 5th graders created videos to help solve math story problems, illustrate their personal narrative writing, and present projects.
    • Teachers need to stop saying, “Hand it in,” and start saying “Publish It.”
      --Alan November
    • Strategy #2: Let them collaborate
    • Students created an online wiki about the Loyalists vs. the Patriots going to war to gain American independence.
    • The debate continued on our classroom blog.
    • Strategy #3: Let them communicate
    • Students made podcasts with Voicethread to present a research or group project and to share their stories.
    • Digital Media enables us to build more stages for our kids to express themselves.
      -- Marco Torres
    • We need to replicate in the classroom the world in which students are living.
    • We have to move from know what learning to
      know where learning.
    • Are your students ready for their future?
      They will be if you let them create, collaborate, and communicate with technology in your classroom!
