Part 1 21st Century Teaching & Learning
“… today’s students, of almost any age, are far ahead of their teachers in computer literacy. They prefer to access subject information on the Internet, where it is more abundant, more accessible and more up-to-date.” National Technology Plan, 2005
“ The kind of questioning, collaborative, active, lateral rather than hierarchical pedagogy that participatory media both forces and enables is not the kind of change that takes places quickly or at all in public schools.” Howard Rheingold, author Smart Mobs
Internet Use by Adults vs. Teens Pew Internet & American Life Project, 2003
“ What changes must we make in our teaching as it becomes easier to bring primary resources to our students?
How do we need to rethink our ideas of literacy when we must prepare our students to become not only readers and writers, but editors and collaborators and publishers as well?
What needs to change about our curriculum when our students have the ability to reach far beyond our classroom walls?
How can we as learners begin to take advantage of the opportunities these tools present, so we may understand more clearly the pedagogies of using them in the classroom?”
Will Richardson, author of Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts, and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms
