While student-centered learning is strongly encouraged in the 21st century, this does not mean that the teacher can never give a lecture again. Education is no longer about listening to the teacher, talk and absorbing the information. In order to contribute to society, students will need to be able to acquire new information as problem arise. They will not be able to call upon a teacher for answers, so will need to have “learned how to learn” on their own. In this classroom model, the teacher would act as a facilitator for the students.

Students should be encouraged to work together to discover information, piece it together, and construct meaning. Collaboration should also be dynamic.

The teacher can make a point of helping students to understand how the skills they are building can be applied in their lives. Students will be much more motivated to learn something that they can see the value in.
