The 21st Century Classroom

Looking forward to joining a group of teachers this week to explore teaching in the 21st Century Classroom.

"The illiterates of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn" - Alvin Toffler

Topics to review and presentation link

Sites to review

  1. The P21 Framework presents a holistic view of 21st century teaching and learning that combines a discrete focus on 21st century student outcomes (a blending of specific skills, content knowledge, expertise and literacies) with innovative support systems to help students master the multi-dimensional abilities required of them in the 21st century along with the  P21 CommonCore Toolkit
  2. The 21st Century Fluency Project A collaborative initiative created to develop exceptional educational resources to assist in transforming learning to be relevant to life in the 21st century.  The 21st Century Fluency Project is all about change. In today's world we face technological applications in daily living the likes of which, even a few short years ago, would have been inconceivable.
