Transcript of 21st Century Learners

Growing up, we can all remember
the teacher at the front of the classroom,
usually lecturing, as thoughts of lunch
& recess filled our minds. Imagine The next day, your teacher gave a lesson... But this time your teacher gave you choices
that let you work with others by collaborating,
communicating, critically thinking, and allowing
you to be as creative as you could be. Would you still prefer the traditional methods? Could it be possible that
you would've turned out
differently? Picture yourself back in grade school. Schools stop being buildings defined by walls & times of day; they transform into community "nerve centers." Walls become porous and transparent, and teachers & students become connected to the outside world, from the immediate surrounding community to people and knowledge across the planet. Teachers primary role will a dispenser of information to the orchestrator of learning and helping students turn information into knowledge, and knowledge into wisdom.

sage on the stage VS guide on the side http://www.21stcenturyschools.com http://www.21stcenturyschools.com Learners become excited by flexible, open ended, project based, real world learning situations, that not only teach content but instill curiosity (fundamental to lifelong learning), develop communication and teamwork sills, and instill within them, the freedom & responsibility that comes from taking charge of their own learning. This is truly the stuff that prepares them for real life. http://www.21stcenturyschools.com Incorporate the 5 C's (modeling is key)
Critical Thinking & Problem Solving
Creativity / Innovation
Digital Citizenship http://www.scilearn.com Not enough time to train on the technology my kids will be using
Teachers will have to spend more time planning
The technology will get ruined
Kids will be more off task than they are now
We will have more discipline issues
What happens when the technology doesn't work
Will we have enough money for upgrades
What if it all backfires I believe the first step in any good tech initiative is to
establish a culture for learning.
Organizing physical space in the classrooms to optimize the learning experience
Management of procedures
Management of student behavior
Showing mutual respect
Establish high expectations that are clearly & jointly laid out
Model what you want the students to be doing
Adapt, change, and conquer Analyze your learners
Social skills
Learning styles
Competencies & abilities Have clear objectives & goals that students can follow
Student centered (help established)
Outcome based
Select appropriate technology media & materials
(give them lots of choices)
Require learner participation (5C's)
Application (diversification, high expectations,
real world based
cross curricular
demonstrate understanding
effectively assess--teacher, individual, peer).
Reflect & perfect So, do teachers need to be masters
of the technology that students use?

I believe in most cases, no. Students
miraculously know more than you,
and do things with that technology
that you never thought of. So what should 21st century schools
look like? So..................

Set the stage & let go. Teachers role at this juncture is the guide on the side.
Be there for questions and promote self discovery.
Provide encouragement and hints, not answers.
Make them problem solve and collaborate with each other (both electronically and not).
Inspire creativity and innovation.
Challenge & push them to be better, to not accept the norm or the easy way out.

Let them show you, what they can do! http://www.edmodo.com Click for an example! How do you think your
students would react
with this new freedom? Did you stop to think, did my teachers do everything they could to prepare me for today? What should teachers do to become
21st century educators? Have you heard some of these worries
about incorporating
technology into classrooms? Or....

Did they throw out excuses
to resist change because that was
the way it has always been done?
