In a bit of a rut?
Need a change?
Perhaps it's time to look at educating students for the 21st century?
An excerpt on 21st Century Learning from the Ministry of Education website.
In 21stCentury Learning, students use educational technologies to apply knowledge to new situations, analyze information, collaborate, solve problems, and make decisions. Utilizing emerging technologies to provide expanded learning opportunities is critical to the success of future generations. Improved options and choice for students will help improve student completion and achievement.
This diagram might be more illuminating, but to make sure, ILC has invited a keynote speaker to address the topic of 21st Century Learning.
