The vision of 21st century students

This video really challenges me as a teacher:




The video made me realize that current K-12 students live in technology era. Thus, the usage of technology to enhance communication, creativity, collaboration, and media literacy of students are very important for their future careers. In Indonesia, especially in urban areas, children are growing up with technology. Technology are part of their daily lives. Television,…

21st Century Education is Happening: What does it look like?

The video posted on this page on 21st Century Learning suggests requirements that neither make all schools the same, nor require we drop everything we do. But it does suggest a framework for renewal. We need to:
  • Use a project/problem based curriculum and experiential learning
  • Have students address real world problems
  • Nurture and support creativity
  • Instill curiosity -- lifelong
  • See the arts as…

Radical Ideas at Work in Education: A Response

Today I was accused of being a 'lazy teacher'. Amused, bemused, I asked why. The response, "I walked past your classroom today and your students were just busy talking to one another and you weren't lecturing them. It looked like you were doing nothing." I felt rather thrilled at the characterization.…

Looking to communicate regarding 21st Century Learners from other countries

Hello all:



My name is Justin Fox, and I am a Mathematics and Computer Science teacher at the Bronx HS of Science in Bronx, NY. I was wondering if I could ask a few questions regarding your experiences teaching students, as well as your students who are 21st century learners that are considered "Millenials" (also known as Generation Y). In particular, I have the following questions:



1) What grade level/age range do you teach?

2) What subject areas do you teach?

3)… Continue

21st Century Literacies and Schools of Education

This is a topic that has been on my mind for several years but after spending some time with a new teacher over the Christmas break has pushed me to the point that I need to put my thoughts somewhere even if no one reads it.



What are universities doing to make sure that their teacher candidates are prepared to use and teach their students to use technology? Apparently not much. Case in point: my nephew's wife has been teaching in California under a provisional/temporary teaching… Continue

Personal philosophy of education

Educators have a challenge we have never faced before… prepare students to be able to find solutions for problems that don’t even exist yet. Prepare them to be able to use technologies that are changing and evolving exponentially every day.
