Teachers are hearing the terms “21st Century Classroom” and “21st Century Learning” a lot during trainings and within resources. Teachers need to understand what these terms mean in order to fully grasp the concepts behind them.
A “21st Century Classroom” and a “21st Century Learner” go together. Learners/students come into our classrooms with more technology skills than ever before. School districts need to… Continue

The idea of teaching with video games is an exciting concept leading to a challenging practice.
Right off the bat the topic is a bit polarizing, the whimsical connotation of “games” juxtaposing harshly with the rigorous tones of classical academia. But past that,… Continue

Location! Location! Location!
What Does Location, Location, Location Mean?
It means identical homes can increase or decrease in value due to location. It's repeated three times for emphasis, and so you will remember the phrase. It's the number one rule in real estate, and it's often the most overlooked rule. The best locations are those in… Continue

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,… Continue

In class today we watched Ken Robinson's "Bring on the Revolution" on TED
in which he calls for a revolution in education. He suggests that we need not reform a broken, outmoded system, but rather we must fundamentally change what we do to/with kids. The metaphor Robinson uses is a shift from an industrial model (factory-like, all kids learn the same things at the same age levels, in preparation for 'university') and move to an agricultural model, where… Continue

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…

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.… Continue

This post is a commentary on the future of Computer Labs as well as a "cry" for your input on what you believe a 21st Century C-Lab should look like. This will also become the first in a series of posts regarding a major transformation both physically and philosophically within our school. We are remodeling our school. I am going to re-purpose and re-structure our lab. I am not 100% confident that I am going in the right direction...this is a bit of a risk. You're input here would be of great… Continue

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?

The concept of Technology Literacy became immediately relevant for me last year as I was filling out the 2008-09 ADE Educational Technology Survey required for our district to receive funding under the Title II-D/EETT program. I had to answer the following questions:

"Technology literacy is the ability to responsibly use… Continue

21st Century learning is the process whereby digital natives utilize the power of modern technology to learn anything, anytime, anywhere. Classrooms are no longer… Continue
