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 essential
  • Engage in exciting, meaningful, global collaboration
  • Conduct real world research
  • Connect to nature: Global awareness
And I would add, to see languages as essential. We need a 21st century perspective.

Jeff,
“What does it look like,” you ask...well here is what I think.

For businesses..it looks lucrative.
For technology leaders..it looks exciting.
For teachers...it looks daunting.
For site administrators...it looks distracting.
For IT managers...it looks challenging.
For district level administrators...it looks dangerous.
For parents...it looks like nothing they have ever seen before.
For students...it looks inconsistent.
For me...it looks impossible.
So lets get to work!

That’s my 2¢...where’s my change!

Think Global School is using the very principles mentioned as our guide for building curriculum. When you use global collaboration, address real world problems, integrate experiential learning as a core to learning and make the arts essential - planning and developing curriculum takes on a whole new perspective.
