21st Century Learning is based on the philosophy of “It’s not what you know, but how or if you share what you know.” As I reviewed the NETS-S
provided by ISTE, it seemed that this Learning Target could be applied within each standard.
A review of the NETS-T
provided the impetus behind my point of view. I have, therefore, begun to consider my own classroom. My review identified some areas where communication can be applied directly to my core. My personal belief is that this puts an even greater demand on me as a teacher to ensure my students have appropriate learning opportunities. It becomes my responsibility to design lessons which will allow them to share what they have learned; in addition to ensuring their learning opportunities are meet the demands of a digital age.
I invite my fellow Classroom 2.0 Teachers to share their thoughts on how we can influence and assist other teachers we mentor as they incorporate 21st Century Skills into their lessons and activities.
