Learning in the 21st Century: What does it mean to you?

I had been anxiously awaiting another #peel21st Blog Hop when Jason @jrichea put out the call “tweet”.  Topic, “Learning in the 21st Century: What does it mean to you?”  in 100 words or less.  “Not a problem”, I said.  And so, I left it at that and the week passed quickly and so did the weekend.  And earlier today, as I was working with the Grade 3’s @CountrysidePDSB my mind began to wander into “blogland”.  Ideas, and thoughts floated about my head like a child excited to see the Christmas catalogues arrive in the mail. And…my thoughts about “Learning in the 21st Century”:

  • Knowledge at our fingertips
  • The 6C’s
  • More powerful technologies in our hands, apps, web tools and more
  • An understanding that learning in the 21st Century and beyond is much different than what we have experienced in the past.  A focus on ideas, creativity, connectedness, risk taking and problem solving.
  • The following, TedTalk
