2011: We are in the second decade of the 21st century.
Teachers, schools and districts are moving from discussing how to prepare students for 21st Century skills towards doing.
- Doing means connecting learning in our classrooms to peers, experts, people & cultures, ideas, knowledge, resources and perspectives from around the world.
- Doing means connecting learning to essential skills, such as collaborating, communicating and creating.
- Doing means to go beyond basic literacy to include information, media, network, intercultural and ethical literacies.
- Doing means taking advantage of technology tools that allow students and professionals to create personal learning networks.
- Doing means being able to use these tools to integrate and connect them to curriculum content.
- Doing includes opening the classroom walls to a world that previously only existed on pages of a book.
