After a successful #peel21st blog hop in September, a few of us decided to take another stab at it. We hear the term 21st Century learning often but what does it mean to each of us. Don’t forget to hop over and see the other blog posts listed at the end.
In trying to define 21st century learning, it seems so much has changed and then at times nothing has changed.
Nothing has changed: Learning is learning. Relationships are still essential. Play and discovery still draw in the young and old. Real world experiences help learners transfer from the classroom to the big wide world.
Everything has changed: The list of digital inventions continues to grow. Information at our fingertips. Limitless ways to contribute to a global understanding.
With the passion of educators of the past and new digital tools of today, learning in the 21st century is continual, empowering and exciting.
John Seely Brown and Douglas Thomas said it much better than I can:
