The Nuts & Bolts of 21st Century Teaching-a review

I recently read an article on 21st Century teaching from a teacher standpoint. Shelley Wright posted about her class project on the Holocaust. She wrote about empowering her students by taking a step back from teaching. This led the students to “drive” the project on their own as a group. They collaborated together to design the classroom set up and figure out what the basis of the project will be. I thought that she used a great example of how she did this in the classroom. I enjoyed reading some of the ideas that her students came up with. I think that this really made them think outside the box and work together to create the main idea. Shelley also introduced several technologies in the classroom including, Delicious, Google Docs, and she blogged. I think that because the children saw the usefulness of these technologies, they were inspired to branch out and find new technology. For example, a collage maker. Click here to read the post!
