Are you a 21st Century Teacher?

Do you encourage collaboration? Are you a risk-taker and early-adopter? A life-long learner? Does this sound like your classroom?

1.     You ask your students to do a historical person study… and they create mock social media profiles for their person.
2.     Your students create a study guide…working together on a group wiki.
3.     You visit the Louvre with your students… and never leave the classroom.
4.     You share your lesson plans with your teacher friends… from around the globe.
5.     You prepare subsitutes with detailed directions… via podcasts.
6.     You are reading this!

Whether you consider yourself a technology “beginner” or a tech-savvy leader, we would love to hear from you. How are you integrating technology in your classroom? What activities have you created to encourage 21st century skills? Please post a comment and share your ideas.

  1. I'm utilizing Classroom collaborization with my senior English students. They are sharing their outside reading recommendations, as well as identifying an author's use of imagery.
