Rethinking Teaching in the 21st Century

Our think tank in CEP812 has been reexamining just what it means to be a teacher in the 21st century. More specifically, we have been exploring options for helping students gain the skills necessary to succeed in this new, globally-networked millennium. It is a wicked problem to be sure with multiple stakeholders potentially pulling in opposite directions. But we believe we have found, as they might describe it in the movie, “Argo,” the “best-worst solution” to this most wicked problem. You can learn more about our proposal here.

As ever, comments are both welcome and encouraged.

  1. Awesome topic for 21st century teaching! I really like all the research your group put into this. Your multimedia aspect is awesome, it’s great that you were able to put so much of your google hangout in the video. Your visual representation is a little hard to follow. What are you trying to represent? Is there a way you can include a title on it to help describe what you are showing in your infographic? I am using my iPad to view this, so it might be better on a computer, but the font is also hard to read. Again it may be the small screen, but you guys might want to look at it again! I like that you stated constraints and opportunities. It allowed me to have a deeper understanding and truly think about your topic.

  2. Hi, Brianna. Your comments and questions are quite helpful. The visual is still in a draft stage, but I had the same question about it, “What exactly are we trying to show here?” We’ll keep working on it until we get it nailed down! Thanks for the input.
