“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” ― W.B. Yeats
Much of my learning was focused on the creation of tools, technical skills, and technology resources. EdTech was only a for substitution, not for enhancement. I learned very little about the skills needed to support learners in a student-centered classroom.
The tools were cool, but I'm not sure I could name more than a handful that I used to complete my Masters. While the tools have faded, my learning and philosophy has continued to evolve.
- I've heard many a keynote speaker or read a blog post mention how important 21st Century Skills are for schools.
- On the flip side I often hear or read about teachers and students already being in the 21st Century so we need to stop talking about 21st Century Skills.
