In 21 century school
Digital technology affords opportunities to move from traditional passive consumption learning to active approaches. These include online publisher content, engaging in conversation and developing content through iterative cycles of correction.
Such approaches form the basis of what I call the smart class, which is designed to support those who are teaching with technology.
The smart Classroom teaching approach is a common and compulsory act now! Over decade of research has produced the first Taxonomy of Thinking and Learning for 21st century classrooms. The smart class approach combines how modern students learn with the affordances of technology to maximize learning and the development of key 21st century thinking and activity skills.
I discussed in article that, “Staff must be taught to use the technology.” Only part of this is correct way “they must be taught how to teach with the technology”. If this is ignored, educational technology will enshrine the very system we were trying to change.
