What does 21st Century Learning in an International Context mean for my classroom?
I think the biggest take-away from looking at everyone's ideas about what 21st Century Learning in an International Context means for my future classroom is that everything is and should be student-centered. With this said, taking into consideration student's learning styles, their hobbies, what they enjoy, their culture, etc. and apply that to the curriculum is important for students to become really engaged in learning. Also, another theme is the involvement of collaboration with the community. I think that as an educator, knowing the community and the resources out there is important as well as involving the community. This not only enhances a student's range of knowledge, but it allows for networking and allows for the community to be aware of what is going on in the local schools.
