Thank you to Andrea Hernandez for the image of the classroom schedule that inspired me to put the following visual of the Evolution of the Classroom Schedule together.
No Pencil Class> Computer Class> 21st Century Learning > Learning
It will take classroom teachers, who understand that “21st Century Learning” cannot be equaled to “using computers, iPads, web 2.0 tools or other technology gadgets and tools” at a set time during their schedule , to make the shift how we think about learning. We are all learners. We need to be life long, anytime and anywhere learners. Learning in the 21st century is amplified through the uses of available tools and resources and will not be confined to a specific time block during the day out of convenience of sticking to an arbitrary schedule.
