Stop Talking…Start DOING!

Sticky TEACHing and LEARNing

#1 - Can a committee write a poem?

#2 - Why we need more “Committed Sardines”…

#3 - From Literacy to Fluency – 21st Century Fluencies, that is…

Best laid plans and all of that! However, I had to edit down Post #5 – and missed a very important bit of commentary from Andrew, Lee and Ian…

While it is not an easy shift, it is very rewarding - for both teachers and students.8 As the 21st-century learning environment revolves around real-world problems, teachers must transition to be crafters of these problems. A well-written scenario that connects real-world relevance to the learner, cultivates the 21st-century fluencies, and addresses curricular objectives sounds like a lot to ask for.
