There is so much conversation about 21st century learning and learners. As a principal, I want to ensure that I empower my teacher with the opportunities that they can develop their skills in our schools to best meet the needs of students for both now and the future. How do I do this though? What are are the skills that I need to help my teachers access in the future, and what skills do I need as a principal. Unfortunately, many seem to associate “technology integration” with 21st Century skills, but this is only a component.
So instead of writing a post about it, I would love to hear your thoughts? It would be great to share this resource with others on what skills educators will need in the classroom.
Here is what I am asking for:
- Share what you do as an educator (administrator, librarian, teacher, or other role) and age group you work with.
- Share where you are from (this may show that there are different skills by region, ie. Are Canada and the United States looking to empower their educators with different skills?)
- Your thoughts on the skills that we need to ensure that educators have in the future to best meet the needs of the students we serve.
I would love to put all of your ideas together and summarize in a post in the future, but this blog is not only about sharing my thoughts; it is also about learning from others.
Please share your thoughts.
