Okay, I'll be the one who meanders down the less travelled "road not taken". While I don't like the term 21st Century teacher, learner, classroom, I also believe there are a whole lot of people who don't seem to get that a monumental shift has occurred and we're still creating learning environments that look like they did 20 years ago. Oh sure, we might be tacking on some shiny new technology but in essence, we continue to teach as we have for so many years. So for me, using the term 21st fill-in-the-blank signals a need to SHIFT our current teaching and learning paradigms in big, big ways...that it's not optional...that in fact, it is absolutely our responsibility to do so. This goes far beyond simply having students start glogging or blogging...it's about a complete change in how we view learning. So despite the fact that several folks have chastised me for using the term 21st Century fill-in-the-blank and despite the fact that I, too, hate the phrase, I will continue to use it (sometimes with an accompanying apology) until we start creating learning experiences that reflect the fact that we are indeed in the year 2013.
