Did You Know/Shift Happens

At Keystone Elementary, we will continue a discussion on 21st Century learning begun on an August in-service day. We will view Karl Fisch's video, "Did You Know/Shift Happens" and then pose a few questions as conversation starters.

Dr. Scott McLeod, in his "Dangerously Irrelevant" blog, asks this key question: Given the realities of our modern age and the demands of our children's future, is it really OK to allow teachers to choose whether or not they incorporate modern technologies into their instruction?"

Do we need to change? How do we get from here to there? What challenges must we overcome?

We invite your comments.

  1. I think that at Keystone we are introducing the student's to technology at an appropriate pace. I think that the teachers are providing appropriate levels of tech at the right grade levels. We have to remember that the children need the basics first.
