Are the so called 21st century buzz words a cliche or yet another fad? Or are we in the middle of a learning revolution?
We are into the second decade of this “21st century” that seems to be part of labels for everything in education these days. What does it mean to be literate in 2014? What will being educated mean for the class of 2027? Is traditional reading and writing enough?

Let’s look at some of these terms, their implication for our schools, and examples of educators who have embraced “new forms” of teaching and learning.
Learn how you can look past the semantics and work towards preparing your teachers and students for a changed world.

Speaking Up and Down Vs. Sideways

I don’t translate, nor wonder what comes first...the verb or the noun? I know how to respond to something unexpected. I am comfortable and not terrified. I can relate, communicate and connect with others. I know that a language is the sum of words, common history and traditions. It feels intuitive, unconscious and smooth. Language Fluency
