21st Centery Classrooms

24 04 2010

I really enjoy Dr. David Rose’s approach to teaching in the 21st century listen to his ideas in this video.


A few quotes from the video I totally agree with:

“Get students to ask for help, get teachers to ask for help!”

“Create choices for students in how they want to learn a skill – let them choose their own content”

“Tight Goals, Loose Means” is what technology can provide us in the classroom.

“The thing that makes the brain learn is passion, according to cognitive science¬† you can not separate reason from emotion and have learning occur.”

I found this video on this really excellent blog for teachers – Cool Cat Teacher – created by Vicki A. Davis.
