Educators, mount up!
October 25, 2010
“We as educators must become more literate ourselves in understanding the requirements of an increasingly technical and interconnected world. ” Well, said, Ms. Davis, in her recent Cool Cat Teacher blog.
In this post, Ms. Davis focuses on new and emerging modes of writing. Not only are 21st century learners writing traditional essays, they are blogging, posting, updating, collaborating in Google docs, Wikis, etc. Curriculum must and can expand to include these emergent and influential forms of writing. Therefore, it is first and foremost our challenge as educators to be abreast of these forms so that we are able to keep learners involved.
