Educational Origami Wiki
by Andrew Churches
This is a MUST SEE wiki about 21st Century Learning and 21st Century Teaching. As the author himself says, "This is not just about the integration of technology into the classroom, though this is certainly a critical area. It is about shifting the entire paradigm of education. The world is not as simple as saying teachers are digital immigrants and students digital natives. We have to change how we teach, how we assess, what we teach, when we teach it, where we are teaching it, who we are teaching and with what. Its a tall order, but these are exciting times."
BE SURE to check out Churches' writing about Bloom's Digital Taxonomy.
