New Video Resources21st Century Learning Highlights

From the Maker’s Club to the Classroom
This video offers a glimpse into how an elementary science class made connections to learning that occurred in an extra-curricular “Makers’ Club” that allowed for student ideas to fuel the direction of their learning and in turn influence their classroom learning. It also highlights the importance of community support in helping students deepen and see the relevance of their learning.

Cultivating a Learning Environment
Educators discuss assessment for learning as they integrate more opportunities for students to benefit from technology-enabled learning. The shift in practice not only allows students to have more choice in how they consolidate their learning, but also greater advocacy to determine their next steps. The teacher’s role is to “create an environment in which all students feel valued and confident and have the courage to take risks and make mistakes.”

Changing Practices
Educators share insights about how their practice is changing as they intentionally incorporate technology to enable and support students in attaining learning goals. Some teachers have been using the SAMR model to encourage their students to become digital “creators of content”. These educators also speak about how students become more reflective thinkers when they have opportunities to turn and talk and engage in purposeful conversations with their peers.
