#Peel21st Blog Hop – What Does 21st Century Learning Mean to Me

I’ve had the opportunity to connect with many #Peel21st educators and other members of my twitter PLN to discuss 21st century teaching and learning and what it means to us.  When the #Peel21st Blog Hop was presented I was excited to share as I missed out on the first round.  Read on to learn what I think about the meaning of 21st century learning and then check out the other blog posts listed at the bottom of my post.  

Happy Reading!

When @jrichea presented the #peel21st Blog Hop I was excited to participate. I was even more excited that the topic was 21st Century Learning and what it means to me. I’m having difficulty articulating it. Images of BYOD, Twitter, #geniushour and inquiry float around. While I certainly feel that those are elements to successful 21st Century learning I don’t think they define it. When I think about my own two children Keelyn and William I can’t help but hope for an education system that embraces their interests, quirks and nurtures their passions. That doesn’t make them feel self conscious or embarrassed when they don’t “fit in the box”.  That’s what 21st Century learning means to me.

A Fresh Start

You know what I did today?  I went to school.  I was reluctant.  I’ve moved into a new house that is big and beautiful but with 2 kids and many projects on the go it’s just not getting settled as quick as we had hoped.  I knew I had to go to school to set up but really I just wanted to stay home and work on the house.  It’s also one of those weird anxiety kind of things I have when it comes to situations like starting something new.  

Anyway I went to school today and it was great.  Chatted with a bunch of my colleagues set out the room in a great way that will really be conducive to using 21st Century Tech and tomorrow when I go to school I get to the the fun part of decorating 🙂  Thank you Pinterest 🙂
