The 3 Cs of the 21st century classroom

teaching and learningUsed to be reading, writing and ‘rithmetic. Used to be teaching and testing too. That was the teacher authoring knowledge, content and the classroom. Technology allows us a more fluid approach because the world is changing rapidly , content is shared and created constantly and the devices and formats we use are changing on a regular basis. We are in the technology growth phase and so we have to learn, share and adapt. There would have been a stage in history where you could know everything there was to know about your world. Not now. Gadgets are multifaceted, computers can do so much, the whole world is at our disposal if we want to connect. The planet is sharing information and then recreating information with that new input. Yes, 2+2 still equals 4 but the number of ways you can now teach, show ,share and know that information is increasing everyday. You learn as you are passing it forward. You learn as you are trying to learn something else. You learn because someone sends something your way. We are all teaching and learning when we are connected. It doesn’t mean you don’t stop and really delve into knowledge in a deep and meaningful way. So our world is now constructed on comprehension, content creation and communication. We have to understand what we are sharing. We have to curate ideas, links, images, web content, presentations… We have to work with others to establish engagement and connections and then we have to communicate that information. Curation is becoming increasingly important as we sort the chaff from the wheat on the Net and in terms of tools and techniques suitable for teaching and learning. It’s neither lock step nor stop and start. Those were the cogs of the industrial era. It’s all fluid movement now. We now have constant teaching and learning pathways which we can connect, disconnect, reconnect as the need arises.
