Learning in the 21st Century

Promoting better learning in the 21st century would be possible if educators made changes in the way they are currently teaching. As a classroom teacher, I know sometimes its hard adding new ideas or techniques to what already works for you. Change would involve more flexibility given to teachers by the school districts and less restrictions for the use and integration of social media and various other uses of the internet.
When students start learning because they are engaged in and are active participants in all they are learning anything is possible. Students must learn how to problem solve and work towards improving their efforts when collaboratively learning with others. This will require skills that are not only taught in the classroom but also life skills that are taught primarily at home from their parents or parent guardians.
