21st Century Learning: Starting a Conversation

This is a set of videos that are intended to spark conversation on 21st Century Learning

Pay Attention

This is my top choice for sparking a conversation about 21st century learners. It states several important facts about today's learners and then asks probing questions about what we are doing to engage this student in today's educational system.

Engage Me!

A great video of students holding up a variety of signs to explain what they like to do and how they learn. They are asking the viewer (educators) to engage them with the tools they like.

This video shows students holding up questions and information for educators to see. They are pointing out that learners want to be engaged and have different needs than previous learners.

Teaching the 21st Century Learner

This video is about the need to change pedagogy to meet the needs of the 21st century learner. I did not rank it very high due to the lack of any real useful information. Music and pictures were great but there was almost no content.

21st Century Learning Matters

This video consists of interviews of several people on their opinions of the 21st century learner and what we as educators need to do to improve learning.
