Learning in the 21st Century

A list of videos discussing the importance of using technology to cater to students learning in the 21st Century.

Engage Me!

Love this video, specifically because it was made creatively by students. This would definitely be a great conversation starter to convince other teachers to use technology. The students are stating how they would like to be engaged and even used a little humor. Wonderful video, it definitely motivated me to begin flipping my classroom!

A Vision of K-12 Students Today

I enjoyed this video because it was student led. Students are stating what they do on a weekly basis and how they enjoy using technology. This basically reminded me of a commercial and students are trying to convince teachers to let them creatively use technology. This would be a great tool for all teachers to view.

This was a great video. I really like the intro, very engaging. Therefore it would be a great conversation starter. I love the comparisons students have written about traditional learning versus technology. Very informative and entertaining video.

I enjoyed this video because it not only stated statistics but it gave suggestions on how to improve. It was very motivational and informative. This can be used as a great conversation starter to encourage teachers to help students reach their fullest potential.

21st Century Literacy

I like the fact that this video defines 21st century literacy and the benefits of it right away. Stating statistics are also a good way to encourage teachers to use technology. I enjoyed this video.

Pay Attention - Final Cut

I like this video, because from the beginning it holds teachers accountable for student learning. The fact that statistics are stated will make this video be a great conversation starter.

Teaching the 21st Century Learner

I liked the video because it plainly states that traditional teaching methods have become outdated. This is very important because some teachers have not faced reality, but this video did not sugar coat that statement. This would be a great conversation starter because it encourages teachers to allow students to openly use technology in the classroom.

This video was very informative. It discussed the learning and tools students need for the 21st century. It could be used as a conversation starter but I would have enjoyed it more if it were a little more exciting.

21st Century Learning Matters

This video was beneficial in stating reasons that students need to be exposed to technology. It also states what skills students need to know to be successful in the 21st century. Overall, this is a great video, but not as engaging as others.
