Educational Origami is a blog , and a wiki, about 21st Century Learning and 21st Century Teaching. This is not just about the integration of technology into the classroom, though this is certainly a critical area. It is about shifting the entire paradigm of education. The world is not as simple as saying teachers are digital immigrants and students digital natives. We have to change how we teach, how we assess, what we teach, when we teach it, where we are teaching it, who we are teaching and with what. Its a tall order, but these are exciting times ... This site will give you a heads-up and support to do what needs to be done in order to prepare our students for opportunities that we don't even know exist yet and develop the skills that we're not quite sure about. - but we have to try to arm the leaders of tomorrow with the skills and tools of tomorrow. This site is fundamentally sound with its pedagogical, cognitive, ICT, methodology, and implementation of good teaching preactices. Go to this site - you won't regret it. Undeniably, one of the best sites on my blog!!
