The 21st Century Classroom encourages creativity and innovation, communication and collaboration, critical thinking and problem solving, and the development of strong research skills. In today's digital classrooms, students must understand cultural and societal issues and demonstrate ethical behavior. Students must have a sound understanding of technology use and operations.
1. THE VISION
-Technology does not engage students; great lessons engage students
-Technology should only be used when it increases efficiency and/or effectiveness
2. THE FRAMEWORK
-Instructional technology expectations must be driven by instructional experts
-Technology services must be aligned with instructional goals and district needs
3. THE STRATEGY
-Resistance to change occurs only when barriers are present
-The most effective way to encourage change is by eliminating those barriers (Moroder, 2014)
