|Warm Up for Module 2|
Learners will determine the characteristics and learning needs of 21st Century learners.
Think about the students in your classroom, and about our younger generation in general. Create a list of ways they are different from young people in your generation. What skills to they possess that perhaps you did not possess at a young age? What are their expectations for school? What are their lives like outside of school? What are their expectations for their lives and careers?
Now review what you learned in Modules 1 and 2 and create a list of skills you consider important for your students to learn.
At the end of this module compare your lists to what you learn in this module. In what ways do they match what will learn in this module? What new thoughts and ideas emerged?
