Reflections on 21st Century Education

Commentary by Stephen Downes

While our local newspaper can do no better than to recycle tired old talking points, it is refreshing to be able to find local blogs from the New Brunswick educational community talking about, and working with, 21st century educational practices. As one writer cites from Dave Warlick: "When teachers are released from district managed portals, and allowed to shape their own personal learning networks, when they are granted a voice and ear to a global conversation about education, when students begin to take a more active role in affecting the 'what' and 'how' of their own learning, then education changes, and the barriers between the 'classroom' and 'world' start to disappear."
