I found thisinfographic today discussing the Digital Promise. While I’m fairly ambivalent about the role of the DoE in this type of initiative, I’m quite certain that the concepts within the graphic are quite relevant. There is a huge need to step out of the box of traditional pedagogy and instruction and move forward to enabling students to think critically, collaborate effectively, problem solve, and communicate. These are not four new concepts, but the way we engage students in the learning process to enable these skills is of utmost importance. I’m going to step off my soapbox now and allow the infographic to speak for itself.
What are you doing to engage in the Digital Promise?
