Creativity and Innovation
Communication and Collaboration
Research and Information Fluency
Critical Thinking, Problem Solving and Decision Making
Technology and Operation Concepts
In order to address these skills in the classroom, I will need to design lessons which integrate digital tools such as wikis, blogs, social networking, power point, Microsoft Photo Story 3, etc. to support curriculum concepts and develop a community of self-directed learners. Incorporating problem-based lessons that are based on real life concepts, will create motivated, engaged learners who are fluent in 21st century literacy skills. I am committed to creating an environment that will support student motivation as self-directed learners.
