Are we really in the 21stC? Sometimes it doesn't feel like it. However I sense a return to cross-curricular work, process alongside content, inclusion & participation, respect & integrity for the learner and their work, critical enquiry methods and new excitment in how the new ever converging technolgies such as VLEs, hand held devices, social networking, Google map... can enhance our potential as teachers and learners.
Can you improve the potential for raising awareness by using tools/methods such as role play, simulation, mind mapping, concept mapping, Enquiry-based Learning (EBL), Circle Time, P4C Philosophy for Children, OSDE (Open Spaces for Dialogue and Enquiry), TOEproject (Learning to Read the World Through Other Eyes), World Cafe, lateral thinking, Gardner's 8 Intelligences .....?
