The 21st Century Teacher is “wired”



  • Abundance of resources and relationships are easily accessible via the Internet.

  • Education paradigms are shifting to include online learning, hybrid learning, and collaborative models.

  • There is a new emphasis in the classroom on more challenge-based and active learning.



  • People expect to be able to work, learn, and study whenever and wherever they want to.

  • The technologies we use are increasingly cloud-based and expectations of IT decentralized support.

  • The world of work is increasingly collaborative, driving changes in the structure of student projects.



  • Economic pressures and new models of education competing with the traditional models of education.

  • Digital media literacy continues its rise in importance.

  • Institutional barriers present major challenges to moving forward with emerging technologies.



  • The prevailing methods of instruction impede the most effective application of technology

  • Don’t know how to make new technologies transform teaching

  • Instructional workload

  • Often too much emphasis on the technology itself and lack of support for teachers



  • Lack of clear direction, sustained commitment, and financial incentives needed

  • Merely providing tools is unlikely to provide a significant increase in effective use of technology in instruction
