Skyping Hub- Learning Hub I know…I see motivation in their eyes… I feel excitement in the air…I hear them say: “How cool”, “That was awesome” or “When are we skyping again?”.I know… all about the different skills students are exposed to and are practicing while skyping.I know… that I am helping them learn differently than from a textbook.I know… that I am preparing them for a work environment where they are expected to collaborate with colleagues and teams who do not live in the same country, nor continent and operate in a different time zone.I know… that I am exposing them to a world, people and cultures beyond their horizon.I know… that I am broadening their perspectives, tolerance and for someone who is different Around The World with 80 Schools

But teachers are more than this The 21st Century teacher is an adaptor. Harnessed as we are to an assessment focused education model the 21st Century Educator must be able to adapt the curriculum and the requirements to teach to the curriculum in imaginative ways.
Submitted by: Kris Nielsen - Middle Level Specialist from North Carolina I watched my students take a math test the other day. It was one of those tests that seems to take the entire 70-minute block. Some finished early, others took the entire time, a few tended to need another day.

Re-Inventing the Wheel in the Study of Human Character Date posted: April 2, 2014 James Heckman, Nobel Prize winning economist, has just published a 435 page collection called The Myth of Achievement Tests. On the surface it is a well-documented critique of the GED (General Educational Development) examination.
