Are You a 21st Century Teacher?

We live in a rapidly changing world, one that is increasingly interconnected. While this century is an exciting one because of its fast-paced, technology-driven nature, it is also a challenging one. Our students who are young global citizens need to learn values and skills that will enable them to successfully communicate and collaborate across borders and cultures. As English teachers we are building skills for global communication, which includes digital, new media, and visual literacy because communication in English is inextricably linked to these 21st century literacies. This presentation will demonstrate ways to integrate specific 21st century skills to help our young learners succeed in this technology-driven and global century. Hopefully this presentation will inspire every teacher to be a true 21st century teacher.
