Discussions Discussion Models for Education in the 21st Century
Reese Turlington, Oct. 29, 2011

Digital media a regular part of life for many children. According to a national study by Common Sense Media, digital media has become “a regular part of the media diet” of children ages zero to 8 years old.

Infants and toddlers are spending twice as much time with screen media as they are with books, a report says. This is surely going to have an effect on education very soon. Books in the classroom will disappear. And that’s a good thing in my book :)

    Not only the US but the entire world needs a paradigm shift - more workers/employees turning into entrepreneurs. It will reduce dependency on jobs, better utilisation of economic resources, smarter investments and greater use of innovative technology in design, manufacture and delivery of products and services.

While schools have not changed a ton in the past 100 years, parents and families have. Here’s an article about a school that has managed to involve even the most difficult to reach parents in their children’s education.

Megan McCausland, May 12, 2011

This teacher says his game-based classroom is the reason his third grade students’ skills have gone from below third grade level to mid-fourth grade level in four months.

    That's amazing! So many teachers don't understand that learning does not have to be a bore. I believe that kids of all ages can learn while having fun. Learning is suppose to be exciting, but unfortunately that idea has become lost over the years. I know this costs money, but hopefully we can incorporate some of these ideas all over the world. We need to get children to see that learning is fun.
