This week I have found myself pondering/wondering the best way to teach 21st century skills to students.. How does one go about introducing the true concept of online collaboration through blogging and social networking to 7th grade students?
My students will create their own blog sites next week via Mahara.. Should I give them guided discussion topics?? How does a teacher go about teaching 7th graders that the world is flat. I have looked at many excerpts from The World if Flat by Thomas Friedman but have not been able to see how to incorporate it into my curriculum. I quess I am asking for a starting point if anyone has any ideas??
