I've learned through my four years at Brock that student's deserve choice in their classroom. Students should feel that they have their own freedom in education, and we must promote this as teachers. I have been following Tom Amico-- A superintendent for the OCSB Board. He has posted this article that provides ways in which we can do this for our students within the 21st century.
I have been following George Couros since the beginning of the year. He is a Division Principal of Innovative Teaching and Learning in Edmonton, This is a twitter post which he posted a blog about Literacy. He explains that Literacy is both a "comprehending and creative" process.
