Teaching in the 21st Century

Recent technological advances are affecting the way we communicate, collaborate, learn, and teach. These advances necessitated the creation of terms like “digital natives,” “digital immigrants,” and my favorite, “21st-century teachers.”

Teaching in the 21st century has become a phenomenon. Never before could learning happen anywhere and anytime. But one question remains, “What does it take to become a 21st-century teacher?”

I think a 21st-century teacher should maintain a learner-centered classroom. He/She should treat students as producers and learn to use new technologies. He/She should learn from everyone anywhere in the world. He/She should strive to become a digital native by becoming a lifelong learner. He/She is always on the lookout for the new and quickly adopts the latest trends and technologies to enhance his/her profession.
