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.
