Transform Old Lectures to New Gems for 21C Learners

Michael Gorman gives us 10 steps to transform old lectures for 21C learners. Make sure you are up to date with at least some 21C teaching skills.

It is important to look at successful prior lessons and infuse these past successes with technology and 21st century skills. I often refer to this in my Jukebox to iPod presentation. When looking at this transformation it is obvious that technology made a past great idea even better. Teachers must realize that they have a vault of awesome activities that have proven to be successful with students. Many times these perennial gems can be reinvented, mixed, and transformed to bring about a new 21st century lesson that will be even more engaging and applicable to today’s digital learner.
