Model of Dialogue for 21st Century Teaching

7 Sep

Below is a video featuring Hooksett’s Technology Director Matt Woodrow and Candia’s Director of Pupil Services Nash Reddy.  Nash is a 6th grade teacher approaching Matt, posing as a building administrator.  The two individuals discuss a lesson Nash has created during a pre-observation, observation, and post observation.  The result demonstrates a realistic shift in a teacher’s practice and understanding of 21st Century Instruction.  Click this link (LearningAcademy_ModelLesson) for the files Nash prepares and presents to Matt throughout the video.  See the questions below for reflection.  Post answers and thoughts in the comments box below.

  • How do each of the headings of the unit differ from 20th Century to 21st Century (Concept, Objective, Assessment, Elements)?
  • Why is the revised heading considered “21st Century”?
  • What is the philosophical background to this change?  Why change?
  • How can you apply Nash’s learning to your lesson planning and your classroom?

    Love it! What a great way to illustrate for us some of ways a 21st c. lesson differs from a 20thc. lesson. It really clarified things for me.

    This clip was entertaining & raises some questions 🙂

    How would this look in a kindergarten, or primary, classroom? If the answers to our questions are in collaboration, how do those collaborating know they’re on the right track?

    I thoroughly enjpyed this skit- loved the humor linked with content! If Nash decides to leave teaching, as unfortunate as that would be, she surely has a career waiting iin theater! Thanks again, loved how you delivered your message! Maryann
