This article is all over twitter today.

Ultimately, these 21 things are the way that I would like to run my classroom someday. However, I’ve decided to take things one step at a time. Starting in January I plan to use a minimum of one new technology every week. Ultimately though, becoming this amazing 21st century teacher isn’t as easy as just using techology whenever you can.

There are schools out there that block youtube, administrators that don’t allow students to use ipods, their cellphones, or facebook in class. Some students can’t afford the internet or a computer at home. Being a 21st century teacher is harder than this list makes it seem!

We hear all the time about how the world is rapidly changing, and our students are different- but are we willing to take risks and change with them? Are we able to help those students who aren’t financially able to keep up with the newest technological trends?
