Sometime I run into an article that says what’s on my mind better than I could ever say it. “10 Essential Characteristic of a 21st Century Educator” is just such an article. I especially like George Couros’ observation that “It is not technology that has the biggest influence on what we do; it is the speed of change being thrust upon us.” Mr Couros, the author of “The Innovator’s Mindset” goes on to list ten characteristics that he considers crucial for 21st Century educators. They are relationship builder, learner, inclusive, reflective, networked, innovator, leader, storyteller, designer, artist. “10 Essential Characteristics of a 21st Century Educator” This article is worth reading. Definitely food for thought.
