  • Why are tools for the “Digital Classroom” seen first and foremost as a method for delivering content? While there are some elements of the 4 “C”s of 21st century skills in this poster, it is a distictly backward-looking approach that doesn’t seem to be able to get beyond the concept of textbooks, whether printed or digitally distributed. Honestly, today’s digital educator needs to be far, far more ambitious.
