This Article is a Breath of Fresh Air from eSchool News

After my quasi-rant yesterday and my beleaguered comment on jenuinetech about my edtech frustrations I feel vindicated by this eschool news article. YES!

Report: Reinvent schools for digital age
21st-century learning environments must break through the barriers that separate learning from the real world, P21 says

Educators can’t truly deliver 21st-century instruction in schools that reflect Industrial-Age designs, with rigid schedules, inflexible facilities, and fixed boundaries between grades, disciplines, and classrooms, according to a new white paper from the Partnership for 21st Century Skills (P21).

Sponsored by Cisco Systems, the paper–titled “21st Century Learning Environments”–describes the kinds of school structures that have been shown to facilitate successful 21st-century teaching and learning: from flexible learning spaces that can be rearranged to fit different class sizes and subjects, to more malleable units of time than the typical 50-minute class period.

Brick and mortar buildings aren’t the only way to educate students, says this new report.
