As I sit over a lengthy edit of a post of student examples of recent eminent person projects, I was glad to find this November Learning video on Wesley Fryer’s blog. Alan walks around Marblehead, Ma, and speaks about the necessity of engaging the world in a collaborative, networked existence, citing examples of classrooms able to employ Global Researchers, Communicators, Tool Builders, and Internal Collaborators as places of today’s most relevent learning. “As we move from an environment where the teacher-is-boss,” Alan says near the conclusion, To one where the students, or workers, are collaboratores, self-directed, self-motivated and lifelong learners, we are creating a learning environment which directly mirrors the demands of the 21st century workplace.
