21:21 - Aligning 21st Century Learning with 21st Century Learners

"It is our responsibility as parents and educators to shift the fundamental principles upon which we educate our children for their future and beyond. There is an urgency in the air in every country around the world and it's time we ACT" -- Patrick Newell
21:21 is a documentary film produced by 21 Foundation to highlight the urgent need for the adoption of 21st century learning methods. In the film, which was shot in schools in 9 countries, Learning Activist and 21 Foundation founder Patrick Newell highlights the problems with traditional teaching techniques, before introducing a number of fundamental elements of 21st century leaning - and demonstrating the positive effect that they have upon learners from all backgrounds.
Very interesting, worth watching.
