Most of the blogs I read have covered the story in Time Magazine's December 18th issue. "How to Build a Student for the 21st Century." Even though I read it online, I bought a print copy of the magazine to keep and to remind me of the content of this article in the coming months.
Certainly there are not enough Web sites that have readable content for young children. Is this because teachers of early grades are not creating them? I was interested enough in the Curriki Wiki mentioned in this article to put it at the top of my list to explore tomorrow.
At this time of year, it is hard to find time when you are a teacher to even know that Time magazine featured this article as most teachers struggle with teaching, their own education, aging parents and young children on a daily basis. It's hard to be a citizen of the world when you sit in traffic, worry about overspending and are asleep on the couch at 9PM.
