Interesting Article from Edutopia

Redefining the Role of the Teacher: It's a Multi-faceted Profession is a great read I stumbled across this week. Reading through one line resonated strongly with me.

"Students aren't consumers of facts. They are active creators of knowledge" (Para 3).

The quote reinforces for me, the importance of incorporating the 4C's into student learning daily, helping students engage more deeply with and to take an ownership role of their learning.
