What is a 21st Century Educator?

What is a 21st Century Educator?

By Roey Hilliard

Recently I wrote a blog about how Extraordinary Teachers Are Using Technology to Transform Education The natural progression of this blog was to examine who these extraordinary teachers are.

Teachers such as the one described in the blog are 21st century educators—professionals who have adapted to the technological transformation that has taken place in online learning. The dynamics of education are transforming via the Internet and ever-expanding technologies.

K¹² International Academy, one of the K¹² Inc.’s private online schools, has become a showcase for these technologically savvy and exceptional 21st century teachers.

Although an online teacher’s office may seem atypical to the status quo, the dynamics of education are transforming via the internet. These teachers are guiding students in their educational journey using the award-winning K¹² curriculum, flexible scheduling, individualized instruction, and dedicated support. Beyond the classroom, these teachers embrace social media and engage in positive community building for their school. From teaching blogging tips on how to begin a new school year, establish a routine, or how to sustain your sparkle, to liking the K¹² International Academy Facebook page and being rewarded with important announcements and invitations to live events.

K¹² International students have embraced and engaged in this 21st Century education methodology by sharing some of their favorite school projects on Instagram and participating in live virtual field trip chats (#icadvft) on Twitter.

Stay tuned–Next, we will examine these extraordinary students.
