writting about bectax" to the expanding list of stuff I'll get around eventually, however, I wanted to strike while the iron was hot on one topic...
The purpose conference was described as:
BectaX will congregate the very best thinkers and doers from education, digital media and policy.
Together they will find pragmatic solutions to aid the transition towards 21st Century schools in a connected world.
As the various issues were discussed, a few people said that teacher education was important. As a teacher educator I agree but would like some idea of what people think initial teacher education can do to prepare teachers of the 21st Century to work with pupils of the 21st Century.
What are the key things that a student teacher should know, understand or be able to do, so that they are prepared to start working in 21st Century schools in a connected world?
And, to focus your mind, you are not allowed to suggest more than three!
