- (Trans) formation through educational technologies
- Keane, Therese; Blicblau, Aaron S.
- Historically, the 3Rs (reading, writing, and arithmetic) have laid the foundations for student life-skills, however, to function in the 21st century, students need to embrace the 4Cs (collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and communication). Teachers need to employ a variety of educational technologies, which embrace various aspects of the 3Rs and 4Cs in their practice. This work provides a framework for teachers to practically implement the 4Cs in a transformative space. Educators are then able to apply the 4CS through technology by implementing a transformative approach to their teaching. This mode of teaching prepares students with the necessary tools for the 21st century.
