21st century learners are pleading with their schools to integrate technology into their classrooms.
Yo! Teach! Are you for real? You think you can reach these kids with your direct instruction and pre-packaged projects? Man, you old school...
This is a remix so we can fix the current situation in our education system
Unable to connect with the kids plugging in to the internet.
"We want to be composing, creating rather than listen to your explicating."
Students must be allowed to work in the cloud and not be resigned to being assigned projects,
But rather be part of refining, finding answers to questions of their own designing.
This regurgitation of information is never gonna lead to any innovation.
If you wanna teach me, then you gotta reach me.
And to those who wanna teach me, welcome to the 21st century.
All this busywork that you require will fail to inspire these kids to inquire
And think for themselves in the world we leave them.
"We want to create!" Why won't you believe them?
So now we are poised to teach with the tools and all of the toys
That our students are yearning to include in their learning
To keep their passions to burning.
Digitize, not memorize!
