The Shifting to 21st Century Thinking project has been established by a group of researchers and thinkers within the New Zealand Council for Educational Research.
The group thinks deeply about education in the 21st century, and what needs to change. The group thinks that too many of our educational practices remain the same as 50 years ago, and wants to see a shift to 21st century ideas and practices.
It aims to explore the shift to 21st century thinking and learning by connecting theory with educational practice from the perspectives of people actually involved in the educational profession around the world. The intention is to help educators build a bridge between 20th century theories and practices, and 21st century theories and practices.
The website is a space for theory and practice to interact, for theory to inform practice, and practice to inform theory.
