Today, we have facing a digital revolution, or I might say an educational evolution. Our ways of communication are different from those who use had to use some years ago, our children are fortunate to handle a whole new world about information. Different devices offer them the possibility of knowing whatever they like in a minute. Years ago, we needed to memorize contents from text books in order to be acquainted to different topics, now they have those contents in their hands with just a "click". Schools and teachers need to move in the same direction.
But, are schools and teachers learning how to engage students in classrooms if they do not apply modern and interactive methods? How a child who is used to play with a "kinect" at home is able to concentrate or pay attention to long lectures or long reading in a classrom?
The web today is full of apps and social media resources to help teachers transform their classrooms in a real education center, where all those constructive activities recommended to increase motivation can be applied.
Creativity is the main ingredient in designing a XXI Century class. We, as teachers have new resources, new ways to make our students to learn not only contents but how to handle them, and most important how to share them towards their own benefit and for mankind.
