What is 21st Century Teaching?

Microsoft has just released its Innovative Teaching Learning (ITL) research tool (10th Jan 2011) and made it available to all schools. See http://www.pilsr.com/. The software giant can see that providing devices and applications is only part of the equation. Teacher practice has to change.

I have cut and paste some of the questions from their research tool into this document because it goes a long way to defining what 21st Century teaching looks like. It also throws up questions and challenges about leadership, infrastructure and professional development. I would love to see what you think.
