Dr. Punya Mishra

The issue of what our students need to know has been receiving a great deal of recent attention—mostly under the auspices of 21st century learning. There is a feeling of distinct disjuncture between centuries past and the one into which we are now emerging, and that the educational demands of this new century require new ways of thinking and learning. In this presentation Dr. Mishra will offer a critical review of the literature on 21st century knowledge frameworks with a particular emphasis on what it means for educators. He will offer an argument for rethinking the role of technology and creativity in the pedagogical process and offer examples from his current research.
