So, what does it all mean? (21st century education)
It means that global citizenship is now a reality. Students are living and learning in a technological world. To take advantage of the opportunities this world provides them, we teachers have to prepare them to be internationally competent, because otherwise they will be left behind if we don’t organize our education with a global context in mind. We must integrate international knowledge and new technologies in our regular language courses so that our students are ready to face the challenges of an even more technological and global future society.
There is a big issue that modern education and we educators face now: learners are getting more and more used to learning using technology in their lives. If we want to keep up with them and the way they prefer to learn, we must make important changes in the way we teach.
