Your pedagogy must also change.
"... communication skills. Marshalling and understanding the available evidence isn't useful unless you can effectively communicate your conclusions." "... team players.

As educators focusing on 21st Century Learning, it is important that we are able to share examples of powerful student work that we can share with educators around the world. It is important that we have this opportunity to not only talk about how we can empower students, but as examples of how this has ALREADY affected student learning. The Motivation? This wiki was inspired (as many things are) by a student that did a phenomenal job on discussing her PLN that was shared numerous times on Twitter
This goes directly to our CIDC goal of improving writing. Many of these student blogs in the first section are great, easy examples of what a blog can be used for.
