“Los analfabetos del siglo 21 no serán aquellos que no saben leer y escribir, sino aquellos que no pueden aprender, desaprender y reaprender” – Alvin Toffler

“The illiterate of the 21st century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn, and relearn”

What a powerful, inspiring concept! As teachers, we’ve been used to transferring skills and knowledge to learners and to testing their knowledge with exams at the end of each unit or course. But learning goes beyond that and it has no boundaries. We’re more interconnected than ever before. We’re sharing, collaborating, inspiring one another. Everyday I find powerful messages, blog entries and articles in Twitter and LinkedIn that inspire me to keep searching for ways to reach students. We have the chance to learn from our own practices, from others, to select what works best and to change what doesn’t, to experiment with new ideas, to improve and get better every day.

That’s learning, unlearning and relearning. We’re doing it. How can we encourage students to do it as well?
