We used to live in a world where four walls could contain our students. This is no longer the case.
If we are not letting our students connect with the world, then we are doing them an injustice.
Students go home every day and connect with the world, creating content for the world, sharing their expertise with the world, and being engaged by the world.
Yet, in many classrooms, we are still trying to contain our students within their four walls.
In fact, in many classrooms, we try to limit the connections that students can make.
If we are not connecting and engaging students, they may be able to learn more on their own.
It’s time that we break down the fourth wall.
Give students opportunity.
Connect them with the world.
Break down the fourth wall.
