21st Century Education

I came across this presentation about 21st Century Education in New Brunswick, Canada. It's very well done and worth a look.

Haven't had time to try this one out yet but it looks interesting.

Read, Write, Read, Vote, Read, Write Again! One of Boomwriter's guest authors writes the first chapter of a story. Then Boomwriters are invited to create the next chapter. The chapters are submitted by Boomwriters from around the world and then they are voted on. The winning chapter gets published!

Boomwriter is 100% free for schools.

I think this could actually get students motivated with the degree of competition involved.
And it obviously gets students to practice both reading and writing skills.
