Abstract

This study discusses, showcases, and identifies key characteristics of a model 21st century classroom within the context of a middle school English/Language Arts learning environment. Guided by contemporary instructional design principles, constructivist learning theory, and current K-12 educational technology trends, this unique 21st century English/Language Arts classroom illustrates the importance of transitioning from traditional technology integration to transformative technology integration among K-12 educators and technology leaders. Qualitative data collected during the 2009-2010 school year reveals that access and use of technology and accommodating to various learning style preferences are common characteristic to the 21st century learning environment. Student work, particularly engaging classroom projects that utilized Web 2.0 applications, will be showcased and discussed among conference participants.
