"Successful learners have developed not only the skills of learning, but also the dispositions to use the skills." (p. 15)
There is a difference between students who learn in the 21st Century and students who are 21st Century learners, and there is a difference between SLMS's who teach in the 21st Century and SLMS's who are 21st Century teachers. To be a 21st Century teacher means that we are first and foremost 21st Century learners ourselves.
What dispositions do we need as SLMS's in order to be 21st Century teachers/learners, and is there one disposition that is more important than others? (According to the book, dispositions are "learning behaviors, attitudes, and habits of mind." p. 15)
