A growing number of voices within and outside the educational establishment are calling for an enhanced emphasis on “21st century skills.” This call for a focus on 21st century learning raises important and practical questions for educators:
  • How might we effectively infuse these skills into an already over-crowded curriculum?
  • What assessment practices are needed to assess 21st century skills in conjunction with academic standards?
  • What kind of teaching is needed to promote 21st century learning?
  • Which current educational practices and school structures are likely to support the attainment of 21st century learning outcomes, and which may inhibit it?

This session will present a practical framework for considering these questions and building a system to support 21st Century Learning.
