From Steve Hargadon of LearnCentral.org:
Join me for a live and interactive interview in Elluminate with Bernie Trilling and Charles Fadel. In 21st Century Skills, Trilling and Fadel tell why and how the global landscape for learning is reshaping itself, and what this global transformation, often called the “21st century skills movement,” may bring to a school near you. 21st Century content includes the basic core subjects of reading, writing, and arithmetic-but also emphasizes global awareness, financial/economic literacy, and health issues. The skills fall into three categories: learning and innovations skills; digital literacy skills; and life and career skills. Based on a framework developed by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills, their book and DVD vividly illustrate the skills needed to survive and thrive in a complex and connected world.
