I was reminded via Stephen Abram’s post Framework for 21st Century Learning about the Partnership for 21st Century Skills. I have a great list of resources that I plan to share and I forget which ones I haven’t and haven’t done. I could have sworn I’d blogged this but searching for it proves futile.

The Partnership for 21st Century Skills is

… a national  organization that advocates for 21st century readiness for every student. As the United States continues to compete in a global  economy that demands innovation, P21 and its members provide tools and resources to help the U.S. education system keep up by fusing the three Rs and four Cs (critical thinking and problem solving, communication, collaboration, and creativity and innovation). While leading districts and schools are already doing this, P21 advocates for local, state and federal policies that support this approach for every school. Learn more about the Partnership and the Framework for 21st Century Learning.

The site is full of great tools like

Partnership for 21st Century Skills: Teaching 21st Century Learners

[tweetmeme source=”librarianbyday” only_single=false]In this Pearson Foundation video, “Teaching Teachers to Teach 21st Century Learners,” we hear from various leaders from the worlds of business and education as they discuss the importance of 21st century learning.

This shift will be regarded as threatening by some, it will be viewed a hostile act by some but it will be absolutely necessary to include in order to make schools and education relevant to the future.

Society is going to force us to change, whether we want to or not, society is gonna force us to change.

Live March 17 Webinar Interview with Trilling and Fadel on 21st Century Skills

From Steve Hargadon of

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.
