21st Century Skills

Implementation Guide


Now that many schools are moving toward te 21st Century Skills, I'm puting together resources to help with the implementation.

OFFICIAL RESOURCES:
List of Publications:Take a look at:
  • the MILE Guides, these will definitely help you see where your school is located on the 21st Century Skills Rubric so that you can plan.
  • the 21st Century Skills Maps, these help integrate the 21st Century themes into the curriculum.
  • the ICT Literacy Maps, these help integrate technology into the core subject areas.


For me, these OFFICIAL RESOURCES provide agreat starting point. I, however, would like something more concrete and specific. This is why I have been working on the following resources.

NOTE

THESE ARE NOT THE OFFICIAL STANDARDS FOR 21st CENTURY SKILLS!

The purpose of theis project is to come up with similar documention for the REAL documentation.
I really would appreciate help in completing this project. Please drop me a email to request access and begin to collaborate.
