For a visual representation of the Framework, you can visit the Partnership for 21st Century Skills page dedicated to the Framework.
They have broken down the skills into 4 Basic Categories. Here I will outline what those categories are, but will be going into further detail in subsequent blog postings.
- Core Subjects and 21st Century Themes
- Learning and Innovation Skills
- Information, Media, and Technology Skills
- Life and Career Skills
It may seem at this point that I am just outlining information you can find on Partnership for 21st Century Skill's website (which is true), but my goal is, once there is a good foundation of understanding, to go into further detail about how instruction needs to change because of these skills.
Take the time to really understand 21st century skills/themes - our students will be glad you did.
