Edutopia has just released a great digital booklet on how to put a finger on what 21st-century learning skills really are and how they are reflected in project-based learning. Thank you to Suzie Boss for posting it first on her blog.
You’ll have to sign in to download it, but I’ve skimmed it and plan to send the link to my students’ parents this week. It does a really nice job explaining the what, how, and when questions that come along with shifting the common classroom’s focus away from more traditional settings.
I especially enjoy the emphasis on the four Cs: Collaboration, Creativity, Communication, and Critical Thinking
