A Parent’s Guide to 21st-Century Learning

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.

Here is a link: http://www.edutopia.org/parent-21st-century-learning-resource-guide

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
