21st century skills : learning for life in our times

This resource introduces a framework for twenty-first century learning that maps out the skills needed to survive and thrive in a complex and connected world. Twenty-first 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. This book is filled with vignettes, international examples, and classroom samples that help illustrate the framework and provide a view of what twenty-first century teaching and learning can achieve
