21st Century Learning/Skills/Education/Schools
“21st Century” is a buzzword that is ubiquitous in any writing about education. Just what is 21st Century Learning? Here are a couple of places to find an answer, each of which has about 10. The first is from a conference proceedings, which I would typically not use as a source for a masters or undergraduate class, but the authors tracked down definitions from a number of institutions that you should be familiar with. The second piece has a bunch of educational visionaries provide their own definition of 21st Century Learning.
