21st Century Skills Definition

21st Century Skills Definition | Christian high School libraries | Scoop.it
The term 21st century skills refers to a broad set of knowledge, skills, work habits, and character traits that are believed—by educators, school reformers, college professors, employers, and others—to be critically important to success in today’s world, particularly in collegiate programs and contemporary careers and workplaces. Generally speaking, 21st century skills can be applied in all …

Great for advocacy and defining the skills we need in the 21st century school library

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, April 19, 5:34 PM

A recent article on The Glossary of Education Reform began with the basic definition of 21st Century Skills and moved into the debate surrounding the implications of teaching cross disciplinary, process skills  – the 21st century aspect of education – versus teaching content – viewed as a 20th century focus.  In our era of standardized testing this debate is happening everyday.  In struggling schools – often schools of poverty – the push to maintain the traditional focus on content knowledge ties the hands of teachers who want to provide a richer curriculum for students. Teachers in poorer schools struggle with filling academic gaps and providing interventions. In our wealthier schools, students often have the background knowledge of facts or the technology and home support to get the facts that will take them to higher levels of thinking.

It is critical as we want to prepare all students for success in college and careers that our poorest students have the experience with thinking skills, problem solving, and cross disciplinary exploration.  As it currently stands, many of our poorer students are passing standardized tests, graduating from school unprepared to compete with students who have experienced a more complex education.  We must provide all students a 21st century education – we will need to re-invent our struggling schools to build strong foundations that allow students to experience the same educational depth and complexity offered at wealthier schools.

7 Ways My Classroom is Better Because I Connect

7 Ways My Classroom is Better Because I Connect | Christian high School libraries | Scoop.it

Being connected is not easy....on Twitter building relationships and co-moderating and participating in education chats. Constantly reading (and writing!) blogs; all this in the pursuit of being a better teacher. Although the time it takes to develop a network is substantial, the benefits of connection far outweigh the efforts.

Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, February 18, 11:17 AM

Wait, the results are "surprising, considering that the students are, after all, digital natives." ?? When are we going to retire this cliche? Being able to evaluate multiple sources of information or to research beyond Google are not innate skills. We fail students EVERY TIME we call them digital natives. It's lazy, and it annoys me. They also live surrounded by print, but we don't call them reading natives.


OK, climbing off the soapbox, because at the very end of this article, school librarians are mentioned as being potential leaders in instruction. At least we agree on something! This is what most of my colleagues and I do every day in the library. Digital literacy education should be embedded in every lesson we teach, as part of the critical thinking skills we know students need.
