"The concept of 21st century learning has become something of a buzz word in education lately. Most adults grew up prior to the Internet and as we moved into the 21st century computers and the Internet were becoming central to our lives. As such, people tend to think that 21st century skills and learning are somehow related to technology. The fact is they are not really related except that technology allows us to expand on the potential of 21st century skills.
In reality, what we are really talking about is critical thinking, collaboration, problem solving, creativity, innovation, etc. These are the 21st century skills."
