Framework for 21st Century Learning - The Partnership for 21st Century Skills

Framework for 21st Century Learning - The Partnership for 21st Century Skills | ESL Teaching | Scoop.it

The Framework presents a holistic view of 21st century teaching and learning that combines a discrete focus on 21st century student outcomes (a blending of specific skills, content knowledge, expertise and literacies) with innovative support systems to help students master the multi-dimensional abilities required of them in the 21st century.

The overview of 21st Century Learning focuses on student mastery of 21st century skills indispensable to succeeding in work and life in the 21st century.
Ness Crouch's curator insight, July 4, 2013 5:48 PM

This is an excellent summary of 21st Century learning!

Selin Gelinci's curator insight, October 31, 2013 11:40 AM

This is a useful resource as  it explores further into the framework for the 21st century learning. It combines a discrete focus on the outcomes, specific skillsa and content knowledge that should be gained through the learning program. The diagram helps understanding further into the support system and how it all collaborates. This is benefical to me as a future teacher as it gives me a clear understanding of how i can manage my time effectively and make sure i am always covering aspects that are relevant to the 21st century learning.

Not sure how effective this way of teaching is, though you can't deny its influence on the communicative method of teaching. Certainly makes good food for thought.

Kassandra Saravia's curator insight, October 8, 2013 10:23 PM

This is a very good insight to one of the ways that different languages are taught, whether it is English or another language. Peronsally I don't feel that this quite works because it is feeding them the language and having them simply memorize words instead of having them understand it and think in the language which would then allow them to grow as well. It also doesn't seem very plausible to be done in school because it would take away from learning the lessons and not help develop their conversational skills in said language.

This may sound like a lofty title, but it’s not wrong. There’s an impressive presentation making the rounds dubbed “Mobile is eating the World” by Benedict Evans. In the presentation, Evans shows some staggering charts, interesting factoids, and all the other statistics you’d expect with a title so grand. It makes me think about mobile learning, mobile browsing, and mobile everything.

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, January 14, 2014 7:47 AM

This is a presentation called 'Mobile is Eating the World' and it is not far wrong. Amazing stats and interesting info to back up the assertation that this will be one of the most solidified options for learning very soon.

This is more and more important. Increasingly students are viewing stories and need to develop the skills to analyze what they see. A useful resource.
