Partnership for 21st Century Skills
The Partnership for 21st Century Skills website contains information and resources about how to integrate skills needed for 21st century learning in the classroom. This seems to be a solid start to the important task of preparing our current students for their future workplace. I was surprised at who was involved in supporting the website, which is a mix of corporations, the U.S. Department of Education, and some state departments of education. This shows there is awareness on many levels regarding the importance of integrating these skills for our future leaders, which is a very important step in the right direction for change. There was nothing on the website I disagreed with, other than it was a little difficult to navigate and find information, and I hope the corporations involved have students best interests in mind and not simply a business opportunity. As I continue to become more familiar with the website, I'm sure it will prove to be an invaluable tool in teaching me how to integrate skills into my classroom.
