21st Century Skills: Teaching & Learning

Posted Jan 07 2009 6:28pm

After usability testing, 21st Century Skills: Teaching & Learning is open to the public. The website, 21st Century Skills: Teaching & Learning, went live yesterday.

Lainie McGann posted in her blog     21st Century Skills: Teaching & Learning 

 

With the increase of accountability tied to standardized testing and No Child Left Behind’s emphasis on basic skills and knowledge as well as the goal for all students to be technologically literate by the end of eighth grade, teachers are faced with the challenge of complying with legislation and preparing their students to succeed in the 21st century.


The purpose of this project is to create an accessible tool that educators can use to find lesson plans that address their grade level’s content standards as well as 21st century skills. What originally started as a database of lessons has evolved into a website for teaching and learning 21st century skills. This website will include information on 21st century skills, a database of lessons, methods for assessing 21st century skills, a bulletin board and additional resources for teachers.

My hope is that this website will become a place for educators to collaborate and contribute their successes.

Lainie congratulations on your new Web site! I will promote it among the teachers I work with and share it with the pre-service teachers I teach. Awesome job. This will be avaluable resource.
