  9. 9. Navigating Our Way to Digital Age Learning Experienced aviators rely on a variety of sophisticated tools, none of which are sufficient when used in isolation. Strengthening and Assessing 21 st Century Skills – Ferdi Serim © 2007-9
  10. 10. Our Metaphor: Maps tell you where things are in relation to one another, but won’t tell you where you are. Strengthening and Assessing 21 st Century Skills – Ferdi Serim © 2007-9

  12. 12. Our Metaphor: Radar pinpoints your location, but unless someone tracks your progress, your safe arrival is left to chance. Strengthening and Assessing 21 st Century Skills – Ferdi Serim © 2007-9
  13. 13. Our Metaphor: “ By contrast, education’s over-reliance on mandated high-stakes testing as a single accountability measure may be a disaster waiting to happen.” (FS -2002) Only a multi-faceted system involving the proper tools and effective procedures, understood by all parties within a distributed team, can safely convey everyone from departure to destination.
