  • SIX KEY ELEMENTS OF 21ST CENTURY LEARNING FROM THE PARTNERSHIP FOR 21ST CENTURY SKILLS
    • 21st Century Context:  Experiences that are relevant to students' lives, connected with the world beyond the classroom, and based on authentic projects are central to the sort of education the Partnership for 21st Century Skills defines as the appropriate context for learning in the information age.
    • Culminating Activity
    • Meaningful Authentic Use
    •   Performance or Product
    • School or community project
    • Decision making project
    • Problem solving project
    • Investigation project
    • Invention or design project

  •  
  • PROJECT-BASED LEARNING, PROBLEM-BASED LEARNING, AND INQUIRY-BASED LEARNING
    • All fit well with technology-rich lear n ing environments where the focus is not on the hardware and software, but on the learning experience.
    • Technology is used to facilitate learning. It may be a tool to organize ideas (such as Inspiration), search for current information (such as an online news source), or present ideas (such as PowerPoint presentations).
  • PROJECT-BASED LEARNING
    • An approach to learning focusing on developing a product or creation. The project may or may not be student-centered, problem-based, or inquiry-base
    • Background information
  • PROJECT BASED LEARNING
    • Use of classroom projects, intended to bring about deep learning, where students use technology and inquiry to engage with issues and questions that are relevant to their lives.
    • Use technology in meaningful ways to help investigate, collaborate, analyze, synthesize and present learning.
  • PROBLEM-BASED LEARNING
    • An approach to learning focusing on the process of solving a problem and acquiring knowledge. The approach is also inquiry-based when students are active in creating the problem.
    • Background info
  • PROBLEM BASED LEARNING VIDEO Video
  • INQUIRY-BASED LEARNING
    • A student-centered, active learning approach focusing on questioning, critical thinking, and problem-solving. It's associated with the idea "involve me and I understand.
  • WHICH IS RIGHT FOR ME?
    • Project Based Learning
    • Problem Base Learning
    • Inquiry Based Learning

  • SIX KEY ELEMENTS OF 21ST CENTURY LEARNING FROM THE PARTNERSHIP FOR 21ST CENTURY SKILLS
    • 21st Century Content:  The report's authors believe that certain content essential for preparing students to live and work in a 21st century world is missing from many state and local standards.

  • SIX KEY ELEMENTS OF 21ST CENTURY LEARNING FROM THE PARTNERSHIP FOR 21ST CENTURY SKILLS
    • 21st Century Content:  The report's authors believe that certain content essential for preparing students to live and work in a 21st century world is missing from many state and local standards. 
    • Clear Interpretation of Standards
      • People often confuse standards with curriculum. "Standards are broad statements of expectation of what our students should know and be able to do in order to succeed in college“
      • Should encompass higher order thinking skills and skills of collaboration and communication
      • Standards Driven Instruction
      • National Standards
    • Curriculum Maps
      • Local districts will still be responsible for developing their own curriculums to meet those goals.

  • SIX KEY ELEMENTS OF 21ST CENTURY LEARNING FROM THE PARTNERSHIP FOR 21ST CENTURY SKILLS
    • New Assessments that Measure 21st Century Skills:  "As pervasive as assessment seems to be today," the report says, "it remains an emerging and challenging field that demands further study and innovation." Recommendations include moving beyond standardized testing as the sole measure of student learning; balancing traditional tests with classroom assessments to measure the full range of students' skills; and using technology-based assessments to deliver immediate feedback.
    • Assessments should match the units and lessons outlined in the standards.
    • Develop assessments and implement them. Evaluate and improve assessments.
    • Align formative and summative assessments to curriculum and instruction.
    • Provide training to staff on how to use assessments.
  • ASSESSMENTS

    • Can be used to adjust instruction
