  • The Partnership for 21st Century Skills is a national organization that advocates for 21st century readiness for every student. As the United States continues to compete in a global economy that demands innovation, P21 and its members provide tools and resources to help the U.S. education system keep up by fusing the traditional 3 Rs with the essential 4 Cs (critical thinking and problem solving, communication, collaboration and creativity and innovation). While leading districts and schools are already doing this, P21 advocates for local, state and federal policies that support this approach for every school. The framework combines Core Subjects with 21st century topics, such as global awareness and civic literacy with the development of the skillsThe framework groups the skills into 3 large families and within those are:Learning and innovation: Creativity and innovation, Critical thinking and problem solving, Communication and collaboration

    34. 34. Wikipedia<br /><ul><li>Wikipedia is a multilingual, Web-based, free content encyclopedia project.
    35. 35. written collaboratively by volunteers from all around the world.
    36. 36. created in 2001
    37. 37. now it’s attracting over 65 millionvisitors monthly
    38. 38. As of today, there are3,342,412 articles
    39. 39. There are 12,657,217 registered users,including 1,732 administrators</li></li></ul><li>

    41. 41. Wait!!!!<br />It says:<br />Welcome to<br /> Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that <br />anyone can edit.<br />
    42. 42. A question:<br />If anyone can edit it, can we really trust the information?<br />
    43. 43. Researching with Wikipedia<br />as with all sources, not everything in Wikipedia is accurate, comprehensive, or unbiased<br />be wary of any one single source or of multiple works that derive from a single source<br />Where articles have references to external sources read the references and check whether they really do support what the article says.<br />In most academic institutions, Wikipedia, along with most encyclopedias, is unacceptable as a major source for a research paper. <br />
    44. 44. Strengths of Wikipedia<br />hyperlinking<br />access to subject matter that is otherwise inaccessible in non-native languages<br />often produces excellent articles about newsworthy events within days of their occurrence, <br />one of the few sites on the web even attempting neutral, objective, encyclopedic coverage of popular culture, <br />
    45. 45. Weaknesses of Wikipedia<br />any given article may be, at any given moment, in a bad state: for example, it could be in the middle of a large edit or it could have been recently vandalized. <br />There is no systematic process to make sure that "obviously important" topics are written about<br />one side of a controversial issue may be excellently presented, while the other is barely mentioned.<br />many contributors do not cite their sources<br />
