21st Century Skills

The term 21st century skills refers to a broad set of knowledge, skills, abilities, work habits, and learning dispositions that are believed—by educators, school reformers, college professors and others—to be critically important to succeed in today’s world. Generally speaking, 21st century skills can be applied in all academic subject areas, and in all educational, career, and civic settings throughout a student’s life.

While many individuals and organizations have proposed definitions of 21st century skills, and most states have adopted learning standards that include or address cross-disciplinary skills, one of the most important model that we have adopted to frame our own working and learning style that can serve to illustrate the concept and its applications in education is the Framework for 21st Century Learning (The Partnership for 21st Century Skills).
