21st Century Skills, now called Essential Skills in Colorado, like any other content or skill, need to be purposefully modeled, taught, and assessed so students can receive feedback to continue to improve in these skills and to be successful in their future. The skills are critical to the future success of students who are predicted to have 12 or more different jobs in their lifetime, and in a world that is constantly changing in response to one innovative disruption after another.
This site contains some information and resources to help teachers integrate and assess 21st century skills.
In today’s standardized learning environment, it is difficult to find the time to help students to question and explore their own areas of interest and passion.

That strategy is called Curating. Learn how to help students get in touch with their own sense of wonder, and start on the path to personalized learning.
