from Susan S

That's what I call a race between education and technology.

Too bad Hulu is only available in the US. Does anyone have a youtube link to the same video?

hmmm.... good question.

I'll try to find out.

Speaking of 21st century skills, the list appears to be growing, not unlike the list of learning styles, I gather:

* Creativity and innovation
* Critical thinking and problem solving [is that 2 skills or 1?]
* Communication
* Collaboration
* Information literacy
* Media literacy
* ICT literacy
* Flexibility and adaptability
* Initiative and self-direction
* Social and cross-cultural skills
* Productivity and accountability
* Leadership and responsibility

measuring 21st century skills

I say we forget the liberal arts disciplines and stick to basics.

Google "liberal arts disciplines" and kitchen table math, the sequel is number seven on the list.

That's not good.

About the only skill on that list which I could call 21st century specific is ICT literacy, and that's stretching things a bit.

What about PowerPoint skills? Or is that part of ICT?

Speaking of ICT skills, does anyone have a school web site where all links exist and everything is current for the 2008-2009 school year? I love all of our teacher/class links. Nothing is there! Maybe they aren't interested in communication.
