21st-Century Learning Creates New Roles for Students -- and Parents
For good reasons, schools across the country are making the shift to 21st-century learning. If you're a parent of school-aged children, you've likely heard this phrase. Today's students need to master a new set of skills that will prepare them for the challenges and changes ahead. Being ready for college and careers means not only learning important academic content, but also knowing how to collaborate, think critically and creatively, and use technology tools to communicate.
Rote learning and memorization won't help students become nimble, creative thinkers who can work well with others. Instead, schools that embrace 21st-century learning are creating opportunities for students to practice these critical skills through technology-rich experiences. Project-based learning gives students a chance to solve real-world problems while learning what it takes for teamwork to work well.
To help parents get a better picture of what effective 21st-century learning looks like, Edutopia has just published a free guide. A Parent's Guide to 21st-Century Learning is available to download at no cost.
