What's New About "21st Century Competencies?"

Here is a partial list of competencies to start discussion:



-     Competencies associated with metacognition and a growth mindset are essential for ongoing success in the 21st century



-     Competencies related to local, global, and digital citizenship enhance individuals’ ability to respond constructively in changing or challenging circumstances.



-     Competencies associated with creativity and innovation are important elements in entrepreneurial activity



-     Significant reviews of curricula to embed 21st century competencies are required (and are being undertaken by a growing number of countries).

-     Physical Space: Research supports the notion that where we learn affects the quality of how we learn

-           
THESE 4 ARE MY PARTICULAR INTEREST
-      A broad repertoire of pedagogical strategies is required to support the emphasis on deep learning and new learning partnerships. 


-     The Role of Technology:  In addition to developing students’ technological skills, technology-enabled teaching and learning practices play a significant role in supporting the development of the full range of 21st century competencies.
