Overview
This is a story about the big public
conversation the nation is not having about
education whether an entire generation of kids
will fail to make the grade in the global economy
because they cant think their way through
abstract problems, work in teams, distinguish
good information from bad, or speak a language
other than English. How to Build a Student for
the 21st Century, TIME Magazine, December 18, 2006

Why are 21st Century Skills important?

    need to improve our global competitive position
    and develop within the global community
  • The demands o the workplace are changing
  • The nature of student experience has changed
