21st Century Skills

In EDCN865 we have been discussing 21st century skills as outlined in the Partnership for 21st Century Skills framework.   Over the next few weeks, we will be discussing what these skills mean and what tools we might use to enhance learning of those skills.  I have found it really interesting to rewrite the sections of the course in order to frame them according to these skills.  So easy to concentrate on the Web 2.0 tools; not quite as easy to start with the skills.  Isn’t that the way with every lesson sequence?
