Comments Off on ATCS: Assessment & Teaching of 21st Century Skills

What are the skills for the 21st century? ATC12S started with over 250 researchers across 60 institutions and came up with four broad categories:

  • Ways of thinking
    Creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making and learning
  • Ways of working
    Communication and collaboration
  • Tools for working
    Information and communications technology (ICT) and information literacy
  • Skills for living in the world
    Citizenship, life and career, and personal and social responsibility

How do you find ways to assess 21st century skills? How do you integrate that into your classroom (f2f or online)? Take a look at atc21s.org for resources, ideas, and innovations.
