I read six chapters or so in this book. It opened my eyes - to not only more details about the 21st century skills, but to how far behind most of the schools I visit are in reaching implementation of the 21st century skills. Just to note - I'm on board with 21st century learning - think it's fabulous, totally what we need in our schools. That said - after reading these chapters - I feel affirmed in my belief that we need to focus on how to help teachers become 21st century teachers because the ...more

Read for an online education class. I can't say that I'd necessarily recommend either experience.

Review of 21st Century Skills: Rethinking How Students Learn
Editors: James Bellanca and Ron Brandt
Solution Tree Press

21st Century Skills: Rethinking How Students Learn deals with the suggestion that new skills are required to learn effectively in the 21st century. The skills are suggested, but, as one reads the book, it becomes apparent that the skills are intuitive and this book attempts to redefine traditional learning concepts.

This book is comprised of 15 chapters from different contributors

This collection of essays on 21st century skills by leading thinkers in the field of education are a welcome addition to the growing body of literature calling for an expanded vision of the outcomes of public education. While I agree with much of what is here, I appreciate the diversity of voices and perspectives included which inevitably led to places of dissonance, but in general reaffirmed my commitment to teaching toward a more robust vision of the whole child.

That said I appreciate

I read this anthology of essays more for professional reasons than personal, ergo the three-star review. The ideas are interesting and thoughtful, but not earth-shattering or provocative.

I'm presently looking at how teachers can create plagiarism-proof assignments and engage students more deeply in learning. Howard Gardner's "Five Minds for the Future" and John Barell's "Problem-based Learning: The Foundation for 21st Century Skills" addressed my concerns most closely, although I found that

A good look into the direction of schools post No Child Left Behind. I liked that each chapter was written by a different author each with their own unique role in the advancement of education and finding better ways to learn.

This anthology of 21st century education leaders asks why 21st century skills are needed for the future, which skills are most important, and how can schools add these skills in order to get 21st century results. There are different opinions throughout the book, but all with a common thread: we must teach 21st century skills in order to prepare students for the world outside of the classroom. From Gardner to November to Richardson, each chapter brings a new perspective on the challenges and ...more
