Web Site Offers Information on ‘21st-Century Skills’
A new Web site is intended to give schools and policymakers information, resources, and tools on “21st-century skills.”
The site was launched last week by the Partnership for 21st Century Skills, which has education organizations and high-tech companies among its members.
Called “Route 21,” the site offers reports, recommended practices, articles, and research to help practitioners adopt 21st-century teaching practices and learning outcomes. The site will host an online community that allows educators and others to collect and share relevant content and ideas.
