  1. 21st Century Skills Dawn Samples LLSOF July 2010

  2. What are 21st Century Skills? What do our students need to be able to know and do? want

  3. Here is what LSDO learners say…


  5. 21st Century SkillsRethinking How StudentsLearn This anthology introduces the Framework for 21st Century Learning from the Partnership for 21st Century Skills as a way to reenvision learning and prepare students for a rapidly evolving global and technological world. This dynamic new framework promotes innovation through critical thinking, problem solving, collaboration, and technology integration, while building on mastery of core content and background knowledge.

  6. Core Subjects Mastery of core subjects and 21st century themes is essential for students in the 21st century. Core subjects include: English, reading or language artsWorld languagesArts Mathematics Economics Science Geography History Government and Civics

  7. What would you see in a 21st century classroom?

  8. In the 21st Century classroom… Teacher facilitating learning Teacher modeling learning Teacher releasing learning to the learner Learners utilizing technology in various ways Connections to multiple content areas Self-directed learning Organization of information for communication Collaboration (teachers and students) Cooperative learning Performance assessments

  9. Cont’d Authentic Assessments Cultural connections to diverse cultures and practices Resolving conflicts collaboratively Shift in how instruction is delivered to a 21st century environment Active learning Fluency in multiple media Learners expressing themselves through non-linear, associational webs of representations Personalized learning experiences co-designed by teachers and students Sharing, thinking, co-creating Dede & Darling-Hammond

  10. How might we effectively infuse these outcomes into an already over-crowded curriculum? Which current educational practices and school structures are likely to support the attainment of 21st century outcomes, and which may inhibit? McTighe & Seif

  11. Schooling by Design Organizer 5 Essential questions linked to 5 interrelated components: Mission of schooling Principles of learning Curriculum and assessment system Instructional programs and practices Systemic support factors Wiggins & McTighe

  12. Let’s reflect on what we know so far… When considering the following slides ask yourselves this: What are we doing right? What areas need to change? What do we need to continue? McTighe & Seif

  13. MISSION OF SCHOOLING:Does the school or district mission include 21st Century outcomes? McTighe & Seif

  14. Principles of Learning:What principles of learning should guide educational practices in the 21st century? McTighe & Seif

  15. Research-based principles of learning Learning is purposeful and contextual. Experts organize or chunk their knowledge around transferable core concepts (“big ideas”) that guide their thinking about the domain and help them integrate new knowledge Different types of thinking (classification, categorization, inferential reasoning, analysis, synthesis, and metacognition) mediate and enhance learning. Learners reveal and demonstrate their understanding when they can apply, transfer, and adapt their learning to new and novel situations and problems. McTighe & Seif, Figure 7.2

  16. Research-based principles of learning New learning is built on prior knowledge. Learners use their experiences and background knowledge to actively contruct meaning about themselves and the world around them. Learning is social. Attitudes and values mediate learning by filtering experiences and perceptions. Learning is nonlinear; it develops and deepens over time. Models of excellence and ongoing feedback enhance learning and performance. Effectively accommodating a learner’s preferred learning style, prior to knowledge, and interests enhances learning. McTighe & Seif, Figure 7.2

  17. A Curriculum and Assessment System:How will we design a coherent curriculum and assessment system to integrate 21st century outcomes? McTighe & Seif

  18. Three Guidelines for ImplementationWhat principles of learning should guide educational practices in the 21st century? Guideline One: Focus on “Big Ideas” in Core Subjects and 21st Century Skills Guideline Two: Assess Valued Outcomes in Appropriate Ways Guideline Three: Map the Curriculum Backward Jay McTighe & Elliott Seif

  19. SO…How do we do this?? The adoption of learning principles that emphasize deep understanding of subject matter and transfer of learning; “backward design” of curriculum and assessment, a focus on “big ideas” and essential questions, open-ended, performance and cornerstone assessments at all school levels and areas imply the need for major change in our day-to-day teaching behaviors, n’est-ce pas? Adapted from McTighe & Seif

  20. Instructional Programs and PracticesHow should we teach to achieve 21st century outcomes? Indicator One: Interactive Strategies Actively Engage Students in Developing Understanding of Big Ideas and the Application of 21st Century Skills Indicator Two: 21st Century Skills Are Explicitly Taught and Applied in the Academic Areas McTighe & Seif

  21. Instructional Programs and PracticesHow should we teach to achieve 21st century outcomes? Indicator Three: Students Have Multiple Opportunities to Transfer Learning to New Situations Indicator Four: Teachers Use Ongoing Assessments to Monitor Students’ Level of Understanding of Ideas and Skills, and Adjust and Pace and Level of Instruction Accordingly McTighe & Seif

  22. Instructional Programs and PracticesHow should we teach to achieve 21st century outcomes? Indicator Five: Teachers Establish a Classroom Culture and Climate That Values Student Participation; Respects Student Ideas, Questions, and Contributions; and Encourages Students to Generate Ideas, Questions, and Conjectures McTighe & Seif

  23. Systemic Support:What policies, school structures, and resource allocations are needed to support the development of 21st century outcomes? McTighe & Seif

  24. Framework for 21st Century Learning:Summary of Key Points Mission Statement Learning Principles Curriculum Assessment Instruction Systemic Factors Jay McTighe & Elliott Seif

  25. How might teachers respond and join their learners in the 21st century mindset? Focus on 3 ways to respond to the challenges Consider functions rather than tools Revising technology policies Developing students’ minds through intentional instruction Fisher & Frey

  26. How do we prepare learners for mastery of 21st century skills? Gradual Release of Responsibility Focus Lessons Guided Instruction Collaborative Tasks Independent Learning Fisher & Frey

  27. Humans need to communicate, share, store and create. As a species, we’ve engaged in these functions for centuries. There’s really nothing new about them. What is new are the forms, or tools, that students use to meet these needs. Fisher & Frey

  28. Focus areas and skills in the 21st Century Core

  29. Think, Pair, Share… Read your assigned slide and jot down how your curriculum units at your level (age appropriate) might address some of the targeted 21st century skills. With your partner discuss how you be able to integrate opportunities for your students to practice these skills into your classroom. Choose one of you to report back to the group. Explain what topic you had to discuss and what your reflections are as a pair.
