Improve 21st Century Skills in Classrooms Using Supplemental Sources: Webinar
In the 21st century, the focus of learning has moved from the three Rs—reading, writing, and arithmetic—to the four Cs—critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity. These 21st-century skills are an integral part of a student’s full education in every subject, and supplemental resources can create opportunities to promote these skills in K12 classrooms. Join instructional designer Waneta Hebert for a webinar about all four of these important skills, including why they matter and how you can promote them in your classes.
In this webinar, we will explore several research-based strategies to help students:
- Think critically about complex topics
- Communicate with their peers
- Collaborate to accomplish goals
- Solve problems creatively.
