STRUCTURE AND CONTENTS:
During the first sessions we analyzed the rapid change that has occurred in traditional teaching methods and extracted the consequences that this transformation has on teaching and students.
The capacities of the XXI Century were then studied in an intensive and detailed manner.
Reflecting on all of them and integrating them as objectives of our programs, as well as thinking about the activities and techniques that will allow students to acquire them in the most efficient way possible, were the final goals of this workshop.
What are 21st century skills?
The 21st century skills are a set of abilities that students need to develop in order to succeed in the information age. The Partnership for 21st Century Skills lists three types:
Initiative Social Skills
21st Century Standards
- Focus on 21st century skills, content knowledge and expertise.
- Build understanding across and among academic subjects as well as 21st century interdisciplinary themes
- Emphasize deep understanding rather than shallow knowledge
- Engage students with the real world data, tools, and experts they will encounter in college, on the job, and in life–students learn best when actively engaged in solving meaningful problems
- Allow for multiple measures of mastery
- Support a balance of assessments, including high-quality standardized testing along with effective classroom formative and summative assessments
- Emphasize useful feedback on student performance that is embedded into everyday learning
- Require a balance of technology-enhanced, formative and summative assessments that measure student mastery of 21st century skills
- Enable development of portfolios of student work that demonstrate mastery of 21st century skills to educators and prospective employers
- Enable a balanced portfolio of measures to assess the educational system’s effectiveness at reaching high levels of student competency in 21st century skills
