I often wonder how much time is spent in education really thinking about what our students need to be prepared for the 21st Century. It seems this has become a tagline that we all use but what does it really mean? As XQ states " Today's global society demands new thinking skills and higher levels of educational achievement. "
One of the many things that the XQ Super School challenge has done so well is building out quality information about what makes education tick. Here is their module that explains what these skills are. gives current research, and links to help us dig in deeper.
