21st Century Skills are what every student needs to navigate the modern world. 100 years ago, the traditional classroom was no problem. A lot of jobs were in factories where the ability to work for long hours, without any interest whatsoever, was a plus. Education prepared students for the industrial workplace.
The world has changed! In 2021, most students won't end up in factories, but in jobs that require a whole multitude of skills. They will need the skill to think critically; assessing and evaluating their environments. They will also need creative thinking skills: not only the skill to understand the environment, but change it for the better; generating new ideas and innovating old ones.
The modern workplace is also a hotbed of communication: not just speaking, but listening, writing and reading! Instead of working alone, the 21st Century worker is in a team, and so one of the most important skills we must teach students is collaboration! If you want a job done well, you must do it together.
