What Is 21stcenturyskillsohio.org?
“21stcenturyskillsohio.org” is Ohio’s response to the need for a “one-stop shop” resource focused on infusing 21st Century Skills into education. Aligned as a “leadership state” with the national Partnership for 21st Century Skills, Ohio has made a commitment to building world class skills and knowledge in our educational system. Educators, administrators, students, parents, business and civic leaders and policymakers are now collaborating to re-vamp historical school designs and traditional classroom learning environments, re-tool academic content standards and assessment tools, and importantly, give teachers the tools and training they need to be effective in a 21st Century Classroom.
This site will support a learning community devoted to 21st Century Skills – the contemporary catch phrase which describes the level of education and types of skills individuals will need to survive, and thrive, in the decades ahead. We’ll gather and post educational research, best practices, curriculum and instruction ideas, professional development programs, ideas for effective learning environments, assessment tools and strategies, technology solutions, and funding resources for schools and school districts to use in this movement towards educational excellence.
Be sure to visit the site regularly, and join us in our steadfast resolve to work together to integrate this vitally important educational philosophy into Ohio’s schools. When students win, we all win!
