To prepare students for success in the globalized, interconnected, digital world of the 21st cenutry, schools need to teach them relevant skills and consider how to assess for those skills. Assessment for 21st Century Learning is a DVD series that will help school leaders understand and explain to everyone in their schools exactly how to do that.
The three DVDs included in this set are ideal for use in in workshops, team meetings, and professional learning communities. Viewers will visit 21st century initiatives in rural and urban school areas, in the U.S. and abroad. Featured expert Jay McTighe helps identify which skills and competencies students must master to succeed in this change-dominated and technology-driven world.
Through the videos, school leaders will see what effective assessment looks like when it promotes true 21st century learning for all students. They will learn how schools and districts can assess what is valuable, not just things that are easiest to test and grade.
An embedded professional development program on each DVD includes PowerPoint presentations and handouts to facilitate active learning and discussion of the concepts in the video.
