Part of the Leading Edge series, an anthology that draws upon leading voices in education from around the world to explore the most pressing current issues, 21st Century Skills: Rethinking How Students Learn asks global experts the question: How can we equip students with the skills they need to succeed in the 21st century?

The contributors offer a range of ideas for building critical thinking and problem-solving skills, which are considered to be the most critical 21st century skills. In doing so, they draw from successful models from around the world. Among the teaching and learning approaches discussed are

  • Professional Learning Communities (PLCs)
  • The Singapore model of "Teach Less, Know More"
  • Problem-based learning
  • Cooperative learning
  • Technology-infused teaching and learning
  • Social networks as learning tools
A framework for assessing 21st century skills is also discussed, along with issues relating to leadership and change. 
While advancing the critical theoretical discussion of what students need to know and the best way to teach them in a changing society, 21st Century Skills: Rethinking How Students Learn also has practical applications, offering detailed models and concrete strategies that educators can implement in the classroom right away to discover for themselves what works for their 21st century learners.
