Schools tap '21st-century skills'

The Christian Science Monitor weighs in on the 21st C skills movement: "For decades, the emphasis in public education has been on making sure that students can read, write, and do math. But can they apply those skills in a real-world scenario, such as designing a bridge? Can they identify what information they need and use digital tools to find it?" In a related eSchool News story, according to a recent American Society for Quality survey, educators say addressing 21C skills should top the list of priorities in Obama's plan, so students are prepared for the workplace of tomorrow.
