21st Century Skills

21st Century Skills
3 Steps

The illiterate of the 21st Century will not be those who cannot reed and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn. – Alvin Toffler

What skills must students learn to be literate in the 21st Century?
Competition
Cooperation
Collaboration
With whom will our students be competition?
With whom will our students be cooperation?
With whom will our students be collaboration?

How do we help our students become culturally literate, 21st Century learners?
How can we introduce our students to their global peers?
Where do we start?

Step 1
Transform your classroom into a CREATIVE learning space
I never teach my pupils; I only attempt to provide the conditions in which they can learn. – Albert Einstein
What are we preparing our students for, if we teach them in conditions like this? (ภาพห้องเรียนแบบเก่า)
Why do so many classrooms still resemble those from the 1960s? (ภาพห้องเรียนสมัยเก่า)
We should be preparing our students to be global, 21st Century citizens and lifelong learners.
Step 1
Transform your classroom into a CREATIVE learning space by letting students TALK
Transform your classroom into a CREATIVE learning space by letting students BULID
Transform your classroom into a CREATIVE learning space by letting students CREATE
Transform your classroom into a CREATIVE learning space by letting students COLLABORATE
Your classroom should be beautiful.
Your classroom should be comfortable.
Your classroom should be student-centered.

Step 2
Teach students the skills of competition, cooperation and collaboration.
We must teach students to compete with themselves and cooperate with others.
Teambuilding must be a component of every teacher’s curriculum becaouse…
…learning can only begin when students feel secure with those who share their learning space.
Teach them the skills of cooperative and collaborative learning because…
…learning is social.
The biggest enemy to learning is the talking teacher. – John Holt

Step 3
Introduce your students to their global peers and provide the oppertunity for them to collaborate.
Find and connect with learners around the world.
First, make it personal. Have students connect individually.
Then, plan collaborative class projects.
If our students do not learn to collaborate and cooperate with their global peers…
how will they be able to compete with them in the global workforce?
These tools can connect learners and make learning collaborative and powerful!

Welcome to 21st Century Learning!
