21st Century Learning
21st century learning is defined as a set of abilities that students need to develop in order to succeed in the information age. There are three types of skills; learning skills, literacy skills and life skills.
These skills have always been important for students, though they are particularly important in our information-based economy. When most workers held jobs in industry, the key skills were knowing a trade, following directions, getting along with others, working hard, and being professional—efficient, prompt, honest, and fair.
