Lifelong Learning Skills in the 21st Century Classroom

Watch a recording of this webinar with Hind Elyas, looking at 21st Century Skills and ideas for applying them in the classroom.

About the webinar

The term 21st century skills refers to a broad set of knowledge, skills, work habits, and character traits that are critically important for students to succeed in today’s world. (Great schools Partnership, 2016)

It is the responsibility of teachers to facilitate their students with real life skills and knowledge, help them become global citizens and make learning relevant, personalized and engaging.

The Partnership for the 21st Century Skills identified 4 key skills that are essential in the 21st Century classroom and they referred to them as the 4Cs (2007). These skills include Critical Thinking, Creativity, Communication, and Collaboration.

In this session I aim to provide the audience with a brief overview of the different 21st Century skills; The 4Cs of 21st Century Skills and how they evolved to the 6Cs, a more holistic model. The session will also provide examples of different strategies that could be used in the classroom to help learners achieve the best possible outcomes in the classroom.

Thank you so much for your wonderful presentation. Concerning the collaborative work, it is a big problem to me as like you mentioned they focus more on the tools rather than what is needed to be done mainly for the youg students with major behavior problems. Can you please advise? Thank you so much
