Students around the world need advanced skills to succeed in the globalized, knowledge based world of today. 21st Century Learning Design, or 21CLD, professional development helps teachers redesign their existing lessons and learning activities to build students’ 21st century skills. It can be linked to your national or local curriculum standards. The program is based on rubrics developed and tested internationally for the Innovative Teaching and Learning (ITL) Research project.
‘‘21st century skills mean I know when my young people leave me, they will be in the best position to achieve embrace current and future skills to successfully develop our future generation’’ Scott Wieprecht MEE Teacher
