21st Century Thinking Skills

critical thinking skillsTeachThought, a site worth knowing and visiting, had this poster up about 21st Century Thinking Skills which had been created by Mentoring Minds. Beneath the head are 25 critical thinking skills which would be easy to share with students.  For a teacher , none of this is new. They are skills we are familiar with and have been working on all the time. It’s the fact it is visual , is put together really well and makes very clear what our priorities are for the 21st Century :

1. Content Delivery
2. Sharing
3. Getting feedback

which then creates

1. More and better content delivery…

The 21st century is very much a collaborative learning loop where we engage in the real world and use the input and feedback to create more and better ideas. With technology you are not in a content bubble, you are in a fluid cross curriculum learning situation where you can showcase your subject area but it needs input from other areas to make it take life and grow in any real sense in the technology age.

  1. Cathy, this is surely a deserving post. I like your statement “The 21st century is very much a collaborative learning loop where we engage in the real world and use the input and feedback to create more and better ideas. With technology you are not in a content bubble…” Exactly and simply a great statement

    • Thanks for that comment ,Ali. There is a way of operating now where we can be in the real world but seamlessly integrate with technolgy to feed our ideas and sustain our thinking and then translate that back into real world knowledge and ideas. it is quite exciting really and no, you can’t stay in a content bubble because you have to keep the flow going by moving in and out of skill sets and ideas. The overlap is what creates new ways of thinking and doing.
