Here's the premise for an essential resource that introduces s framework for 21st century learning that maps out the skills needed to survive and thrive in a complex and connected world.

 Modern technology is cyclical and every generation should be poised to invent and reinvent themselves for neo-production and fundamental shifts to introduce new frameworks of learning. Authors Bernie Trilling and Charles Fadel has produced a series of goods for designing 21st century educational prompts aimed at preparing the jet-set, eager wunderkinds and just aboout anybody who aspire to challenge a new order. their new book, 21st Century Skills: Learning For Life in Our Times is touted by them and others to be an innovative learning module for creativity to justify change. This essential resource introduces nine chaptters divided into three parts complete with a wealth of adjunct nuggets augmenting research methodology for thoroughness. The key I’m sure is to map out the expertise needed to survive and thrive in a complex core curriculum of subjects such as reading, writing, and arithmetic—but also emphasizes contemporary themes such as global awareness and financial/economic, health, and environmental literacies. Students in 21st century schools will apply their knowledge to understanding and solving real-world challenges using their 21st century skills and this needed to keep our students on top of new ideals.

 

Any book focusing on emphasizing the love of learning with a blueprint for direction to create a better and viable world is something that will always be par for the course. I love the premise of this book because it brings critical thinking up front with the objective goals and subjective topics for good operative skills tangent to education, learning and futuristic endeavors. Moreover, I was fascinated on how Trilling and Fadel posed questions apropos to giving readers scenarios to further illustrate points of contention. I considered all of the queries therein which gave me fodder to express in this review why children, astute students and educators should be willing to take risks for better teaching modules. The 21st century skills to be learned in this book covers essentials to prepare the next Einstein, or even ordinary folk for extraordinary goals. Things like critical thinking, information literacy, not how to deal with the media as we know it, but embracing the new digital depth and communications on a level that transcends anything that we have going today. If viable career and life skills are part of this process there has to be a modicum for leadership and responsive ennui for productivity to be accountable to initiate self-direction and flexibility.


I not only applaude the authors but as an educator myself, I adhere to all that has been espoused to teach my present and future students new curricula for a prepared state of awareness. Thank you Bernie Trilling and Charles Fadel for a job well-done. This book is superlative to anything else out in the literary educational resource pool and should enhance bookshelves in homes and schools. As such, I rate it 5 out of 5 stars and recommend that you buy it where books are sold!
