20th or 21st Century Skills (Week 2)

Digital & Collaborative Learning (DCL) - 21st Century Skills

Week 2 Task: Reflect how 20th century and 21st century skills differ? Do we need both?

One example...

and another one...

20th Century Skills were about knowledge and how to 'survive' in the industrial age whilst 21st Century Skills are all about collaboration, innovation, skilled communication, knowledge construction etc.

To put it simply, some stuff 'from the past' is still important, but the context needs to be different. Thanks for this insight Daniel Birch. (Mentioned in 'More than a beanbag' PL & D session.)
