Starting in the fall I will be teaching a class to seniors called, "21st Century Skills". We will be giving each student a laptop (apple of course). The content of the class has not be set yet, but will include 21st Century skills and Web 2.0. I would love input from my colleagues on what these students need to survive in the "real world". What are your thoughts on this topic? Does anyone else do anything like this?

Thanks - I love David Warlick's stuff. Have heard him speak a couple of times! Definitely plan to incorporate his ideas.

Hi Tanya,

This sounds like an awesome class! Would you be interested in collaborating with my elementary students when I take over my new role as 21st Century Literacy specialist at the International School Bangkok next year?

Wow! Wouldn't that be neat. A bunch of seniors in western Kansas and elementary students in Bangkok! Gotta love it. Let's do it!

One of the elements to a 21st Century Skills class that I would consider is to have them identify problems, examine them, and work through them, using the tools to make it happen. The power of Web 2.0 tools is the ability it gives us to gather, discuss, and act on information and then share the results with others. That is how I use these tools in my real life, Skype my colleagues any time of the day, collect our project information in a wiki to help coordinate project details, discuss the issues in a forum, etc. Those are my thoughts.

I love the idea of partnering with students in Bangkok!!! Can't wait to hear how it goes!

Intel's Teaching to the Future Skills curriculum would be great. Another source I would recommend is If you get a chance to take that training, jump on it. You would love it. Another idea is a collaboration between your students and the 18 students enrolled in my "Technology in the Classroom" class for future teachers attending Sterling College. Maybe between my students and yours, lessons can be developed for successful integration of technology that provides inspiration to continue learning.
