21st Century Literacy

Came across an interesting video today “Students and ICT Leaders on 21C Education” part of a project by the Pearson Foundation.  It talks about “The Dawn of Learning” moving away from the traditional ‘memory recitation ability test’ to developing learners who are artistic, understand context, can synthesise content, can work in a  team, are multi-lingual as well as multi-cultural.  The 21st Century Literacies are about knowing how to find information, knowing how to validate that information, how to leverage it, communicate it, problem solve and collaborate.    It’s a great watch.
