21st Century Skills
As the culminating part of this project, we are expected to present it as if talking to a board of education. There is certainly a fear factor present with revolutionary ideas that look so radically different from traditional teaching, so being able to "sell it" is a critical point. I think a winning strategy is tied in with many schools' mission statements about making our students ready to function and contribute in an ever-changing technological world. So, in thinking about 21st Century skills that all students need, I came across this framework on a website called "Partnership for 21st Century Skills" that could be helpful when talking about any subject using technology (traditional or not).
