COMPETENCES FOR THE 21ST CENTURY SCHOOLS. Each of the approaches to understanding of 21st century skills and how they fit with our notions of education and the function it serves, emphasises skills that diverge from modern traditional notions of academic disciplines.
They all actually identify enabling skills - skills that we need to navigate our global society. They converge on a common set of 21st century competences - collaboration, communication, ICT literacy, and social and/or cultural competencies; and most include creativity, critical thinking, productivity, and problem-solving. Collaborative problem solving is a complex skill requiring both social and cognitive competencies. It was rationalised by the ATC 21S project team as a composite skill arising from the links between critical thinking, problem solving, decision making and collaboration. Collaborative problem solving is a set of skills that we need to rely on when the capacities or resources of just one person are not sufficient to solve the problem.

As an ICT (Computer) teacher the teaching method that I use is learning by doing.

Many states are incorporating performance-based assessments into their standardized tests or adding assessment vehicles such as student portfolios and presentations as additional measures of student understanding. These rigorous, multiple forms of assessment require students to apply what they're learning to real world tasks. With these formative and summative types of assessment come the ability to give students immediate feedback.
My PBL Learning Diary. Which of the 5 components (or keys as they are called in the video) you feel will be the most challenging for you to realize and why?
