Partnership for 21st Century Skills

Like any website, searching through the Partnership for 21st Century Skills can seem like a daunting task.  There is an abundance of information that you could spend days looking through.  I enjoyed searching through this site and feel it is very user friendly.

I suggest you look through the site on your own but there are some  pages I would like to direct your attention too. The first is the P21 Framework Definitions. Sometimes it is difficult to understand everything that the 21st Century Skills include.  This page gives a breakdown of each skill and are especially helpful.  I did not realize everything the these skills encompass. Another great aspect is the video archive.  This page gives snapshots of different skills and how they can be implemented into the classroom.  While there are many pages I would like to direct you, the last has the largest implication for me. The 21st Century Maps are amazing.  Each gives specific examples of lessons using 21st century skills.  I wish I had more time in the day to sit and read each lesson!

Overall, this is a great site that you just have to search for yourself.  I cannot begin to relay all the information that it contains. 


  1. My problem with the site was that it was TOO much information.... daunting in a way. Even though you are correct, once you learn how to get to the different pages you can read and understand what they are all about. I still don't like the idea that you have to pay for subscriptions to some of the links they have on the home page.

  2. I agree with Deborah. There was a LOT of information, very overwhelming, but the information was interesting. The tabs at the top of the page made maneuvering throughout the webpage easier. This website could be used as a great resource inside most any classroom and a reliable one too!
