Students in 21st century schools will apply their knowledge to understanding and solving real-world challenges using their 21st century skills: Learning and Innovation Skills: Creativity and Innovation, Critical Thinking and Problem Solving, and Communication and Collaboration Digital Literacy Skills: Information Literacy, Media Literacy, and ICT Literacy Career and Life Skills: Flexibility and Adaptability, Initiative and Self-Direction, Social and Cross-Cultural Skills, Productivity and Accountability, Leadership and Responsibility The book is filled with classroom vignettes, global examples, schoolwork samples, and includes a DVD with video mini-documentaries of innovative practices that bring the skills to life and offer an exciting view of what teaching and learning can and will look like as we transform learning to meet the demands of the 21st century.
Praise for 21st Century Skills "Trilling and Fadel describe in very readable, practical terms how to infuse 21st century skills from standards all the way into the classroom.

Thisbook makes clear why education must change: to help prepare students to meet complex challenges, fulfill their civic responsibilities, and live fulfilling lives. Full of crisp descriptions, 21st Century Skills persuasively shows why policymakers and educators should run—not walk—to implement 21st century learning designs. As Trilling and Fadel simply put it, it's time to give all students the chance to learn how to build a better world."—John Wilson, executive director, National Education Association "Trilling and Fadel lay out a comprehensive understanding of what is meant by 21st century skills.

Bryant, executive director, National School Boards Association "Trilling and Fadel take the 21st century skills debate beyond rhetoric, providing a substantive, compelling, and engaging argument for the skills and competencies that our children need to succeed in a Knowledge Age economy. The skills they describe are the essential lifeblood of a productive, engaged, and intelligent citizenry—this book is a must-read for skeptics and enthusiasts alike!"—Margaret Honey, president and CEO, New York Hall of Science

Replace ‘scope and sequence’ with the ‘21st Century Learning Framework,’ the P21 rainbow. Replace ‘models of curriculum and instruction’ with their ‘Project Learning Bicycle.’ And don't miss their ‘Kingdom of Learning, Learnalot,’ one of the most clever educational parables ever told.” —Milton Chen, executive director, The George Lucas Educational Foundation “Bernie Trilling and Charles Fadel have written a book that is truly visionary, providing sound insight into education in the 21st century. Their book provides solid, practical advice for educators, policymakers, business leaders and others interested in improving America’s position in the global economy. I recommend it to anyone interested in maximizing classroom effectiveness in this digital age.” —Dr. Steven L. Paine, superintendent of schools, West Virginia “A must read for anyone interested in the United States ability to compete in a global economy.

A must read!”—Elliott Masie, CEO and Chair, The Learning Consortium “Charles & Bernie’s book cuts to the core challenge facing our country—Is our education system preparing our children with the skills to succeed in a ‘flat’ 21st century world? Much more than a treatise on what is wrong with education, they provide a compelling vision for education as it should be and a roadmap for getting where we need to go.”—Keith R. Krueger, CEO, Consortium for School Networking (CoSN) “This book presents an innovative, comprehensive strategy for evolving education to meet the needs of 21st century society.” —Chris Dede, Timothy E. Wirth Professor in Learning Technologies, Harvard Graduate School of Education “21st Century Skills is full of interesting examples illustrating both what work will look like in the years ahead and how thoughtful educators are preparing children to thrive in tomorrow’s workplaces. The richness of the examples reflects the authors’ extensive knowledge of how work is changing in the nation’s most innovative firms and their deep involvement in the efforts to improve America ’s schools.” — Richard J. Murnane, Thompson Professor of Education and Society, Harvard Graduate of Education “Bernie Trilling and Charles Fadel have been two of the essential intellects behind the growth of the 21st century skills movement. We have been asked for years to provide an in-depth treatment of the 21st century skills framework. Here it is.” —Ken Kay, executive director, Partnership for 21st Century Skills; CEO, e-Luminate Group "Trilling and Fadel have captured powerful insight into critical 21st century learning skills. Life goes on and so must learning - this book is a must for anyone interested in the future of education."—Allan Weis, former IBM vice president; founder of ThinkQuest and Advanced Network and Services “This is a very informed, insightful, accessible book that will help policy makers, education leaders, teachers, parents—anyone interested in improving education—understand the profound global forces that are reshaping our society and their implications for education reform. 21st Century Skills provides specific recommendations for how we can—indeed must—change the curriculum, teaching, assessment, use of technology and the organization of our schools to better prepare students to be productive, creative citizens and workers in the global society and economy of the 21st century.” —Robert B. Kozma, Ph.D., emeritus director, Center for Technology in Learning, SRI International “Bernie and Charles have presented a well researched and futuristic frame work for changing how we teach and learn for the 21st Century. It will be up to all of us to accept this challenge and move our country and world into and beyond the 21st Century.” —Kathy Hurley, senior vice president, Pearson K-12 Solutions & Pearson Foundation; incoming chairman, The Partnership for 21st Century Skills “This is a well written and referenced roadmap for the complicated and interconnected collection of skills, knowledge and attitudes that are essential for citizens to master in our increasingly complex and rapidly changing technological society.” —John E. Abele, founding chairman of the board, Boston Scientific “Inspirational and motivational, this book is a practical guide to implementing and understanding 21st Century Skills. Every teacher and parent should read it so they can prepare their children and their students to solve the problems of tomorrow, today.”—Dr. Barbara “Bobbi” Kurshan, executive director, Curriki “After all the talk about organizing education, this book leads us back to what education is for. 21st Century Skills is a comprehensive and elegant survey of our changing world, the skills it requires, and how those skills can be taught and learned. Here is a blueprint for 21st century schooling.” —Michael Stevenson, vice president global education, Cisco “This book presents an excellent case and roadmap for K-12 schools, for balancing content knowledge delivery with the development of necessary skills for success. It can serve as a valuable guide for parents, educators, and policy makers.” —Ioannis Miaoulis, Ph.D., president and director, Museum of Science, Boston “For anyone who cares about the future of our children and their success in a global economy, 21st Century Skills is required reading.” —Gerald Chertavian, chairman, Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education's 21st Century Skills Task Force; founder and CEO, YearUp “Struggling to understand or explain the imperative for 21st century skills in our schools? Begin here.” —Julie A. Walker, executive director, American Association of School Librarians (AASL) “21st Century Skills: Learning for Life in our Times is a necessary and readable articulation of the reality of 21st Century Skills in educating today’s generation of learners. Kudos to the authors for achieving clarity on this timely topic." —Karen Cator, past chair, Partnership for 21st Century Skills “Bernie Trilling and Charles Fadel have moved beyond the hype and buzz surrounding ‘21st Century Skills’ —to provide an insightful and commonsense guide to rethink learning & teaching in a world that urgently demands innovative, inventive, self-motivated/self-directed, creative problem-solvers to confront increasingly complex global problems. As they demonstrate in their comprehensive work, by proactively developing learner-centric tools that enhance context, communication, creation and collaboration, we stand a chance of retooling our obsolete industrial-era ‘conveyor belt’ educational system—to produce a flexible, future-ready way to learn and teach in and for the new millennium. The liberating result is sure to benefit not only students in the 21st century, but those to come in the 22nd century and beyond.” —Paul Reynolds, CEO, FableVision
