As we forge ahead in education, the learning environment has become one that not only prepares students for the knowledge and skills that are fundamental for education, but also for life after school.
Noted in 21st Century Learning: “Every child in the U.S. needs 21st century knowledge and skills to succeed as effective citizens, workers and leaders.”
As mentioned in Deeper Learning: Collaboration is Key: “In preparing our students for college and careers, 21st century skills call on us to develop highly collaborative citizens.”
Not only meant for sharing of ideas, collaboration in a flexible classroom can support what is known as the 4C’s for 21st Century Readiness:
- Critical Thinking and Problem Solving
- Creativity and Innovation
These four skills lend themselves to assist students well outside the classroom once K-12 education is over, and promote success in college, career, and life.
