I came a cross a fascinating white paper the other day called Learning for the 21st Century. It appears to have been published in late 2003 or early 2004. The report comes from the Partnership for 21st Century Skills, a public-private partnership reinvigorating K-12 education in the U.S.
The list of members is quite impressive, including: Adobe, Agilent Technologies, American Association of School Librarians, AOL, Apple, Bell South, Cable in the Classroom, Cisco Systems, Dell, the Educational Testing System, Ford Motor Company, Intel, JA Worldwide, Leapfrog Schoolhouse, McGraw-Hill Education, Microsoft, Oracle, Pearson Education, SAP, SAS, Texas Instruments, Thomson-Gale, Time-Warner, Verizon, as well as the American Federation of Teachers, the National Education Association, the U.S. Department of Education.
Despite the focus on K-12, thereâ€™s a lot here of use to university educators, especially if we want to be ready for these same students when they arrive here at the university.
