Extra Credit: 21st Century Learner Standards and you

We have been learning about so many tools in just these few weeks but how can I put it into perspective?  How can I help my students become the collaborator, creator and communicator of information?

Take a look at the Standards for the 21st Century Learner published by the American Library Association.  Print out or save a copy and think how can I apply these in my weekly lessons?


So, what stood out to you after reading these standards?  How are you using them/OR will use them in your classroom?  What subject/grade levels do you think correlate with these standards?

Post your comments here.
