  • Creating a 21st century school
    The writer of this blog post offers a framework for schools or districts seeking to offer students a 21st century education. Ken Kay, who is CEO of a group of school leaders dedicated to that mission, recommends schools focus on the 4 C's -- critical thinking, communication, collaboration and creativity -- and offers seven steps for integrating these skills into the educational culture. Kay also suggests that strong leadership is a key component to achieving such a vision. Edutopia.org/Ken Kay's blog (8/30) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
