21st Century Skills = Fluff?

Evan Abbey, The Changing Face of Education in Iowa, Jan 13, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Summary of discussions that have taken place recently on the topic of "21st century skills." Evan Abbey writes, "Our problem is not that we can't teach 21st century skills unless it is content specific, it is rather that we are content specific to begin with. When we compartmentalize our content in an effort to put it on a pedestal, we compartmentalize our learning of it, so that it has no relevance to the larger picture."
