2009 MILE Guide: Milestones for Improving Learning & Education

Various authors, Partnership for 21st Century Skills, Nov 06, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Just released, a guide to 21st century skills (PDF download). The core themes are "civic literacy, financial literacy, entrepreneurial literacy, health literacy and environmental literacy." Then there are learning and innovation skills, like creativity and Innovation, critical thinking and problem solving, and communication and collaboration. Also information literacy, media literacy and ICT skills. Finally, flexibility and adaptability, initiative and self-direction, social and cross-cultural skills, productivity and accountability, and leadership and responsibility. There's a lot here, but but not examined in any particular depth (it's more of a brochure than a guide) but the approach is interesting and worth some thought.
