Video summarizes the Are They Really Ready to Work Report. Gives a simple, three-step plan for 21st century instruction: 1. Build a foundation by teaching skills together across curriculum, 2. Exploration into careers, and 3. Application of knowledge.

Teaching the 21st Century Learner

Rethinking Learning: The 21st Century Learner | MacArthur Foundation

Kids are born consuming media but not necessarily creating it; 21st century learning is about becoming the creator or producer. These skills are not all about the workforce but also preparing students for what they need to participate in contemporary society. The role of teachers is to give students access to what they need and the opportunity to be reflective.

A survey of 200 college students and learning today. The students state that they are multi-taskers and need more electronic mediums to create and they no longer rely on textbooks.
