This week in ED 307 we studied 21st century skills. We read and explored the Partnership for 21st Century Skills and the report Are They Really Ready to Work? The assignment for this week included making an infographic which I included down below. This is the first infographic I have ever created, but I really enjoyed doing so. I know it is not the best, but practice makes perfect!
We live in such a digital age. As a future educator, I feel as if I must be one step ahead. Whether students grow up to be workplace ready falls on the educators. Some of the critical skills that employers believe to be essential in the workplace are listed in my infographic. Educators need to be very familiar with 21st century skills as technology is ever evolving. Partnership for 21st Century Skills encourages educators, as well as districts and states, to infuse technology into education.
