What Knowledge & Skills Do 21st Century Teachers Need?


Clauson-m120x148We often hear about 21st century learners and the knowledge and skills our students will need in the future. What about teachers? What are essential 21st century instructional skills that teachers will need to prepare our students? How are they different than the skills teachers have needed in the past?

As ASCD’s Annual Conference approaches, the big question on my mind is: how do we make sure teachers are prepared to meet the needs of 21st century learners?
