“The 21st Century Skills Movement seeks to reform education to better prepare students for success in the modern workplace. Those skills include creativity, innovation, critical thinking, communication and collaboration. We’ll talk to some Silicon Valley veterans who are working to help students attain these skills. And we’ll find out why the movement has encountered opposition from some education leaders, who favor an emphasis on core content and knowledge.
Host: Michael Krasny
Guest: Bernie Trilling, author of “21st Century Skills: Learning for Life in Our Times” and former global director of the Oracle Education Foundation
