There is a growing awareness of 21st Century learning especially since it has been reflected within the Australian National Curriculum with the introduction of the General Capabilities.  There is also a wide appreciation of its value, which is supported by an abundance of theory and research about contemporary pedagogy.  However, there are few teachers who know how to define these skills and more importantly, of how to design their lessons to enable students to develop key skills for work and life in the 21st Century. This course enables teachers and educational leaders to gain clear understanding of 21st Century skills and an explicit framework for improving what happens in the classroom. The outcomes of the 21CLD in Action are being able to;
·         Define key skills for work and life in the 21st Century
·         Explain what these skills ‘look like’ in the classroom
·         Be able to reflect, evaluate and improve on learning activities that you provide to students
·         Understand how 21CLD fits into the global, national and individual school context
·         Explore how the program has been successfully implemented within schools
·         Devise a clear strategic plan for implementing the course at classroom and leadership level

Join internationally renowned thought leader Bruce Dixon and National Education Officer for Microsoft Travis Smith in analyzing and debating the relevance and necessity for the 21CLD Program as well as strategy for implementing the course.
