About the Authors | Comments
Of the 21st century skills vital for success in education and the workplace, "the 4Cs"—critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity—have been highlighted as crucial competencies.
This book shows how teachers can more purposefully integrate technology into instruction to facilitate the practice and mastery of each of the 4Cs along with other learning objectives. It's packed with practical and engaging strategies that will transform the way students experience learning.
Whether you want to try something new in your own classroom or discuss ideas as part of a professional learning community, you'll find lots to explore in Teaching the 4Cs with Technology: How do I use 21st century tools to teach 21st century skills?
