common core & 21st century skills

  • As a promoter of information fluency, I'd argue that it is a 21st century foundation skill for all core academic subjects.

    To be information fluent  means a student can independently research and evaluate digital information relevant to any topic, the common core academic subjects, as well as media studies and consumer issues.

    There's no disconnect! What do you think?

    • Common Core has been critical of the idea that our children’s education should be organized around a set of so-called “21st century skills” instead of core academic subjects such as history, science, and the arts.
