21st Century Learning and Workforce Readiness
My capstone uses the 4 C's model, which stands for Communication, Collaboration, Critical thinking, and Creativity. My students had to use all of these skills in order to create their Cesar Chavez biography, oral presentation; as well as in creating their animal report and goole slide presentation. Communication, collaboration, critical thinking, and creativity are very important skills to have in the 21st century. Employers are now looking for employees that are innovative and can think outside of the box. They must also be able to communicate clearly and work well with others. All of these skills are essential and must be taught to students so they can be better prepared for the workforce.
